Bhajans with Shankari
Blissful Bhajans is a great way to explore the path of Bhakti Yoga. I had a good idea that this was a powerful pull in my yogic journey prior to coming, but this sacred time away, led by the gifted yogi and kirtanista Shankari Bowmaster, far exceeded my expectations. Her wisdom, guidance, love, and presence was an invaluable gift that I will carry with me forever. — Sharon Hughes Taylor
Shankari took me to another dimension of chanting with music and spirituality.
Shankari is spirit in music.
I liked the balance of group sharing, teaching Yoga concepts, and practice.
This small workshop provided safety for self-expression and building self-confidence.
I knew Shankari would be the best instructor to learn chanting from! It was definitely what I came for and more!
