Nowadays, my path has hugely moved more into Bhakti Yoga (Yoga of the Heart/ Devotion). I have always brought heart oriented themes into my yoga classes however, my new passion is to help open the heart with chanting through the practice of Kirtan. I graduated with Nikki Slade ‘ Learn to Lead Kirtan’ in 2017.
I now offer Kirtan (call and response chanting) regularly in Windsor, Eton & Maidenhead, Berkshire. You can find class details on the Events page.
I bring warmth, joy, humility and love into my kirtan offerings.
What is Kirtan?
Kirtan is the practice of gathering together to sing universal sacred mantras…… It is the Yoga of Sound and is a form of meditation, we use our voices to lead us into a quieter place within…the ancient sounds can bring us back into the deep inner silence that is within us all.
You do not have to be able to sing to chant! Our voices blend together as One….
Kirtan can quieten the mind and expand the heart. It can be calming, healing and uplifting for the soul. It can leave you feeling relaxed, refreshed and re energised. It is one of the main practices of Bhakti Yoga.

Chanting is a significant and mysterious practice. It is the highest nectar, a tonic that fully nourishes our inner being. Chanting opens the heart and makes love flow within usq.Swami Muktananda
Chanting is a way of getting in touch with yourself. It is an opening of the heart and letting go of the mind and thoughts. It deepens the channel of grace and it’s a way of being present in the moment.q Krishna Das
