Shakti Sisters Yoga class
In each class, a special goddess card is chosen and meditated upon. Your personal goddess serves as a guide and inspiration during practice. After a grounding meditation, we awaken our energy through a strengthening and focusing yogic flow, then nurture our feminine spirit with the sensuous movements of bellydance, free-dancing and finally ending in deep relaxation. Throughout the class, attention is given not only to proper alignment, but also to deepening our intuitive faculties, and connecting to the sacred energy flowing through us. The term ‘Shakti’ means sacred force, or power. It is the dynamic, feminine energy of creation. Emphasis is on nurturing ourselves as women- moving and breathing mindfully, connecting to mother earth, honoring our fluctuating energy levels, and to feel pleasure in moving our bodies.
