Maha Kirtan Band
June 28 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$15
Join Florida based kirtan group, Maha, for an evening of kirtan at West Asheville Yoga. Their mantras and melodies are easy to sing along with, and will help you end your week on a high note! Kirtan is a form of Bhakti Yoga, the yoga of devotional love. Chanting mantras set to music is an easy and fun way to quiet your mind, open your heart, and raise your vibration. No musical experience is necessary.
Maha is a kirtan band from Sarasota, Florida, who is touring the northeast this summer. They play kirtan at yoga studios, house kirtans, and yoga festivals- including the Lovelight Festivals in NJ and Baltimore, and the Goddess Rising festival in Orlando. They are working on their first album together as a band, although most of the members can be heard on kirtan leader Cheryl Chaffee’s 2017 CD called Prashamana.
