Kirtan Training - Level One (Basic Skills)

Joyspace (map)

Kirtan Training will present basic skills for voice, harmonium, kartals and an introduction to mrdanga (drum). The intention will be to understand the roles of each instrument and how they cooperate to create different moods while chanting. We will also explore the origins of kirtan from Bhakti Yoga, both historically and philosophically.

When: September 25 to November 27
Monday nights from 6:30pm to 8:15pm
(except Thanksgiving weekend)

Registration: To register, please send us an email at hello@kirtanvancouver.com

Kirtan Training will be 9 classes. In order to give the needed amount of attention to each student, there are only 9 spots available. To enroll, each student must be willing to attend all 9 classes. If you are not able to do so but would still like to enroll in this training, please send us an email to discuss. Register soon before the class is full!

The instructors for Kirtan Training are Krishna Prana, Brihat, Nitai and Hari. Each have many years experience playing all the traditional kirtan instruments. They look forward to personally helping you develop your kirtan skills.

Unity Yoga Teahouse (map)

EnChant is a bi-weekly community gathering of open-minded souls for call and response chanting, also known as Kirtan.

The practice of Kirtan, or Mantra Meditation, is a type of yoga which bestows many mind-calming benefits. For many, the practice has a powerful heart-opening effect and it is best understood through direct experience. Our voices are accompanied by traditional instruments such as the Harmonium, Mridanga (drum), and Kartals (hand cymbals). 

Everyone is encouraged to participate at the level they feel comfortable. Although many participants prefer floor seating on the cushions provided, chairs are also available on site. 

Doors open at 6pm with herbal tea and cookies and we begin Kirtan at 6:30. A delicious plant-based meal is served afterwards to conclude the evening. 

As Kirtan Vancouver is a non-profit organization, all donations are used for further events. Nobody is turned away for lack of funds and volunteer opportunities may be available.
