Shakti yoga is designed especially to awaken uniquely feminine flavour of strength, invoking our inner power and harnessing vital energy ~ Shakti ~ to replenish and energise us. We will learn to access Source energy from within our feminine energy centres and the earth.
Weekly, we will cultivate pelvic presence (the secret of feminien vitality) returning to our roots for healing and empowerment as we anchor in the Source of our being.
You will be invited into authentic and organic expression of movement through our bodies, in addition to classical yoga postures and mudras to clear, align and open the nadis (energy channels), circulating this vital energy for health, healing, creativity and spiritual connection.
There will be a generous serve of restorative poses in each session to experience the medicine of softness through stillness, deeper receptivity and complete surrender into relaxation, integrating the movement practice. This is truly where the magic of our Shakti yoga practice lies, allowing us to deepen beneath ‘ordinary’ consciousness and access the deeper wisdom within, restoring the balance in our bodies and energy system.
Practicing in nature, we always adapt to conditions – if heat is excessive, our practice will be more restorative focussed and possibly include a meditation/chanting practice inside the air-conditioned Devi Mandir (Goddess temple)
Each session will be a 90 minute sanctuary space for you to drop in deeply and unwind at the end of the week. Chai will follow each class with an opportunity to connect with other yoginis or if you prefer to connect with the land in silence (or having a swim if there is water in the creek!).
We practice surrounded by nature by the creek at the beautiful Upper Brookfield Shala. If the weather is excessively hot or rainy we will be inside with ample views to the green oustside!
This is a friendly and intimate class (limited to 10 women) – bookings are essential to ensure your place
