Revital Carrolll is an internationally acclaimed performer and teacher of Classical Indian Dance. She is the founder of Shakti Bhakti School of Dance, author of Mudras of India and the Mudras of Indian Dance Card Deck, and creator of three instructional DVDs: Temple Goddess Workout, Odissi Dance Foundations, and Odissi Dance Spins and Choreography. She studied traditional Odissi Dance in Odisha, India with some of the most eminent dance gurus on the subcontinent. Revital draws her inspiration from the elements of nature, the wisdom of her own body, and the rich spiritual heritage of India. She lives in Northern California, and offers Odissi Dance workshops and performances worldwide.

Revital is the perfect teacher for students looking for a mind-body-spirit connection in their exercise experience. I took Odissi Dance and yoga classes with her for about 2 years and loved the balance of flexibility, strength training, endurance, discipline, graceful movement, self-awareness, and spiritual centeredness woven into her sessions. Class with Revital is sure to make you look, and feel like a goddess.

Performance Highlights

Odissi Dance is as disciplined and difficult as mastering a violin concerto; and yet when I watched Revital dance, the moment was the only thing there was–timeless, spacious–it was everything, everything.
