Join us for a special Yoga for Peace Kirtan on Friday 1st December. Yoga for Peace, founded in Bristol in 2011 by Devaki, celebrates peace & raises money for charities that support people affected by war.
Kirtan is a form of devotional chanting whose roots go back over 500 years to India. It is a form of Bhakti Yoga (yoga of devotion) and has the power to open the heart. By repeating simple mantras over and over, kirtan is an effortless way to experience some freedom from the daily chatter of the mind, taking us deeper into Silence.
Kirtan is for everyone. No prior experience of chanting is necessary to gain the many benefits it has to offer, simply an openness to what may occur. Through chanting, you meet the practice exactly where you need to. This might be finding a still point of relaxation after a hectic week at work, or the joy of singing together, of opening our hearts, offering our prayers to the Divine, or simply being present to the moment.
