What is Kirtan?

Kirtan is call and response singing of Sanskrit mantras. This type of "vibrational meditation" carries you effortlessly into bliss and stillness...

 

What are the nature and benefits of Kirtan/Chanting?

The ancient language of Sanskrit is a vibrational language revealed to the Masters who sat in deep meditation and heard the vibrational sounds of the Sanskrit alphabet moving through the psychic energy channels in the body.   Gitanjali offers Kirtan for the upliftment of society and connection to Universal Self. Their music is considered Bhakti yoga, an expression of the Divine Love and Union, which permeates all things..

Yoga to Celebrate the Advent Season

Restorative Yoga, Meditation and Chanting with Romy and Judy

Donation Class*

"Advent" is from the Latin word adventus which signifies "coming." Advent is a season of spiritual preparation, reflection, cheer, and anticipation of the Nativity. Let’s use our yoga practice to create and maintain a sense of peace that really should define this season of gratitude, hope and rebirth. Join us for a restorative practice with gentle asana (postures), pranayama (breathing), relaxation, reflection, singing, prayer and meditation, incorporating the advent themes of hope, peace, love and joy. Take some time to prepare your body, mind and heart for the celebration as we incorporate the yogic principle of “Santosha” (contentment) and “Tapas” (self discipline) in our practice.

*Proceeds will go to the Angel Tree Program of Prison Fellowship believes that no life is beyond the reach of God's power. Through partnership with the local church and other nonprofit organizations, we work together to meet the spiritual, physical, and personal needs of prisoners and their families.

Tulum Retreat

 

Located about 2 hours south of Cancun, in the Riviera Maya, Tulum is truly a piece of paradise tucked away between the clear blue ocean and the emerald green tropical forests. We spent 6 days/5 nights at Amansala, with yoga classes, lounging on semi-private beaches, biking, kayaking, snorkeling and trips to the Mayan ruins. Shoes are optional at this beachside eco-chic hotel. Stone and wood rooms created a quiet and relaxing atmosphere. Beginning and ending the day with a quiet stroll on the white sandy beaches, this yoga vacation exceeded expectations.
