Rise into your Shakti with Chandra Namaskara
with Rahi Santhanam & Sheetal Jayaraj
Here’s an invite to a powerful, relevant and timely workshop – Rise into your Shakti with Chandra Namaskara. This is facilitated by teachers Rahi Santhanam & Sheetal Jayaraj – both of whom have had deep personal experiences with Moon rituals. Additionally, Rahi Santhanam has been involved in exploring and sharing the aspect of the Divine Feminine. Sheetal comes from a family that recognizes and honours the Moon and her cycles through various rituals. Together, they will take you through a vibrant inward journey that awakens and celebrates the energy within you that is earthy, compassionate, receptive, honest and is brimming with creative possibilities.
Chandra or the Moon is mystical and is associated with the unknown and the dark ie., our shadow self. Although our roots speak of living a life in accordance with Moon phases, Moon practices have not seen the light of the day for various reasons. Not surprising that the inner self remains a mystery too for many!
Like the Sun, the Moon is an integral part of the journey of any Yogabhyaasi or Yoga practitioner. If you need a Surya Namaskara that fires you up and prepares you to take on the world, you also need a Chandra Namaskara to quieten and nurture and engage with the silent space of your beautiful inner self. This space is vibrant with an energy that once touched will make you own and speak your truth, heal and feel complete. This is the awakening of Shakti. This is what the world needs now!
If you recognise this calling, come join this beautiful journey to Rise into your Shakti. Learn the roots and the significance of Chandra Namaskara. Experience the practice to feel, heal and spread the message.

What are past event participants saying about Rahi’s and Sheetal’s Moon sessions?
There is so much of focus on the sun that we underestimate the power of the moon. In this beautifully curated session, I was able to discover new dimensions that I did not know existed before.
Thank you Sheetal for guiding me and all of us who have been on this journey for more than a year with you. The meditation was very silent and intense , a journey towards silence, the chanting of ‘OM’ brings peace within. The beautiful quest that most of us have is the purpose of life. I now have the faith that answers will come.My gratitude as ever to you and to universe as well for making you the Media Guru in all the Moon meditations. 🙏
The event was soothing and rejuvenating. Found answers to some questions, feeling a combination balance and strength, don’t know how I can express it through words. Much needed this time. Gratitude.
Thank you so much! As always, it was such a pleasure listening to Rahi Ma’am 💛 This is the most I’ve heard about the significance of the moon according to our culture and it has piqued my interest. The moon has always invoked bhakti and humility in me. I now understand it’s essence of grounding and rejuvenating before the outburst of new energy. It also keys in perfectly with our energy transformation during menstrual cycles.
Thank you once again!
Thank you so much Sheetal and Rahi mam for this amazing experience. Hope to see you both in conversation again. There is just so much that I never heard, knew or understood before, which I learned through this session….. the chants at beginning and end were beautiful!
Namaskaram! I’m a student from Mysore,Karnataka.Waited years to attend Rahi Ma’s session! This has come at such a right time! I want to join all of you soon! Such wonderful people doing such beautiful work! I whole- heartedly request Sheetal ma’am to bring up more content like these! Thank you so much ma’am! Lots of positivity from this end too!
That was fantastic learning..wish to learn more 🙏 thank you for letting me be a part of this!
Such a well thought out and lovely session. It has definitely made me feel transformed and energized.
Quite a transformational experience from the New to the Full Moon. I went through some powerful experiences that has prompted me to seriously reconsider and reflect on the things that I thought were important. Deep gratitude!
