Kirtan, literally translated as "to repeat," is a form of devotional chanting whose roots go back over 500 years to India. In this fun invigorating practice Sonam will lead the group in a call and response chant. Chanting can help to calm and soothe the mind, relieving stress. Plus it's fun, invigorating, and a great way to connect more deeply to yourself and to others. Come to listen, to chant, and to enjoy the transformational power of sound! No experience with chanting, singing, or yoga required!
