An Evening of Kirtan with Jai Uttal at Indigo Yoga in Walnut Creek June 30th


An Evening of Kirtan with Jai Uttal:

Indigo Yoga
1512 Palos Verdes Mall
Saturday, June 30th, 2018

Indigo Yoga & Pilates of Walnut Creek is honored and delighted to host Grammy-nominated Kirtan sensation Jai Uttal for an evening of sacred music and chanting on Saturday, June 30th!

Jai has been leading Kirtans worldwide for nearly 50 years. Kirtan is an ancient practice of call and response chanting that originated in India many centuries ago. During Kirtan, the breath is engaged, the mind is calmed and focused on words of repetition, the heart is lifted with the music, and the need for community is met. “These ancient chants,” writes Jai “contain a transformative power and healing energy. By singing these prayers we join a stream of consciousness and devotion that has been flowing for centuries.”
