Yantra Wisdom:
Our Creation Story

I was invited to a farewell dinner for a very special friend. As she cooked, guests took turns sitting at the little table in the kitchen; it was covered with a variety of tarot decks. We sat at the table, picked a card and read out loud from the accompanying book. Prompted by the pictures and meanings of the cards, we spoke of our dreams, our aspirations & our past. I was moved to announce in this room full of strangers, “I want to make some cards of my own.” My desire to create a beautiful deck of Yantra cards and share their wisdom, manifested. 


About Chanti

My passion is to inspire students to rediscover their creative self through personal inquiry, effortlessness, ritual, sangha and sadhana. I have been studying and teaching yoga in the Sri Viddya linage since 2005; initiated by one of my teachers Yogarupa Rod Stryker. I completed her Masters degree at Pacifica Graduate Institute in Humanities with an emphasis on Depth Psychology, and am currently pursuing a Ph.D in Jungian Psychology and Archetypal Studies. I believe that creativity is one of the most essential tools in guiding students towards living a joyous and purposeful life. I feel at home ritualizing traditional teachings with creativity in order to explore the Self. 

I have also studied Restorative Yoga extensively and the practical applications of yoga therapy with Judith Lasater. I am grateful to have studied the art of yantras with Pieter Weltevrede & Mavis Gewant. I try to travel to India yearly, where I am re-inspired to share these teachings.
