About HariPyari


 HariPyari (aka Naomi Francis) began her journey of chanting through attending various Kirtans in London and on her travels. She then spent New Year 2009 with the divinely wondrous Jai Uttal on his Kirtan Camp and then went on to do a Yoga Teacher Training in Mexico at the Yandara Yoga Institute, where an incredible resident kirtan band (Jaya) made chanting a key element. Since then HariPyari has been running regular and one-off chanting circles (alone and with other devotional musicians) in the UK.

HariPyari also leads Shakti Dance; the yoga of Dance, having trained with Sara Avtar in 2011. This practice has been transformational in her yogic path, inspiring her to delve deeper towards union and supporting her chanting practice. Her yoga and dance practice has also been enriched through training in Yoga Trance Dance with Shiva Rea.

HariPyari has fallen in love with the path of Bhakti Yoga (of which chanting is a key element), and organised the UK’s first ever Bhakti Music Festival (in August 2011), which brought devotional musical practices from various traditions together as one , in the spirit of universal love and devotion.

HariPyari feels incredibly blessed to have found this divine practice and be able to share it with others.
