In recent years kirtan chanting has exploded in popularity alongside yoga’s rise to acclaim; it increases vitality, comforts the soul, and expands meditation. It is a joyful practice that calms the mind and opens and purifies the heart. Prema Hara’s beautiful soulful music will provide a peaceful yet inspiring mood to support the class, transforming the asana practice into a moving meditation. Deep relaxation at the end of class will be enhanced by a soothing lullaby.

“You will be swept away by their splendid sounds into that space of
pure peace and light.” ~ Integral Yoga Institute, New York

About Prema Hara…

“One of the greatest new kirtan groups today… Prema Hara makes some of the sweetest yoga music you’ll ever hear. Their new album, Tears of Love, is overflowing with the nectar of their devotion.“ – Spirit Voyage

Kamaniya and Keshavacharya are kirtan gypsies, touring internationally as the sacred music duo Prema Hara. Attracted by Bhakti Yoga, the path of devotion, both have spent many years living in ashrams, searching for the divine through
devotional service and singing. Seeing so many people’s hearts transformed through the power of chanting sacred mantras, they were inspired to commit their lives to sharing the universal practice of kirtan with the world. Prema Hara has toured extensively throughout the USA and Europe, quickly gaining recognition as one of the West’s most prominent mantra music bands. Hot off the Bhakti Fest mainstage and a two month Europe tour, Prema Hara is eager to return to sing with us for their only Canton event of 2012! Catch them while you can…
