Kirtan ๑ The Sound of Yoga
Kirtan is a very different kind of music. Based on ancient chants, it has the ability to quiet the mind if listened to with intention. Everyone experiences Kirtan differently, you can think of it as a sing-along.
A Kirtan concert is not your typical concert either. Everyone sits on the floor, and the wallah (leader) sings the mantra, and the audience sings it back. As you sing with each other you experience a deep connection with the musicians, the other audience members and yourself. And when the music stops, your mind is quiet.
Because Kirtan has roots in India, many of the songs are sung in Sanskrit. It can be so powerful singing in an ancient, holy language. You will be completely immersed in the sound, with no words to distract the mind. The magic of the chants carry you within.
Dana (on guitar) & Marieke (on harmonium) will lead this Kirtan. Both practitioners of the yogic path of devotion (Bhakti yoga). Bhakti yoga is the yoga of the heart and includes singing to an object of devotion using mantra and Kirtan to connect with the heart space.
Dana grew up in a yoga ashram and was drawn to Indian music, languages and mantras from a young age. She guides people into deep relaxation and stillness with gentle guitar play and a healing voice. In 2016 she also completed the Sivananda Yoga Teacher Training in the Himalayas, India.
For an impression of her music, please check the link below:
Marieke experienced joy, stability and lightness from her yoga practice and this inspired her to take the Sivananda Yoga Teacher Training in the Himalayas in 2014. She is drawn to the devotional path of Bhakti yoga and chanting.
