Chant Artist and Sound Healer
With a deep commitment to opening hearts and minds through the power of sound, Bhavani uniquely blends sacred mantras from many cultures and spiritual beliefs. Using her original kirtan/indie/chill/electro style. She blends sacred prayers from all spiritual beliefs with sonic sounds of crystal bowls, African drums, electronic keyboards, harmonium and soulful harmonies, uplifting and healing the soul. At the age of two, she told her parents and almost everyone she met, that when she grows up she will be a missionary. Bhavani’s mission is giving people the EXPERIENCE OF UNITY, through her interactive musical offering.
Bhavani currently resides in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and travels worldwide offering music at Festivals, Yoga Conferences, Yoga Studios, teaches private Yoga & Workshops, and teaches Thai Yoga Massage and Reiki. Bhavani has been on her yoga and music journey for 20 years, leading Kirtan for 4 years.
She has released 3 albums: Chakra Mantra, her indie offering featuring sonic healing and mantras. Bhaktirupa, The Devotion Explosion; Kirtan album with White Swan Records. Yoga Music Mantras & Chants Vol. 2: featuring songs by Deva Premal & Miten, Sean Johnson, David Newman and more.
Bhavani’s yoga journey began at the age of 17, when she had an eye opening experience during meditation. This prompted her to start a lifelong in-depth study of Indian culture and philosophy. For the past 20 years she has been on a path of self-inquiry and transformation. Through one-on-one study with multiple Yoga Masters and her consistent practice, she has acquired tools to help guide others on the life path towards self discovery. Bhavani is passionate and devoted to assisting her students by offering them many tools, knowledge, inspiration, motivation, experiences and the confidence needed to transform their lives. Bhavani loves to spend a lot of time outdoors, dancing around the house, playing music and monkeying around with her three beautiful children, Pearl, Skyler and Rheya.
