Yoga with Melissa 26 is about Shakti. This is the third in a series of classes devoted to the Hindu deities. This week we connect with the divine feminine through Shakti – universal life force energy. Shakti is said to be the energy that underlies every living thing in the universe, the kundalini that lies dormant at the base of the spine. Shakti is responsible for the ultimate in creative feminine energy and birthing new life. Shakti is known as the agent of change. In this class we also explore the interdependence of masculine and feminine principles. From an asana perspective this class focuses on opening up the hips and creating energy through the spinal energy series. Of course there will be Goddess Victory Squat.
