Explore and enhance your vocal embodiment with Mantra Yoga. Experience deep meditation through the group chanting of Kirtana.

This 90-min session mantra yoga & kirtan session will consist of a yoga warm-up (asana) for voice, breath, ears, throat, lungs and diaphragm, followed by toning vowel-mantras for opening and purifying the energy system. We end with 1 hour of kirtan: healing mantras guided with live music on guitar and harmonium.

We chant to open both the voice and creative self-expression.
Sacred sounds are a tool to deepen your spiritual practice,
supported and nourished by universal life-force energy;
imbued in mantra sound currents & your own breath.

More about KIRTAN:
Kirtan or Kirtana (Sanskrit: कीर्तन; IAST: Kīrtana) is a Sanskrit word that means “narrating, reciting, telling, describing” of an idea or story. It also means ‘song of the soul’ and refers to a genre of spiritually inspired performance arts, connoting a musical form of narration or shared recitation, particularly of spiritual or ideas arising from the Eastern spiritual traditions of India and Tibet.
