Mystical Kirtan with Mirabai Moon

Mirabai Moon
Mirabai Moon honed her craft studying vocal improvisation with jazz legend Bobby McFerrin and Rhiannon of Voicestra.  After nearly two decades of songwriting and three original albums, she fell in love with the practice of Kirtan. In 2010, Mirabai devoted herself as a Bhakta, singing sacred chants in Sanskrit, sharing her profound love of the Divine with others through call and response devotional chanting.  Mirabai is a devotee of Sri Guruji and a member of the Yoga Life Society.

Fifteen Years in the Making


This program is inspired by our love of the Yoga Sutras and by the publication of Reverend Jaganath Carrera’s latest book, Inside Patanjali’s Words, a follow-up to his best-selling book, Inside the Yoga Sutras. This source features a fresh new translation and commentary and a word-for-word sutra dictionary, providing a deep dive into the practical wisdom and personality of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. It is available online at Integral Yoga Distribution and Amazon.
