Bhakti Celebration

December 31, 2019 @ 1:30 pm - January 1, 2020 @ 12:30 am

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.

This Bhakti Celebration is a part of our Yoga of Sound Retreat programme which we recommend should you wish to fully immerse yourself in the event (see separate listing). If you’re unable to allow time for the full 3 day retreat, there are 2 options with or without add on camping.
