Kirtan is a community-based call and response singing practice that lives in the heart of Bhakti, the yoga of love and devotion. This program, Adam’s first time at Heart of the Village Yoga, will offer a vibrant experiential introduction to some of the rich and varied flavors of the Bhakti Yoga tradition of North India. We’ll sing together, share stories and core teachings, and explore original sacred texts and their modern-day commentaries.

These workshops are perennial favorites and leave participants feeling enlivened, grounded and inspired by the Bhakti practice and the shared community experience. We are thrilled to welcome Adam to Southern Vermont and to Heart of the Village Yoga.

Everyone is welcome, no prior experience is necessary. Let's sing together and greet the holiday season together with open hearts.

Adam Bauer travels the globe sharing the heart-expanding beauty of kirtan, healing touch, the I Ching, and transformational conversation. Adam spent years playing bass with kirtan pioneer Krishna Das, and later with Bhakti Yoga legend Shyamdas, both of whom nourished his love of sacred sound and the yoga of devotion. He has released three critically-acclaimed records: Shyam Lila debuted on Mantralogy Records in 2014, Wonderville was released in 2017, and Return to the Sacred in 2020. Adam sings & offers workshops, programs, & healing sessions worldwide, enchanting and inspiring listeners with his deep, soulful voice and presence wherever he goes.

Jo Kirsch and Bob Speck SOLD OUT
November 30 - December 7, 2022
From $1990 per person double occupancy

Join us for a week of yoga and adventure in beautiful Costa Rica. Return to your natural state of balance, harmony and peace, while practicing yoga in this tranquil and rejuvenating setting. We'll stay at the RipJack Inn, a Boutique Hotel located just 245 feet from the beach in Playa Grande, Costa Rica. RipJack Inn has a beautiful Yoga Shala, a tree top restaurant with some of the best food in the country, swimming pools and more. Playa Grande is a National Park that protects the Leatherback Turtle with miles of pristine beaches along the Pacific Ocean.

This is a wonderful opportunity to nurture your body, mind and soul with morning meditation, revitalizing and balancing yoga classes, delicious food, and great company. There will be plenty of free time daily to relax and play, and two group excursions are planned to explore the beautiful beaches and gorgeous ocean of Playa Grande. If you have a partner or a family member who would love a tropical vacation, but is not "into yoga”, that's okay too. There is plenty to explore and lots of time to enjoy the beach and the surrounding area. Or, maybe this is the time they can get "turned on" to the practices, which will be accessible to Every Body (and always optional)!
