Kirtan Concert

February 15th • 7:30-9pm
Westlake Studio
with Beth

Are you intrigued by some of the chanting you hear in yoga classes? Do ever wonder about the power of your voice?You don’t have to be a trained singer to enjoy mantra andyogic chanting. All you need is an open heart and the voice you have.
It may surprise you to know that chanting is yoga too – a powerful, heart-opening practice that provides tools for deep transformation and relaxation. No special skill is needed.

We’ll begin with some background information and an introduction to kirtan (call-and-response yogic chanting). Next, we’ll create a safe environment where all voices are heard together. Then we’ll chant supported by guitar and harmonium and observe silence between the chants. Finally, we’ll close with the sacred sound of OM. Clean your mind. Soften your heart. Uplift your Spirit.

About Beth: Beth is a yoga teacher, kirtan chanter and singer-songwriter who believes that our voices are powerful gifts of transformation. Beth has been exploring mantra since 2003 and has sung harmony at multiple music festivals and kirtan concerts. She has a local kirtan band called Vandanam which means “an offering of prayer.” She and her bandmate, George Shumway, enjoy singing and playing the sacred mantras to inspire, transform, liberate and connect. Beth’s singer-songwriter album will be released in Spring or early Summer of this year.

This offering is open to shower singers and rockstars alike!
Tickets are $10 in advance and at the door.

Introduction to the Chakras:
The Workshop

February 24th • 2-4pm
Westlake Studio
with Carrie Brindza

What are the charkas and what do they have to do with feeling out of balance, burnt out and lost?Pretty much EVERYTHING!

Chakras are our energy centers. The word “chakra” literally means “wheel” or “circle”- referencing the “wheel of life”. There are seven main energy centers (chakras) in the subtle body, each with their ownvibration and meaning.

During the first half of the workshop, Carrie will introduce and breakdown each chakra; giving you a clear understanding of what each is responsible for. Then you will be guided through a gentle yoga flow aimed at unblocking each energy center.
Cost: $30. To register, sign up via KarmaSoft.

Eat. Pray. Practice.
