Hari-kirtana das has had a life-long interest in yoga, beginning his study of asana, meditation, and yoga philosophy as a teenager and spending his early twenties living in yoga ashrams and intentional spiritual communities. He expanded his yoga practice at the Jivamukti Yoga School in New York City in 2007 and became a certified Jivamukti Yoga teacher in 2009. His classes combine challenging poses sequenced at an invigorating pace with detailed instruction on how to move into your fullest expression of the poses (some of which you might not have realized you can do). His classes always feature an eclectic and uplifting music mix. Hari-kirtana is registered with the Yoga Alliance (E-RYT 200, RYT 500), holds an 800-hour Jivamukti Yoga teaching certification, speaks regularly at colleges and universities on the relationship of classical yoga philosophy to contemporary life, and teaches classes, workshops, and yoga teacher training modules at Flow and throughout the mid-Atlantic region.
Hari's Teaching Style: In Hari's Jivamukti Yoga classes you'll experience the practice of yoga as a spiritual discipline. He blends a time-honored understanding of the goal of yoga with an innovative and energetic practice to help us reach that goal. Sanskrit chanting, yoga philosophy, deep relaxation and meditation are all integrated into his classes. Hari-kirtana teaches to an uplifting music mix of traditional kirtan chants and modern music tracks, encourages a devotional orientation to asana practice, and uses hands-on adjustments as an essential teaching technique. More than anything else, his classes are personal and fun. The result is a feeling of physical, emotional, and spiritual completeness.
