Full Description

Emotions can either bind you or liberate you. Transform lower emotions into higher expressions through heart opening, uplifting yoga, sound, and meditation practices.

Bhakti Yoga - the yoga of the heart; is a shortcut to go beyond the mind and stresses of daily life, bringing one closer to the essence of the self.

Nada Yoga (Yoga of Sound), singing devotional songs (Kirtan), chanting scales with chakra awareness, and listening for inner sounds, all untie the knots within the mind and body. Fast track your open heart surgery during this weekend of kirtan, sound and bhakti fest!

• Chanting & self expression
• Experience subtle vibrations
• Meditation on primal sounds
• Yoga postures integrated with mantra
• Kirtan (sanskrit chants sung in call and response)
• Akhanda Kirtan (several hours of continuous kirtan)

'You can hear people's hearts in their voice. My job is to open up my own heart so that people can feel theirs and find their heart sound. We can all sing. We all have the ability to find our voice and sing from the heart.' ~ Chakradhyan

About Chakradhyan:
Kiwi-born kirtan king, Chakradhyan, knows how to sing from the heart. Classically trained in the yogic arts at the Bihar School of Yoga in India, Chakradhyan’s experience draws upon a knowledge of the yoga’s of Mantra, Nada (energy vibration) and Bhakti (devotion). Blending these traditions with his own artistry he has developed a moving and unique kirtan style that weaves Satyananda Yoga kirtan with elements of folk rock. Chakradhyan has over 15 years dedicated experience in yoga, mantra and meditation practice. His experience spans the globe and includes 5 years living and teaching in Satyananda yoga ashrams in Australia, India and New Zealand.

Swami Gyan Dharma is a direct disciple of Paramahamsa Satyananda and lived with him in India for over 12 years. He offers the benefit of his many years of personal sadhana training in a very down to earth and practical way. He specializes in mantra, kirtan (chanting) and harmonium, which leaves one feeling deeply inspired.
