Yoga has its roots within the Veda-s, sanskrit texts that were believed to have been heard by the rsi-s when in deep meditation many thousands of years ago. Chanting these texts is becoming increasingly popular for its many benefits and is often seen as integral to a yoga practice:
Mantras are believed to protect those that chant them
Chanting improves memory and concentration
Chants link breath, mind and emotions in a profound way
The effect of concentration and repetition is a form of meditation and thus relieves stress and promotes clarity
Bea is an experienced chanter and trainee Teacher Trainer. She studies with Radha Sundararajan, a direct student of TKV Desichakar and previous head of chanting at The Krishnamacarya Yoga Mandiram Chennai.
Everyone welcome especially beginners - no singing or musical ability required

Kirtan Chanting for the Community with Nikki Slade
Sunday 6.00 - 7.30 pm
2020 January 26th, February 16th, March 29th, April 26th, May 17th, June 21st, July 19th, August 30th
The Training Centre, 53 Grimwood Road, Twickenham, TW1 1BY
Nikki’s mission is to provide an empowering and safe space that unconditionally encourages individuals to connect with their true inner voice so that they may transcend all limiting beliefs that prevent their authentic and free self-expression.
This is an invitation to open your heart and connect to your vocal power through the yoga of sound. Kirtan (chanting) does for your insides what a yoga asana class does for your physical body. It is the perfect way to dissolve blockages and stress through the vibrations of the sound.
Kirtan is a universal practice that belongs to everyone and is as relevant today as it originally was centuries ago. We will chant together in call and response accompanied by harmonium and drum. The overall experience is like a meditation with voice. You don’t have to sing – your voice is the instrument for you to connect to your inner power. Most importantly expect to have fun! You will leave feeling free, energized, uplifted and joyful for the week ahead.
Dress comfortably, bring water and a cushion to sit on.
