Kirtan Workshop – The song of the soul
Kirtan means “repeat.” It is also known as a specific traditional way of chanting mantras: Sanskrit words full of meaning with the aim of improving our consciousness and strengthening the connection with our inner Self. Everything is vibration and everything is connected, but we live such frenetic lives that we often forget to feel that. Through the repetition of specific sounds we connect to a deeper layer and changes in perception can occur, as well as the opening of an emotional and intuitive channel. Another powerful effect of Kirtan is that it connects us with the emptiness of the mind, therefore, there will be a general feeling of relaxation and relief from stress. Savitri will guide you through a journey between Indian tradition and mythology. You will be able to sing, learn about mythology and especially connect yourself on a deep level. This activity is open to everyone, no previous singing experience is required.

Sonia: Sāvitrī is the spiritual name of Sonia Lindia, yoga teacher at the SincroniaYoga center.

A year ago he had a karmic and revealing encounter in India with her teacher Om Baba. From that moment her relationship with meditation was strengthened, and the chanting of mantra began to be a daily self-practice that led to the composition of some of the songs she will play.
