You will also have the opportunity to join in with the daily ashram events, such as Ariti, Meditation, Yoga Philosophy, Vedic Fire Ceremony & Kirtan.
£230 Per person based on two people sharing a twin room. Included in your stay are delicious vegetarian meals.

My teaching was born out of my love for yoga and the beautiful and profound personal journey I found myself on. I simply wanted to keep learning and keep sharing the knowledge with as many people as I could. I enjoy teaching people of all ages and abilities as much as I love the challenges that I continue to discover in my own personal practice. It is my hope that through my classes people will also experience the deep joy, serenity and healing that yoga has offered for me.

An Evening of Sacred Chant and Healing Spirit Songs
with Jaya Lakshmi
DateSunday 17th September
WithJaya Lakshmi
and special guest musicians TBA
InformationJaya Lakshmi is a well-loved US-based (Oregon/Hawaii) kirtan leader and songwriter who helped establish the modern chant movement in the west, performing since 1992. She is a deep and authentic presence that creates an opening for light transmission and healing through her music.

She began leading kirtan and writing her own devotional songs in the early 1990′s shortly after receiving harinam initiation from Srila Govinda Maharaj, a great Vaisnava saint from West Bengal, India. She went on to create 4 solo chant albums on Sequoia Records as well as became the lead singer of the band Lost at Last. In 2010 she joined forces with Ananda Yogiji. In just over 6 years together, they have released 11 mantra albums on Sounds True, Spirit Voyage and independently.
Connected to a lineage of pure 'bhakti' yoga, Jaya Lakshmi reminds us of the nectarian sweetness of our true devotional nature and the bliss of surrendering to the Divine. Her songs summon courage and faith and reveal the alchemy of personal transformation. She invites us to celebrate our ability to turn pain to peace, fear to love, and darkness to light by facing and embracing what we resist, and how we can shift our perspective by the power of our will. A mother and dedicated yogi, she has devoted much of her life to creating sacred music and healing others through the divine sound current.

After years of touring the West Coast USA and Hawaii, Jaya Lakshmi is coming to Europe as a solo artist to share her music and devotional spirit in public performances in London, Glastonbury, Barcelona and Ibiza this fall.
