Program

We will start the evening with a short meditation allowing the group to settle and connect to a nice silence. After the meditation Josh will give a short explanation on what Kirtan is and how to perform a traditional kirtan and mantra meditation. We will chant for around 30 minutes and then end with readings and discussion from the yoga scriptures. In yoga these sessions are typically known as - Satsang

A little more about Kirtan…

Kirtan is an ancient practice of yoga performed to open the heart and devote your thoughts towards the divine or supreme consciousness, typically chanted in the ancient language - Sanskrit. It is a practice that brings great joy and elevates the mood quickly. It’s important to know kirtan doesn’t have to be religious, you can relate to the practice in your own way, maybe thinking of it as a sing along or hymn.  

The singing or chanting of Kirtan is not about how the voice sounds but more importantly it's about the merging of voices as one, gently bringing a state of meditation.

This is a practice for everyone whether you practice asana (yoga postures) or not. Come to express yourself through kirtan or simply enjoy the vibrations and sounds of the ancient chants.

Who's josh?

After leaving my first yoga class  at the age of 16 and stepping into the car I knew that there was something special and life changing about to happen. 

 A few months later I found myself signing up for a yoga teacher training, excited to begin my deeper enquiry into yoga. The course I completed barely scratched the surface with regards to my understanding of yoga. However it did allow me to come into contact with one of my life long teachers Conrad Paul. He inspired me so much, constantly radiating light and love. Conrad urged me to take my practice further and go to India and complete a teacher training with the Sivananda yoga vedanta organisation.

With a strong desire to learn more about yoga I followed his advice and went to India. I studied Vedanta, Pranayama, Asana, Meditation and Bhakti  yoga over the course of 4 weeks and they were the most life changing weeks so far in my life.  I  am now back in my home town after living for many months in the Sivananda centres in both London and France and am excited to serve the local community using the practice and teachings of yoga.

I feel grateful  to have experienced glimpses of such bliss and clarity from my practice, for this very reason I send gratitude to the many great masters of yoga and feel strongly about passing on the teachings within our community to create harmony both physically, mentally and spiritually.
