Since our opening in 2008, Dragonfly has hosted numerous Kirtan bands and artists from WAH! to The Hanumen, from Girish to Shantala, from John de Kadt to Yungchen Lhamo, and Brenda McMorrow to Prema Hara. Please join us to chant and be the Bliss that you are meant to be!
Live Music, Yoga, & Chant Immersion with Girish
*Yoga with Katie*
Sunday, March 31st, 4-5pm Yoga, 5-5:15 Tea, & 5:15-6:30 pm chant
We have created a hybrid event where you get the best of both worlds: A fun and energizing yoga practice with Katie, accompanied by Girish’s live music, a beautiful savasana lullaby, a cup of yummy chai tea, all followed by an hour of blissful chanting and lessons on the Sanskrit mantras with Girish.
Live Music and Yoga
Experience the magic of live music – powerful Sanskrit chants set to modern melodies – while you practice yoga… Let go and let your yoga flow through the beats and rhythms of Girish’s soul stirring tunes. Class ends with a Sanskrit lullaby during savasana followed by one call and response chant. This is a truly magical and incredible musical and yoga experience that allows you to go deeper into your practice and your body.
After practice, enjoy a complimentary cup of tea and settle in for the chanting!
Girish Chant Workshop
After flowing through your practice to live music, the experience of chanting will be truly wonderful. This experience is perfect for anyone seeking to bring the bliss of Sanskrit chanting into daily life or to deepen an existing chanting practice, but it is also appropriate for beginners who are curious about chanting. You’ll explore several of the most powerful Sanskrit mantras and Girish will offer practical guidance on integrating them into your yoga, meditation, or pranayama practice. No previous experience necessary!
