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!
