Chanting is one of the core practices of the yogic tradition and is thousands of years old. This easy, blissful and powerful form of yoga is quickly gaining popularity in the west. Kirtan is a celebratory high-energy group practice of call and response yogic chanting. Usually in the Sanskrit language, the chants are simple with the words provided and the learning curve is quick. This practice is one of coming together in community to co-create a strong spiritually-energetic vibration. Sound is a powerful conduit that we can use to create love, peace and inner bliss for ourselves, as well as to direct our psychic energy in manifesting our vision for the world. Participation does not require musical ability! You don't need to be able to «sing!» We are equipped enough to make sound and create a powerful vibration through our intention. When we gather together we amplify the power of that intention exponentially. Don’t miss this opportunity to experience inner peace and connection in the company of Sangha!
