About the course
Are you a female yoga teacher who wants to take your yoga practice and classes to the next level?

What is Shakti Yoga?
SHAKTI YOGA IS A FEMININE APPROACH TO YOGA
In this over-masculinized society, many women have lost contact with their soft, sensual yet wild powerful feminine nature, their Shakti. In order to be independent we have had to push ourselves, and compare ourselves with men, competing with them in order to survive. In many cases this world has hardened us, and the sense of magic and trust has been lost.
Shakti Yoga connects you with the wild, intuitive, feminine within you. It brings a sensual mindful awareness into your yoga practice, letting your inner wisdom guide you through each asana, trusting the body’s inherent wisdom to move and heal through each movement. Shakti yoga feels natural, enjoyable and deeply nourishing where you want to do your practice every day without having to force yourself.
Shakti is the life force within, active in both men and women, so Shakti Yoga addresses the need in both men and women to get a connection with their vital creative life force and their feminine aspect within. Shakti Yoga can also be taught to mixed groups and male
Shakti is the life force within, active in both men and women, so Shakti Yoga addresses the need in both men and women to get a connection with their vital creative life force and their feminine aspect within. Shakti Yoga can also be taught to mixed groups and male bodies and is very beneficial for both men and women. The language and focus points are then modified and altered.
This in-depth and experiential training is the first part of the SHAKTI YOGA FACILITATORS TRAINING, which you can apply to if you wish to facilitate Shakti Yoga. You need to have a minimum of a 200 Yoga Teacher Training.
In Level 1 we will cover the basic building blocks of Shakti Yoga. The basic building blocks are breath, sound, movement, touch, stillness, energy work and self-inquiry. The movement part consists of asana, free organic movement and shaking.
After you have successfully completed Level 1 you can apply for the Level 2 Training, which will deepen your capacity and knowledge of the tantric principles, energy work, working with the moon cycle (menstrual), the elements and feminine tantric energy cultivation practices. After Level 1 you can start to facilitate foundational Shakti Yoga classes.
