Herts Kirtan in the Forest (inside) with me and the super chilled Dan on drums/handpan or in St Albans with Woodland Yoga and Sarah Neville (all of us trained with our beloved teacher Nikki Slade).
Kirtan is a practice of repeating simple mantra, usually call and response style, so you don't have to 'remember' the phrases. It helps to calm the incessant chatter of the mind giving space to a deeper connection to your inner self. This can lead to a state of deep inner calm, feeling of joyfulness or a sense of being able to release inner blockages or old emotions. The practice of chanting is a form of meditation that can help root us in the present moment. Bhakti Yoga is the yoga of devotion that guides us towards connecting to others with more open-heartedness and less judgement.
