Kirtan is the meditative group practice of Bhakti Yoga, the devotional branch of yoga. Through call and response chanting one is connected to the breath, the mind is quieted, and the heart is opened. There is a strength and power when we come together as one voice in the community to chant. The chants and melodies are simple and no experience or spiritual inclination is required.

Noah was called to the path of Bhakti Yoga 11 years ago while on the first of many trips to India. It was along the banks of the Ganges that he felt a powerful feeling of “coming home” while chanting the ancient Sanskrit mantras. From that experience, his love for yoga and devotional call and response chanting grew, making him a regular participant in weekly gatherings around the city.

Noah leads kirtan in yoga studios around New York City and is a regular member of Kirtan Rabbi, a Hebrew kirtan group, as well as Ananda Rasa, a traditional Hindu raga mixed with reggae kirtan group.

He has recorded with several kirtan artists including Krishna Das. As well as a musician, Noah is a sculptor in metal, creating art inspired by his love of yoga and chanting
