Monthly Kirtan in Asheville

You can join us every month for Kirtan here in Asheville, NC.

  • When: Third Friday of each month
  • Location: Violet Owl Yoga Center

Kirtan is the chanting of sacred sounds and devotional songs, originating from the yogic tradition of ancient India. These Sanskrit mantras are known to have great power and can promote deep states of tranquility, inner peace and bliss. These powers and benefits become multiplied when we sing these mantras together in a group. Kirtan is a practice of Bhakti Yoga, the path of devotion and the yoga of the heart. Bhakti Yoga is considered the easiest yogic path to the master and the most direct method to experience the unity of mind, body and spirit. Bhakti Yoga can be practiced by itself or be integrated into other types of yoga or spiritual practices.

Sangita Devi is a Kirtan group based in Asheville who has been leading kirtan and presenting Bhakti Yoga workshops in yoga studios throughout the south east. Sangita Devi has accompanied many of the most influential Kirtan artists, including Bhagavan Das, Wynn Paris, Wah!, Jai Uttal and Dave Stringer.

We look forward to singing with you at one of our monthly kirtans soon!

  1. Planning a trip to Asheville soon and as I am a Kirtan enthusiast was hoping to chant often. With my schedule it seems Thursday thru Sunday would work best. Looking for affordable housing/ camping/ Ashram / Hostel… Hoping you might make some recomendations.

    Seeing that your weekly Kirtan’s are on Tuesdays, I was wondering if you might ever get together over the weekends? Hoping to be there before July so if there’s anything going on over the next few weeks I would love to hear about it. Thanks for being there…

    Jai Ma

  2. Seems this event is no longer happening at the location listed. This page needs updated if it was moved or canceled (or doesn’t occur in winter).

  3. Hi there Sangita Devi~
    I used to come to kirtan with you way back when you held sessions at Namaste Yoga on Broadway but seem to have lost touch over the years. I’d love to come to your Friday kirtan sometime…..are you still holding it on the third Friday of each month? At Violet Owl? But….at what time?

    Thanks and many blessings…….Namaste,
