Kirtan (keer-tan) is a form of singing or chanting, which is part of the Bhakti path of yoga. It can be a meditative and joyous experience that anyone can benefit from, you don’t need to be a singer to participate!
We will sing in call-and-response (we will sing a line, and invite you to sing it back to us) and will be accompanied by beautiful acoustic harmonium and dolac and djembe drums. The rhythm will build over several minutes, and then we will return to a place of stillness allowing us to enjoy the soothing effects of the sound on the body and mind.
Many people find medicinal affects accompany this practice. Some people can find their hearts opening in joy, people can feel soothed and relaxed, some can even feel like dancing! Kirtan can still a busy mind and be a beautiful break from everyday life; a wonderful gift to give yourself.

Kīrtanakārāh (makers or doers of Kirtan) is a collaboration between Marnie and Patricia, who met in 2019 during their kirtan leader training with the esteemed Nikki Slade. It offers Kirtan sessions across the South East and London.
Marnie Padmai came across this inspirational practice when practicing yoga 15 years ago. She fell in love with the soothing, joyous, healing feeling it gave her, and has been practicing ever since. She is humbled to be sharing kirtan to benefit others as it has benefited her.
Patricia Carlota is a Kirtan Leader and Gong Practitioner passionate about the transformative power of sound. The intention of her practice is to create a sacred space to nourish the connection to our heart and empower compassionate living.
