Nothing quite opens the heart On a Yoga Retreat or Yogaholiday than Kirtan or Bhajan Chanting Mantras is well known for drilling the Chatteringmind and Openingtheheart Kirtan takes that to another level. It's more Emotional and more of a Community or Sangha experience You will often see people crying at Kirtan , releasing emotions , as their hearts open to previously contstrained emotions and Feelings I love leading Kitran just as much as I look pushing athletic guys through tough core exercises Here I am leading a Kirtan in Crete in 2007 where I was reaching at Yogaplus The course was two weeks of Mantra Pranayama Meditation
