Kirtan is the practice of singing or chanting ancient Sanskrit mantras, usually in call and response form.
It is not a performance, but rather a union or merging of individuals into an energetic whole. It can be high energy, or slow and meditative.
Through our voices, intention and energy we move out of the head and into the heart space, cultivating love, awareness and presence.
No experience necessary! Come for the whole time, or just drop in.
Cost: Cash donation

Chai and vegan treats available!

GROUNDING INTO AUTUMN WITH
YOGA & AYURVEDA
with Lorinda Childs
SUNDAY 1st MARCH
2:30PM – 4:00PM
Ayurveda is an intricate science of holistic healing that originated in India over 5000 years ago. It uses a mind and body approach to address any imbalances and to maintain wellness. The word Ayurveda translates to ‘the science of life’ and it is a beautiful system that anyone can benefit from by integrating into their life. Ayurveda teaches us that having the knowledge of how to live in flow with nature’s rhythms is vital to our health, and the best medicine there is.
In Autumn the wind blows and the universe becomes shaky. It is important we stabilise our routines, nourish ourselves and become steady at this time of the year.
Join Lorinda for a nourishing afternoon and discover Ayurvedic principles to stay balanced in Autumn. Learn how to adjust your lifestyle, diet and yoga practice to create optimal wellbeing, refreshing sleep, and a strong immune system.
Come along and:
– Experience a grounding and nourishing 1 hour yoga and meditation practice to pacify Vata
– Learn the principles of the science of Ayurveda – the lifestyle and medicinal side of Yoga and Yoga’s sister science
– Leave with a set of skills including health tips, Yogic practices, and daily routines to ensure you stay happy, healthy and in flow this Autumn.
Lorinda is a yoga teacher and very soon to be a qualified Ayurveda Lifestyle Consultant. It is her passion to assist others in achieving optimum health and vitality through the beautiful system of Ayurveda.

Come bathe in pure sounds that will take you on a deeply transformational journey. The Soundshower combines chimes, tibetan bowls, flutes and vocal harmonics.
During a session you will be invited to lie down and immerse in vibrations created by these special instruments. Throughout the “Shower” different instruments are carried around the room and sometimes placed physically on the body. Flutes and voice are used to create a magical musical journey and overtones charge the brain and energize the body.
Being exposed to these healing frequencies enhances a physical, mental and emotional calibration to the human body and energy field. Pure frequencies shift and release stagnant energy and tension accumulated in the body. The Soundshower re-aligns and harmonizes body/mind and is a very relaxing and refreshing experience. It releases stress and anxiety increasing focus clarity and insight.
Avishai Barnatan is a multi instrumentalist, producer and Sound therapist. Since 1990 he has been exploring the nature of sound and its therapeutic qualities as a tool for physical & emotional transformation and healing. Inspired by modern scientific research as well as ancient esoteric and mystic knowledge, he has developed his own approach and style of sound healing . He facilitates group and private sessions for the general public as well as with people of diverse conditions such as various addictions, anxiety and stress-related symptoms, applying different techniques of vibrational therapy. These sessions are a deeply nourishing experience.
Avishai has facilitated “Soundshowers” in festivals such as Wanderlust, Byron Spirit festival, Evolve Yoga fest, Jerusalem Sacred Music Festival and Uplift festival. He regularly holds sessions at venues around Australia.

FRIDAY 29th NOVEMBER
Welcome to our monthly Conscious Cinema at Yogaharta! Every month we will be screening an inspiring, thought-provoking or educational film as a way of bringing our community together and encouraging discussion on important topics!
October’s screening will be ‘2040‘.
2040 is an experiment in fact based dreaming. Concerned about his young daughter’s future, filmmaker Damon Gameau travels the world in search of new approaches and solutions to global warming that exist today and imagines what is possible if they were adopted at scale. The film flips the common narrative of powerlessness on its head and allows us all to see climate change in a new light – as one of our greatest opportunities for bold conscious creativity.
Note: the film will start around 7:45-8pm.
Vegan food and popcorn will be available before and after the film for a donation.
Funds raised will be donated to ‘Seaweed: The Regeneration’ – restoring kelp forests with Marine Permaculture to help reverse the effects of global warming, as demonstrated in the film. You can find out more about the project here.
Bookings: It is a free event, but we would love to know how many people are coming so that we have enough food and drinks, so please book in below!
YIN YOGA WITH AFFIRMATIONS
with Mish Malcolm
SATURDAY 30th NOVEMBER
6:30PM – 8:30PM
Starting the practice with a candle gazing meditation to
help centre and ground you, you will experience a deep
sense of relaxation from the very beginning.
Each yin asana will be paired with a specific affirmation
for you to internally repeat and contemplate throughout
each hold, allowing you to delve deep into this practice
of self inquiry that takes you well beyond the physical and
into the emotional, mental and spiritual layers.
With longer physical holds (7 minutes plus), you will be
supported with props to encourage deeper physical,
emotional, mental and spiritual shifts.
As you merely create shapes with your body, the power of
this practice is the insight you gain and the energetic
blockages you unconsciously release.
