SHAKTI CIRCLE:  FULL MOON GATHERING

Wednesday, May 18
6:30pm – 8:30pm
Venue will be sent to you when you register
Registration Closes 48-hours before each Shakti Circle!

$22

Our monthly meetings … the beginning of an era…. stepping out into the world with grace, strength and connection. Dive into the energy of Shakti: which is defined as the female principle of divine energy, especially when personified as the supreme deity.

Shakti is you who cannot be contained. It is the universal power and the unexplainable movement of energy.  Shakti is the dynamic quality that is pumping the blood through our veins, flowing the breath through our lungs and connecting us energetically to others. It’s the energy that creates everything. She connects us all and she is all.

WHY is this important now? Because the Divine Feminine is what will save this planet. Because for so long the power and independence of the Divine Feminine has not been honored. Because it is time to use our feminine power for healing, evolution and growth. Because the next seven generations of beings on this planet needs us to step into our power … now.

All meetings start promptly at 6:30pm

BEING IN CIRCLE breaks open the heart and when women gather, relaxing into the power of Shakti, it creates the potential for miracles to manifest. How this circle will unfold is unknown, it is divine and you will be a part of it.

HOW SHAKTI relates to the moon. SHE is the moon … the moon is the Feminine. Understanding her rhythms and cycles and how they relate to you, is imperative in evolving and aligning with your soul’s calling. What’s new this cycle? What sign is the Moon in? How does that relate to your chart and intentions? How can this energy support your manifestations? How can your thoughts sabotage the energy?

Come explore the Full Moon via ritual, community, connection and love as we gather together to release what no longer serves and embrace the manifesting power and potential of a new seed planted and intentions witnessed.

IT ALL COMES BACK TO LOVE

Heart openers and backbends are the epitome of health.  We are a society that is in constant forward flexion and forward motion.  When we spend so much time forward bending we constrict our breathing – restricting the proper use of all the other systems in the body.  The number one killer in the US is heart disease.  What would it be like if we ALL began living and breathing from our hearts?  Back bends are the ultimate ticket to look fear in the face and react straight from our heart center. This love inducing flow will open your heart and shoulders preparing you for deeper back bends such as Ustrasana, Urdhva Dhanurasana and Eka Pada Raja Kapotasana. Once the heart soars the possibilities are endless!

Saturday, August 13th

Harmonia

2200 Marinship Way, Sausalito CA 94965
$33

Translated, Bhakti is devotion.  The message with this type of yoga is being fully engaged in a relationship with God, or the Divine.  Bhakti Yoga is motivated by the power of love and divinity and sees God as the embodiment of love.  Through worship, affirmative prayer and ritual, the practitioner surrenders himself to God, transforming his emotions into unconditional love and devotion.  Chanting and singing the praises of God are a substantial part of Bhakti Yoga.  

Explore the lineage of Bhakti and the basics of connecting with the Divine through meditation and chanting. We will learn about Hanuman (the deity of devotion), basic meditation techniques, and why incorporating daily chanting into your practice can heal your life.  You will learn basic chants, the meaning behind mala beads, how to clear your “space”, and chants for overall healing and manifesting.  Prepare for 90 minutes of yoga asana and lots of lots singing.  

Post-practice lunch in the garden is available as an add-on.
