Bhakti Celebration with Prosad

Saturday 14th-Sunday 15th March 2020

Bhakti yoga is often referred to as ‘to love for love’s sake’ and can be practiced through Kirtan (chanting mantras to music). This active sound meditation practice helps shift emotional blockages, open your heart and clear your mind.

During the afternoon, guest teacher Prosad will be hosting an introductory workshop on Kirtan, followed by a Hatha yoga class & Yoga Nidra sound journey led by Swami Karma Karuna. You will then be served a delicious homemade vegetarian meal before a 6 hour kirtan celebration begins, with chai and sweets on offer to keep the energy high.
