Bhakti Fest presents the internationally acclaimed Kirtaniyas LIVE in concert at the Prakash Yoga Ashram in Tapovan, Rishikesh on Tuesday, October 4th at 6 pm!

EXCLUSIVE PERFORMANCE!

Our last kirtan event with the kirtaniyas at the Anand Prakash Ashram was so blissful we are happy to announce that Vijay Krsna from the Kirtaniyas will be returning! Join us for an evening of ecstatic chanting, dancing, and chai!

California-based Kirtaniyas are a global collective of musicians, producers, and dancers. These energetic, multitalented artists grew up in a Vedic culture of song, dance, philosophy and devotion between ashrams and temples both in India and the western world.

Vijay Krsna, band leader, studied devotional Indian folk music known as “Kirtan” in the sacred village of Vrindavana, India. This rare traditional art form is an ancient call-and-response mantra chanting practice, that originated in the Indian subcontinent over 5000 years ago. Joined together with his musically gifted wife Sarasvati, soulful vocalist Rasika and drummer Nitai, Vijay formed the Kirtaniyas in 2009. They have since expanded the group, sometimes performing with up to 12 members on stage. They have traveled the world to over 15 countries infusing new life to these ancient chants with youthful spirit and energy.

What are the people saying?

What – laughing in yoga? An enthusiastic YES!!! When does one get the opportunity to study with a Himalayan Yoga Master from the comfort of your own home? Where can one meet wonderful souls throughout the world united by a desire to learn and grow? Look no further than here! Akhanda Yoga has made this possible through their Virtual YTT200 course. Friday night and reasonably scheduled weekend classes allowed attending this class while working my regular position. I enjoyed the philosophy and holistic lifestyle approach Vishva-ji and his team embrace.

As I expanded in this course, my ability to thrive in COVID-19 chaos increased. I was more calm because of pranayama and asana practice, had solutions appear through meditation and became more centered and grounded through sounding and yogic philosophy. The combination of zoom classes from excellent teachers around the world, pre-recorded classes, reading and small group sessions provide a meaningful, broad based experience, perhaps a bit more broad if one attended in an ashram. Our cohort continues to meet through WhatsApp to celebrate our growth and continue our practice. As I speak with other yoga students and teachers, they commented Akhanda’s YTT200 level offers more dimensions than many other programs. Oh, and did I mention that laughter is included and celebrated? Highly recommend!!

What a life-transforming experience! The holistic side of Akhanda Yoga has really spoken to me and I am now a confident, enthusiastic Yoga teacher who is proud to carry its wisdom to the world! I really appreciate this learning from all of the wonderful and knowledgeable teachers/yogis. The program was planned at the perfect pace and if there is any difficulty, teachers and supporters were there to fully assist us with kindness and open heart.

Thank you, Akhanda Yoga.

 Yogarishi Vishvketu and his team at Akhanda Yoga bring yoga back to its roots. It was so wonderful to find this and such an authentic style of teaching. Attention is given to the five principles being Asanas, pranayama, mantra, meditation and Vedic philosophy. I felt completely supported by the team throughout the process and continue to feel this support. I do not hesitate to recommend this school very highly. Warm, authentic and highly professional environment.
