What is kirtan? Kirtan is a participatory form of chanting also known as mantra yoga. There are no postures involved, just simple chants to focus the mind and have fun in a group setting. You do not have to be musical. If you can talk, you can chant. Studies show that chanting and group singing change the chemistry of the brain and dissipate feelings of isolation and depression. Chanting is a calorie-free, drug-free, full body buzz!
