The art of kirtan is the sacred practice of repeating the names of god. It is the collective practice of praising all aspects of the divine through repetition, melody, rhythm, and song. Kirtan is a participatory practice in which a concert becomes an event of worship, of community gathering and connection, and an experience of group meditation.
Krishna Das (KD) is one of the artists who have popularized this sacred practice in the modern world. His 16 albums have planted the seeds of kirtan around the world. KD has shared this music at the Grammy Awards, is the subject of the film One Track Heart: The Story of Krishna Das and the author of Chants of a Lifetime: Searching for a Heart of Gold.

Felicia Tomasko has spent more of her life practicing Yoga and Ayurveda than not. She first became introduced to the teachings through the writings of the Transcendentalists, through meditation, and using asana to cross-train for her practice of cross-country running. Between beginning her commitment to Yoga and Ayurveda and today, she earned degrees in environmental biology and anthropology and nursing, and certifications in the practice and teaching of yoga, yoga therapy, and Ayurveda while working in fields including cognitive neuroscience and plant biochemistry. Her commitment to writing is at least as long as her commitment to yoga. Working on everything related to the written word from newspapers to magazines to websites to books, Felicia has been writing and editing professionally since college. In order to feel like a teenager again, Felicia has pulled out her running shoes for regular interval sessions throughout Southern California. Since the very first issue of LA YOGA, Felicia has been part of the team and the growth and development of the Bliss Network.
