Kirtan Revisited

I got a very nice email this evening from Dharmashakti, a yoga instructor and studio owner in Albuquerque, New Mexico, thanking me for some photos I sent him. He and his partner Christian were traveling cross country a few weeks back and holding kirtans (call-and-response singing events) at various studios. One of their stops was at tapas yoga shala in Davenport, where I had a chance to photograph this kirtan.

It was a fascinating experience. And Dharmashakti has some of my photos on the Web site of his new studio, Nob Hill Yoga, slated for an August 1 grand opening.

If you’re not familiar with kirtans (also called Bhakti Yoga), it is about devotion to yourself, and he explains it very well here. To get a sense of what a kirtan is like, check out this music slideshow from the one hosted by tapas.
