Virgo Meets Libra
Before they were The Ascendants, Shankari and Kesheva lived parallel lives.
Their style of music is a fusion of techno trance with overtones of mystical vibes. This music, when merged with Bhakti incantations, yields a state of bliss not experienced before.

What is Kirtan?
Derived from Bhakti Yoga, Kirtan or Bhajans are chants and songs that are set to melodies. This call-and-response style music, is said to invoke the divine.
This devotional performance art is said to quiet and ease the mind.
"Kirtan is a direct path to freeing the authentic voice within.'"

My time with Shankari during her workshop was a gift filled with community, love, and song. She brings an energy of compassion and grace to the practice of Yoga that lingers long after she’s gone. It’s been a special honor to share her music with my Yoga students and I look so forward to the next time I get to share the fruits of this magical Yoga journey with her again.
Sheer Power! My energy is still buzzing two weeks after a Weekend of Bliss Workshop with Shankari. I felt as if she had brought Yogaville to Charlotte, NC. I was mesmerized, I cried, I felt the Kali, Durga, and Lakshmi within me, within the 30+ women of all colors. We were a tribe, singing, breathing, dharma talking, and my favorite, Active Resting! I will continue to support and visit Yogaville on the strength of her goddess essence.

My second trip to Yogaville afforded me a chance to hear Shankari 's story and connection to Swami Satchidananda. Her story brought us all to tears. And my most recent workshop with her to learn about Bhakti Yoga has yet again been life changing. Shankari has a deep love for this practice and shares in a way that touches your soul.

Shankari’s Yoga classes and workshops simply strike through your heart. It opened my eyes to what I can deeply experience inside. During the class she is very observant and gives full attention to the students needs. She is authentic and her teachings come from her own practice and from her heart. It is a pure pleasure to be in her class. I learned a lot and also enjoyed every single moment of her powerful teachings.
