Allison and Girish at Namas Day 2013

He’s connected locally.
Allison Sobel, local yoga teacher, and Girish have been working together for years; coordinating workshops, manifesting retreats and sharing their talents. Our April Namas Day event isn’t the first time these two have worked together.  Music, mantra and so much more has been cultivated between these two for quite some time.

Wow.
Girish is a Hindu name which means “lord of the Mountains” in Sanskrit.

We all start somewhere.
When Girish was eight years old, his parents gave him a little red snare drum as a bargaining tool to stop him from banging on everything else in the house.

He’s a monk.
Girsh lived in an ashram in the Tennessee Smoky Mountains for 5 years and took the vows of a monk before exploring the Nada Yoga tradition (yoga of sound current), which emphasized the spiritual import of music.

He’s a writer.
Girish is the author of a book coming out this year called, “Music and Mantras: The Yoga of Mindful Singing for Health, Happiness, Peace & Prosperity.”

He makes the most beatiful music.
Girish performs his wildly popular rendition of Diamonds in the Sun at Bhakti Fest.
