Explore yoga and the power of sound with call and response singing and chanting.
The yoga tradition offers myriad tools we can work with to cultivate integration and recover our innate capacities for deep presence and sustainable well-being. These include many sound-based techniques and practices. The extraordinary visionaries and research scientists of the ancient yoga tradition recognized the pervasive, penetrative power of sound and how the readily accessible resources of our own voices can be harnessed to foster harmony through the whole of our being.
The call and response singing and chanting of kirtan, is simple, yet powerful, as well as cleansing and uplifting. During these gatherings, James will also speak briefly about kirtan, Sanskrit as an energy-based language, the symbolism and effects of the words we use in the practice, and how kirtan relates to other practices and paths of yoga. There will also be chance for sharing and discussion.
Everyone is welcome! Do not worry if you are not a virtuoso singer. The joy and practical benefits of yoga are open to everyone.
