Kirtan with Rob and Melissa Lundsgaard in Leavenworth
Jun 20, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm| $20 – $25
We are looking forward to returning to Leavenworth!
Please join us for an evening of devotion and celebration.
Kirtan, call and response chanting, is considered to be the heartbeat of Bhakti Yoga, the yoga of devotion. Rob and Melissa’s kirtan is a fresh take on an ancient practice as their heart-filled songs blend Sanskrit chants with modern, accessible melodies and lush harmonies. Their music has been described as “heart-opening bliss,” “joyful medicine,” and “love and devotion materialized!” Whether you’re new to kirtan or a life-long devotee, husband and wife duo Rob and Melissa create a fun, accessible and sacred space…the perfect setting for a joy-filled celebration of the divine!
Date & Time: June 20th @ 6pm-7:30pm
Cost: $20 advance, $25 at the door
Location: Evolve Local Yoga
About the instructors: Melissa & Rob Lundsgaard
Rob and Melissa are kirtan singers and yoga teachers devoted to sharing the heart-opening practices of Bhakti yoga and kirtan. Kirtan with Rob and Melissa is a fresh take on an ancient practice, where Sanskrit chants blend with modern, accessible melodies and lush harmonies to create an atmosphere that has been described as “joyful medicine,” “heart-opening bliss” and “love and devotion materialized!”
When Rob and Melissa first met, neither of them sang kirtan nor practiced bhakti yoga. By the time they married two years later, love and devotion had become the foundation of their partnership. As these seeds of devotion to each other grew, Rob and Melissa’s bhakti yoga practice blossomed as well, as did the desire to share this with others.
Their music, teachings and storytelling create a space of comfort, discovery, and deep joy. Rob and Melissa are based in the Pacific Northwest, but their music keeps them on the move, sharing kirtan as far away as India, Europe and Central America. When they aren’t on the road, the couple leads regular weekly and monthly kirtans in Seattle, WA. In addition to sharing their music at yoga studios and festivals (Bhakti Fest, Prana Fest, Samsara Fest, Northwest Yoga Feast), they teach Bhakti yoga workshops and modules for teacher training programs, provide live music for yoga classes and lead retreats around the world.
