Kirtan & Yoga Nidra

Kirtan with Idgy Dean

Contemporary Kirtan with Idgy Dean, April 9, 4-6pm

At ISHTA Yoga. Details here.

Kirtan is a bhakti yoga practice that uses musical chanting to alter a yogi’s energy. The repeated use of the chanted mantra reinforced by the energy of a group is a powerful tool for transformation and for bringing an immediate sense of well-being.

In this kirtan, ISHTA Yogiraj Peter Ferko is joined by critically-acclaimed musician and yogi, Idgy Dean in what is sure to be a unique, modern take on this traditional practice. The kirtan will include a set of chants performed call and response, each one directed at a specific energy, to bring balance, insight, and wisdom into our lives.

This event is suitable for all levels of practitioner and does not require any special musical or other skill. Peter will give an introduction to the practice and explain each step along the way of this enjoyable sonic ride.
