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.

Chanting from the heart

Monday 6th July 2015

7pm - 8:30pm


Join me on Monday 6th July for the blissful practice of Kirtan or chanting from the heart. Chanting is the yoga of sound. Kirtan connects us to the inner Self our true nature within which is whole and free. As we chant together the sweet vibrations of the chant move through us and we experience an ecstatic state of oneness.

This session is for everyone; and for those who find meditation a challenge this is the perfect practice for you to calm your mind into stillness.

No previous experience required and you don't have to be a singer to chant!

I will be sharing chants on the night from my brand new double album kirtan CD 'Epiphany' and it will be available to purchase.

Anahata: the unstruck sound: An urban chanting and yoga retreat


Anna Ashby and Nikki Slade

Sunday 19th July, 10am - 4.30pm

“Listen to the sound of the city. Listen to the sound of your neighbour’s voice, or of the wild geese honking skyward. Listen to any sound or silence at all without interpreting it, and the anahata will be heard of the Void that is the ground of being, and the world that is the body of being, the Silence and the Syllable.”— Joseph Campbell, Myths to Live By

Triyoga once again offers the well-loved ‘urban retreat’, where you can experience the benefits of a retreat in the midst of daily life. The day will include traditional yoga practices such as active and restorative yoga as well as chanting and meditation, uniquely woven together by two of triyoga’s most well-respected teachers, Anna Ashby and Nikki Slade. The yoga practices and focused environment of ‘retreat’ provide the space for introspection, contemplation, rejuvenation and healing.

The retreat focuses on anahata, which not only refers to the heart chakra, but when translated and interpreted means the sound that is not made by any two things striking together. The question then arises, “What is the sound not made?” Joseph Campbell beautifully describes it as, “…that of primal energy of which the universe itself is a manifestation.”

The retreat brings attention to the healing vibration of pure being through mantra and conscious movement which can draw forth the latent power within each one of us reaffirming the interconnection of life.

During this one day immersion, a transformative energy builds that can offer insight, clarity and renewed perception about life as lived and being in a modern world.
Dates: Sunday 19th July 2015.

Times: 10:00 am - 4:30pm.

Fees: £85 including lunch.

Venue: Triyoga Camden. 57 Jamestown  Road, London NW1 7DB


Booking: Book through Triyoga.
