Naren is a teacher and musician of India’s sacred music tradition. He was a monk for 14 years in the ashram of Paramahansa Yogananda, immersing himself in yoga, study and selfless service. In 2012, after a life-changing pilgrimage to India, he founded Sangita Yoga to spread the yoga of music through teaching and musical events worldwide. We are thrilled to welcome Naren to the New Earth family!
“Naren is leading Western seekers to India’s sacred music in the most authentic way.” ~Gita Desai, Director of Yoga Unveiled and Raga Unveiled
“Naren is providing a bridge between the Classical Indian ascetic and Western kirtan. His pronunciation, musical refinement and bhav, make him a rich resource for all kirtan lovers to sink into. He is doing the kirtan world a service.” ~Ty Burhoe, tabla player, owner of Tala Records, US Tour Manager for Zakir Hussain
