What is Kirtan Yoga? 

 

 

 

 

Kirtan is the Sanskrit term for chanting, one of the traditional Indian yoga practices. In Kirtan Yoga, chanting is accompanied by classical Indian instruments such as the harmonium, while Sanskrit mantras are repeated using call and response, stilling the mind and opening the heart.

 

Kirtan Yoga is for all people, of all fitness levels. In this type of yoga, there are no masters, as the practice itself is the teacher, guiding us to ourselves.
