About Chanting (Kirtan)

Chanting (Kirtan) is a deeply inspiring practice that opens the heart and reveals the experience of our own true nature. It calms the mind and helps us to release unwanted tensions allowing us to experience the freedom within.

We chant in Sanskrit, a language revealed by sages in ancient times as the language of the heart. There is a deep wisdom within the vibration of each chant (Kirtan) and each individual has their own unique experience of grace through the power of chanting.

Chanting (Kirtan) replenishes the soul and unites us with one another and is the perfect way to experience the joy of singing in a group where the focus is on participation rather than performance. Nikki leads these sessions with voice, harmonium and drum. You can join her in singing a range of easy-to-learn devotional and uplifting chants or just bask in the sound of the chants.


Important Note

Nikki's work with sound and resonance can be powerful. Although the effects are often therapeutic and profound, and the space is held and supportive, it is not psychotherapy. Where issues arise, individuals may choose to seek additional support.

One-Off Events


Enter the Spacious Heart

A one day Chanting + Yoga retreat with Anna Ashby and Nikki

Sunday 13th July 2014

10:00am - 4:30pm

Triyoga Soho

The spacious heart is the space within where we are completely free and unconstrained from our conditioning and the pressures of daily living.

It isn't a place that we journey to but rather an exquisite realm within us, that is revealed when we do the practices of yoga. We experience this space as an infinite and expanded reality at the level of vibration, where we naturally know that this is who we truly are.

Anna and Nikki come together once again to offer a unique one-day retreat where the practices of hatha yoga and chanting are woven together in such a way that is seamless, inspiring and draws forth the inner space of the heart.

A concentrated environment of clear intention and practice invokes an energy from within that builds over the course of the day; this energy has the power to open any part of the body and being that is blocked, offering an experience of spaciousness which resonates with joyful contentment. By focusing on the quality and sensation of space itself, and chanting mantras that resonate with the energy of spaciousness, this summertime retreat offers a means to powerfully shift the way we perceive and experience reality, as well as let go of that which blocks the inner experience of the heart.

The morning session includes a variety of active yoga postures designed to create space in the body and mind, while the afternoon session utilises restorative asana. Both sessions weave in chanting drawing upon different mantras, as well as traditional kirtan to 'enter the spacious Heart'.

All levels are welcome.


10:00am - 12:30pm Welcome, Chant + Active Asana Practise

12:30pm - 2:00pm Lunch break

2:00pm - 4:30pm Chant, Restorative Asana + Meditation + Long Savasana

Tuesday 22nd July


10am - 3pm


'Align your vibration to you highest path through chanting'.

In this event Nikki will lead us into connection with our own true nature within through the power of chanting or [ kirtan ]. Chanting is a timeless practice which was first revealed in India centuries ago by sages and saints in deep states of meditation. As a practice It is as relevant  now as it was back then. This is because chanting innately belongs to us all because it is the original or primordial language of the heart. Chanting purifies the blocks to inner freedom; whether mental, emotional, physical or spiritual. Together we will experience the pure bliss of this practice which unlocks a nectarean wellspring of inspiration and joy, that we can then apply to our daily lives and fulfil on what is important to us.

In the second part of the session Nikki will present VIBEFIT leading us into vibrational alignment with our body as an instrument of full self expression which when attuned we discover that we are  much more effective in producing positive results every day.. She will guide us through gentle sounds and movement and playful partner work to build the bridge to more expansive self expression in the world be it in the workplace in meetings, public speaking, relationships with colleagues, bosses or loved ones.


Fees: £25
