The Music of Johanna Beekman
Johanna Beekman is a multi-genre recording artist, sacred songstress, yoga teacher, and kirtan artist. She is loved for her rich, soulful voice, radiant spirit, and evocative, inspiring songs.
Johanna’s devotional music springs from her roots in gospel, blue-eyed soul, and world music. Her introduction to the sacred art of chanting began at a young age with Krishna Das and Ram Dass. This has born fruit in recent years as she has dedicated her life to the path of yoga and chant. She created Lullaby Yoga™, a unique fusion of dreamy chants and restorative and yin yoga. She also offers world-inspired gospel-infused kirtan for festivals, yoga studios, and churches across the country.
