“A mantra can be thought of as a sonic embodiment of the supreme being who, through grace, takes infinite recognizable forms.” - Jai Uttal
The tradition of kirtan—devotional chanting—is a way to access universal positive qualities such as love, courage, compassion. Through chanting, we focus our thoughts and emotions into a practice honoring and connecting with the Divine. Because vibration is the substance of all things, including our bodies and mind-stuff (chittam), chanting influences us in many beneficial ways. Monica’s kirtans are ecstatic and communal, introspective and devotional. She'll be joined by fabulous musicians Candace Calms on voice & viola, Carlos Santo on voice & bass and John Oyzon on voice & percussion!
Join us for a SuperSonic Lift-off into Love, Gratitude & Empowerment!!
Monica Page Subia (SatPurusha), E-RYT-500,
Yoga Instructor & Teacher Trainer, Kirtan Artist
Monica has been chanting Divine names in various forms, throughout her life.
In 2003, through her yoga practice and teacher training at Svaha Yoga Shala in Amsterdam, she was introduced to Kirtan and Bhajans in Sanskrit and Hindi. She immediately fell into ecstatic Love with these forms of chant and has been chanting nonstop ever since. When she moved to Tempe, AZ in 2009, her amazing teachers and friends from Svaha, Shukram Das and Gösta (Shunya) van Dam, instructed her to chant as often as possible. She has therefore participated in and led countless Kirtan and live music yoga events throughout the Phoenix area. She has performed at Bhakti and Shakti Fest with Sirgun Kaur and Masood Ali Khan and locally, with Girish. She appears on Masood’s CD “Hang with Angels”. She regularly plays with Sirgun and the Band of Now. Chanting and yoga have miraculously transformed her life and she is very grateful to be sharing this miracle with others!
