New to Kirtan? Here's what you can expect:
Derived from a Sanskrit root meaning to call, recite, praise, or glorify. Kirtan is therefore viewed as exceptionally powerful when practiced through singing and music which Phil will be leading at 8:30pm.

There is no compass, no map for this moment in time. We are indeed in uncharted territory and so it is an opportunity for us to write the new story and to explore the depths of the unkown. We have a chance to transcend what we think we know, what is “normal” and go into the wilderness of ourselves and our communal experience and create and forge new paths, understanding and ways of being. We are the pioneers of this moment. I am excited and curious to boldy and vulnerably go on this journey of discovery altogether. May we find space in these classes to “feel all the feels” and find community within our selves and each other. Community care is self care.
All my love and thanks for your presence here,
Kundalini Yoga is an ancient and new system that uses dynamic breathwork, physical postures, mantra, mudra (hand positions), and meditation to harness the creative potential and energy of your mind, body and spirit. It will strengthen the nervous system and optimize the glandular, digestive, reproductive, cardiovascular and muscol-skeletal system. It is a system that takes care of and benefits the whole person, that benefits all ages, stages and fitness abilities.
No spirituality or previous experience of practicing yoga is necessary. Kundalini meets you where you are at.
