Join David Quiring and I for a kirtan, hosted again by the wonderful Natasha Lenon in her cozy Little Hive Yoga Studio!
Kirtan is the yoga practice of call-and-response chanting, a method of concentrating the mind and cultivating compassion through the power of sound and resonance. Since it’ll be a week before Valentine’s Day, we will be focusing our chants and discussion on universal love and compassion.
Space is limited; secure your spot by registering at www.littlehiveyoga.ca. Exact location will be given upon completion of payment. Rest assured that it is located close to the University of Manitoba, and is bus accessible. Some chairs and props will be available for seating, but if you have your own meditation cushion, please bring it!
Friday February 7th | 7-8:30 pm | $20
Join David and I for an evening of Kirtan, a meditative practice of cultivating mindfulness through sound and breath. We will be doing our last kirtan of 2018 at Yoga Public on Sunday December 16th (6-7:30 pm, $20). The winter solstice is December 21st, so as we approach the darkest day of the year, let us join together and share our inner light.
Kirtan uses mantras to develop awareness and equanimity. Mantras are short repetitive phrases, and while they might seem esoteric at first, we are all already repeating mantras to ourselves – but usually they are negative things like, “I’m not worthy” or “I don’t belong.” We need to hit the reset button, and practice helps with that. Recalibrate yourself with traditional mantras that call in compassion, love, and understanding.
All are welcome and no experience is necessary! Enjoy the opportunity to be transformed through the power of live music, storytelling, and community in an intimate setting. All you need is to come prepared to sit (chairs will be available) and soak it all in.
Pre-register at www.yogapublic.com. See you there!
If you are interested in diving deeper into your yoga practice, a teacher training can offer more insight into the various aspects of yoga – there is always more to learn!
David Quiring and I will be guest-teaching again at the Sky Yoga Teacher Training led by Siobhan Keely in Winnipeg this spring (April 24-May 19). David and I will lead a workshop together on Kirtan and chanting practice, and I will lead an introductory workshop on Ayurveda.
