  • Shakti is the creator of the universe,
    the universe is her form…
    In Shakti is the form of all things,
    of all that lives and moves in the world.
    There is no jewel rarer than woman.

- Shakti Sangama Tantra

Join a circle to connect modern-day yoginis with the universal and ancient yoga traditions that honour the Shakti within all of creation. Shakti Prana Flow is path of awaken the living connection of the sacred feminine from fertility, pregnancy, motherhood and the change that continues to deepen through the loving and transformative process.

Deepen your cultivation of embodied spirituality, opening to and nurturing the creative juices, passion, and wise depths of Shakti within. Be empowered to support women in these phases: moon cycle, fertile juiciness, pre-natal, motherhood, creative empowerment and wisdom change.

Each day is an empowerment into two complete solar and lunar Shakti Prana Vinyasa master classes for the practitioner. Main focus will be on the cyclical nature of the female body through Chandra and Shakti Prana Flow Namaskars (moon and goddess movement meditations), special wave sequences, Shakta-based sacred prayers, chants, mantra and texts, women’s ritual circle, and contemplation of one’s life journey.

Throughout our time together, we seek to create an embodied spirituality, opening to and nurturing the creative juices, embodied passion, and wise depths of Shakti within.
