Kirtan

 

Friday 30th September 2016 7.30pm - 9.30pm

Take a journey through sound and mantra, Bhavana’s kirtans, like their own voices and music, are dynamic and colourful, serving up a full range of chants, easy to follow and join in, for a powerful experience that takes you to the essential stillness inside.

Kirtan is chanting or singing, a form of yoga for the voice done in a group accompanied by music. It requires no background or training, and is easily learnt. Repeating Sanskrit mantras creates a meditative and uplifted mental state, and helps to melt inhibitions that can suppress your voice and expression. You add your voice to those around you, creating a sense of harmony. Some people feel a sense of calm, others a sense of elation- it’s a great way to unblock emotions and a sense of being stuck. The words and melodies are simple and repeated so that you can get into a rhythm and enter a more meditative state conducive to letting go. Bhavana’s kirtans are unique throughout the world for their dynamism, creative use of the ancient mantras, range of sounds, and ability to access so many routes to the calm place within.

Venue: Gaia, Cottrell Road, Roath, CF24 3HQ

 

 

Bhakti Yoga and the Yoga of the Voice


A Yoga workshop open to all levels


Saturday 1st October 10.30am - 3.30pm


Discover the power of sound on your body, emotions and sense of wellbeing. Using yoga asana, voicework and Kirtan, we will immerse ourselves in mantra and our voices as a tool for transformation and peace, for your own practice or to share with others. Kirtan is a form of yoga for the voice done in a group accompanied by music.

It requires no background or training and is easily learnt. Whether during yoga practice or singing with a group, repeating Sanskrit mantras creates a meditative and uplifted mental state and helps to melt inhibitions that can suppress our voices and expression. It can take us deep inside to a place of peace and stillness. Some people feel a sense of calm, others a sense of elation. Using our voices is a great way to unblock emotions.

This workshop will take you on a journey through yoga asana and mantra, deepening your understanding of the practice of Kirtan (Bhakti Yoga), Mantra and the connection of your voice, supporting you to bring more sound into your own yoga classes or to deepen your own practice.
