Chakra: The Inside Story (online)
With Hansa and Indukanta Udasin
October 17 - 25, 2020
Each of us is an expression of Source.
What does this mean? How did Source become me, or you? Vibration. Yes, according to Shaivism, Samkhya philosophy, and subtle body theory, you are the expansion of the vibrations of the great Lord, Paramasiva.
How do we know the vibrations of Spirit? From the Samskrit alphabet!
This workshop is an exploration of the alphabet from its initial vibration of ‘a’ to the last letter, ‘h.’ In our study of the letters, we will examine selected pulsing dynamics of the letters, such as:
- an expression of Spirit, in samskrit, tattva,
- a movement also known as a vritti, which effects the mental body,
- and, an energy point on the physical body, the bahya matrika and/or a marma point, the alphabet of the body.
Each vibration is the essence of a petal surrounding a chakra. After discussing the essence of each letter, we will group them according to their chakra. Our end goal is to understand how the pulsing vibrations define the inner essence of chakra, not just the external manifestation most frequently taught. Plus, how do we use this information to support our yoga practice. For yoga therapists, how do we use this tool to enhance our work?
Be prepared to dive into a paradigm shift. For us this study has been an opening of new experiences to ‘I’ as Source.

Indukanta as been dedicated to the Kripalu lineage for over 35 years and that has inspired her to share her passion of yoga as a lifestyle and the music and art as sadhana. Trained as a classical flautist, she was among the first yogāsana teachers in the greater Cleveland area where she established a support network for all local yoga teachers. While studying music in India, a profound calling to learn more about the subtle vibrational aspects of sound and its effects on body-mind awoke. A pivotal point in her life was moving to Kripalu Center in Lenox, MA to be Director of the Spiritual Lifestyle Program and teaching other programs. A calling for more personal sadhana, study and research was answered with the opportunity to live, practice and study in Kayavarohan. Indukanta has now returned to guiding an occasional yogāsana class, leading kirtans and, teaching philosophical and practical aspects…
