Kirtan (from the Sanskrit word meaning to sing) is a form of folk mantra chanting that arose from the Bhakti movement of 15th century India. The Bhaktis wrote ecstatic love poems to the divine, and were irrepressibly engaged in song. Their message was simple: Cultivate joy. This class is an invitation to explore the profound effects of sound and singing as an important part of a complete yoga practice. Chantinglike singing asks us to find union and balance between breath, precision, and surrender. This practice provides an opening to deeply connect both with ourselves and with the Divine. Experiencing the vibration of your own voice can slow your heart rate, alleviate nervousness and stress, and even bring you to higher states of consciousness. Come bathe yourself in the divine nectar of Naad Yoga, the Yoga of Sound. At Kripalu, Ashana first learned about the devotional path of Yoga, called Bhakti Yoga, and slowly realized it was her own hearts path. Devotion and romance for the divine inform Ashana’s music and imbue it with a magic that can be felt, seen, and heard. A decade later, Ram Dass helped reveal the perfection of Ashanas decision to choose the path of devotional music rather than the life of a full-time classical musician. The path of grace was already in her life. Ashanas harmonic journey continued through performances with the Kripalu Drummers, Krishna Das, Jai Uttal, Ram Dass, Uma Reed, Donna De Lory, Danny Birch, Jaya Lakshmi, Daniel Paul, Tatianna Shapiro-Leiste, Lukas Nelson, Udaya Bryce and many others.
