What is Kirtan?
Kirtan is a community happening that uses Sanskrit Mantras in a call and response method that brings unity and uplifts the collective energy. Names of the divine are chanted to awaken divine presence with us and around us. Kirtan is a Bhakti, devotional and heart felt practice that is accessible to all.
No experience is required. You will be introduced to various deities, which represent the various qualities of the ONE. The effect of chanting is scientifically proven to elevate our mood and to open our minds and hearts to our full potential.

Live Music Offerings:

This music is ambient in style with synth sounds layered with guitar, harmonium and drums
and Sanskrit mantra. Very soothing for the soul and spirit. (Class can conclude with a kirtan song at your request).


Vinyasa or Hatha Yoga with live music
A more energizing soundscape appropriate for your style of class.
