Free Community Events at Quest Yoga Arts: Group chant on June 2, at 7 p.m. and free classes on June 3.

Quest Yoga Arts Yoga Teachers

Quest Yoga Arts in Mount Kisco is welcoming warm weather with two special events that are open to the community: a participatory group chant led by Satya Franche and Ma Kirtan June 2, at 7 p.m., and day of free classes offered by the studio’s graduating teachers on June 3.

Kirtan, which means “chanting,” is a cross-cultural experience that originated in India many centuries ago—formally a part of bhakti yoga, the devotional path of yoga, and nada yoga, the science of sound and vibration, says QYA owner Laura Jensen. “Kirtan is quickly becoming one of the leading forms of participatory world music. Everyone can participate—there are no prerequisites, no special talents or skills, and no religious beliefs or cultural backgrounds that are needed to take part in the kirtan experience. It’s a very powerful and easy way to use sound to help us to connect with the divine energy within both ourselves and our community.” Donations are appreciated.

The Quest Yoga Arts community has grown and flourished since Jensen took over the studio four years ago, and the community class day is in part a celebration of its six graduating teachers who embarked on this journey last November. Anyone is welcome to join these open-level one-hour classes throughout the day. There will be refreshments, a raffle for a premium Jade Mat, and discounts on class cards, yoga clothing and accessories. Sign up for classes at
