He has distilled more than three decades of practice and study with Gurudev, Amrit Desai into simple, engaging teachings designed to help you enter the next level of your practice. In 2008, Gurudev bestowed upon Chandrakant the title of Yogacharya, preceptor of Yoga. This is the same title Bapuji bestowed on Gurudev in 1972.

with Mark Kelso and Arti Ross Kelso
Mark Kelso, also known as Hansaraj, has been doing kirtan for over 40 years. Having met Amrit Desai at the age of 16, and Swami
Kripalu at the age of 19, his musical life was altered by the chanting of the divine name. He studied Indian music while at the Oberlin Conservatory with Nada Yoga master Roop Verma, himself a one-time student of Swami Kripalu, as well as a friend of Amrit’s. In addition to his solo piano CDs (on the Narada/Virgin/EMI and Muddy Angel labels), Mark has recorded over 10 CDs of Sanskrit chanting. He has chanted with Ram Dass, Krishna Das, Durga Das and even with Haagen Dazs.
Arti Ross Kelso combines her deep love of yoga with a degree in music. A graduate of Kripalu’s School of Ayurveda and of One Spirit, an inter-spiritual seminary, Arti is a lifelong student of transformation. With Mark she has toured throughout the United States teaching and performing.
