The Teachers’ Topics…
A Practical Kirtan Workshop:
For your yoga practice and life

with Sita Miriam Zernis
Postponed – New Date TBA
3:00 – 5:00pm

Kirtan (or sacred chanting) is an ancient, yogic tradition that can add deeper levels of spirituality to your yoga practice and help your mind experience a pure meditative state. It is the practice of Bhakti Yoga – the yoga of devotion. Chanting focuses on the sound vibrations created by our voices and how they can be used to produce a feeling of euphoria as well as to make the mind clear and present.

The practice of learning Kirtan is a subtle combination of inspiration, dedication, relaxation and devotion that we can all benefit from in some way.

Miriam will guide in first understanding the essential elements of Kirtan – mantras, bhajans (sacred songs), the energy of the Deities and Sanskrit, then in engaging in the full experience with harmonium and easy chants that can quiet the mind and open the heart. ALL voices are welcome.
