Shakti Yoga for Women
The time has come to offer a class just for women. The desire has been building for a while and now the calling is so strong, that I can no longer hold her back.
This would be a deeply feminine & fluid class for women of all ages, that gives you a space to release, let go, breath out, sigh and shake off anything that needs to be expressed or is not working in your every day life. You may access your inner child, rebellious teenager or wild woman.
This is a class where you can be who you truly are, without striving for perfection, beauty, glamour and not needing to act from obligation, responsibility or care for anyone except yourself. You can ground yourself, rest into mother earth and at times – be in stillness.
It is from this place, that we can remember who we are and re-connect to our true essence of Shakti – pure, creative, feminine, powerful and sexual force. She sits in all of us, waiting to arise when we are ready to receive her. When she is channelled in a healthy, productive way we will be in our ‘flow’, living our dharma or life purpose – whatever that may for you in that moment. You will feel energised, clear, self-expressed and radiant. Our shakti needs to be expressed – our inner world, dreams, desires & passions, needs to pour out into our external world through work, play and purpose.
However, when our shakti is repressed, stuck, mis-guided or not expressed, we may experience any of the following:
- low energy
- depression, lack of motivation or purpose
- anger or frustration
- anxiety and restlessness
- uncertainty, difficulty making decisions
- low self-esteem & confidence
- physical imbalances or symptoms
Shakti Yoga for Women will include: Asana (postures), breathwork (pranayama), meditations, visualisations and other practices to encourage Shakti to awaken such as dancing, shaking and guided Yoga Nidra.
This class would for run for 90 minutes. Cost is $18 casual or $65 for 4 classes.
I have not yet decided on a day or time for the class, so I look forward to hear from you regarding suitable times and days that work for you, weekly classes or term-time blocks ?
