"We cannot stop the winter or the summer from coming. We cannot stop the spring or the fall or make them other than they are. They are gifts from the universe that we cannot refuse. But we can choose what we will contribute to life when each arrives." ---
Spring is the beginning of a new cycle, a time for planting new seeds in anticipation of a bountiful harvest in summer and fall. Whether the seeds are for flowers or food, the seeds journey is always one of awakening and growing according to its divine blueprint deep within. For us as human beings spring is also a time of awakening – to new or remembered desires and dreams – given to us to manifest so we may bring more joy and light into our lives, families and communities.
Kirtan is a very different kind of music. Based on ancient chants, it has the ability to quiet the mind, sooth the soul and sometimes raise the rafters with joy!
There will be a mix of meditative and energizing mantras and chants, some in Sanskrit and some in English.
Just think sing-along.
Chanting led by nature empath and planetary sound weaver Danielea Castell, co-hosted with Tanya Garland.
Kirtan is non-denominational, the Universal language of Spirit, the song of the Soul.
No singing experience is required and lyric sheets will be available. Typically everyone sits on the floor, but I will have chairs available to ensure comfort.

What is Chair Yoga?
Chair yoga is a general term for practices that modify yoga poses so that they can be done while seated in a chair. These modifications make yoga accessible to people who cannot stand or lack the mobility to move easily from standing to seated to supine positions. Many of the basic body mechanics of the individual postures are retained, no matter the stance of the practitioner. While seated on chairs, students can do versions of twists, hip stretches, forward bends, and mild backbends. In addition to a good stretch, chair yoga participants can also enjoy other health benefits of yoga, including improved muscle tone, better breathing habits, reduction of stress, better sleep, and a sense of well-being.
Who Can Do Chair Yoga?
Those of you with disabilities, weight challenges, inflexibility, or who just cannot get on the floor for whatever reason can benefit from -yoga on a chair. The chair replaces the yoga mat and becomes an extension of your body allowing you to take full advantage of yoga’s amazing fitness and health potential. Office workers can also take advantage of chair yoga's adaptations to sneak in some stretches at work
