Mantras and chanting are an ancient part of the yogic tradition. There are many traditional mantras—the Divine name encased in sacred sound structures—and they are powerful when repeated, creating a special vibration that provides healing benefits and profound transformation.
In the practice of kirtan, the spiritual singing and chanting of the Divine name, we musically repeat mantras together, to create a strong and positive vibration. This practice allows you to open your heart, voice, and hands to receive the benefits of kirtan.
Learn a little about Sanskrit pronunciation. Be introduced to the main deities. Try your hand at drumming or other percussion.
Each session will include pranayama (breathing exercises), a talk and chanting. Class will end with meditation.
