About Jess:

Desikachar says, “If you want to know whether your yoga practice is working don’t look to see if you are just able to sweat more in a class, or do another complicated pose, look to your life – look at your relationship with your emotions, psyche and that of your loved ones.”

Jess has been practicing yoga and mindfulness for 6.5 years. She has been trained in 200 hours of power yoga, 300 hours of the foundations of yoga therapy and 150 hours of Hatha yoga. She studies mindfulness and has attended an intensive, silent meditation sitting with Tara Brach. In addition to this she practices as a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner and facilitates groups/provides therapy to assist in breaking through habitual patterns that keep individuals “stuck”. She practices yoga and mindfulness daily. These practices have changed her life in many realms. Through the help of these practices she has healed from chronic knee pain and PTSD. Yoga and mindfulness continue to bring her freedom and love to her life.

Lindsay Lusignea Workshop Weekend

Friday, December 2, 5:30-7:30pm

Slow Your Flow: The Art of Yoga as Self-Care

Sink into an evening of pure bliss. In this deeply therapeutic workshop Lindsay will guide you through a relaxing and refreshing yoga practice. As the changing Fall season comes to an end and the introspective and busy Winter season begins, take time to reflect, slow down, and breathe.


The class will begin by focusing inward with meditation and journaling, followed by a slow, restoring vinyasa flow with various postures that will bring expansion to all areas of your body including your feet, legs, hips, back, neck and wrists. The second half of class will be a restorative practice using props and yin yoga poses to bring healing to your mind and body.

This style of yoga will target the connective tissues and the joints of the body that normally are not exercised very much in a more active style of asana practice. Feel the healing benefits of yoga by liberating your body's chronic holding patterns and pain. Learn postures you can do at home or at work to keep your body healthy and your mind stress-free.

Come to restore and you will revive yourself mind, body, and spirit.

$30 or all 3 workshops for $75

We will use pranayama, unique postures, and fun sequences that will target digestive and detox organs in the body and that will renew your spirit.

Explore Your Boundaries: The Art of Backbends and Arm Balances

"Instead of thinking outside of the box, get rid of the box."


Backbends and arm balances involve strength, flexibility, technique, and several doses of courage. This is an inviting workshop to safely explore some of the most elusive postures in our yoga practice through eye-opening education and direct experience.

In this workshop we will begin by learning about the alignment and anatomy of backbend and arm balance postures. Then we will use a variety of tips and techniques during a warm up series to prepare the body for both basic and advanced variations. In these postures, we explore the unseen and unknown by moving into transitions and postures that can often appear impossible. Backbend postures and transitions include bow pose and variations, wheel pose and variations, camel pose and variations, tic-tocs, camel to wheel. Arm balance postures and transitions include crow and related variations including firefly, grasshopper, transitioning from one arm balance to another, and more.

Expect to challenge your physical practice and expand your mental mindset with your supportive and encouraging community. This will be an exciting workshop open to all levels - there will always be a step that you can do. Surprise yourself.

AYP Flow - Donation-based class

We are so excited to host 2 teachers from Africa Yoga Project. Brian and Millie will be joining us to lead a high energy, unique power flow class on Saturday August 6th at 9:30am. This will be in place of our regular 9:30am class, and will be donation-based. 100% of the proceeds will go to AYP, which is an amazing worldwide organization dedicated to bringing yoga into parts of Africa that would not otherwise experience it. 

Be sure to register your spot online

We will have a short info session immediately following the flow class to talk about Shakti's Seva Safari plans for June 2017. This is an awesome opportunity for our local community to stretch our reach further than ever before and impact an African community with the power of YOGA. We hope you will stick around to chat with us about our safari plans and find out how you can be involved!

 


Millie was born in 1990 and is the second of eight children and grew up in the Kariobangi slums. She used to believe that she was not worthy to discover and enjoy what life had to offer. She became lost and began wandering from place to place; staying with different people every week. This wandering led her to Catherine, Director of Teachers at Africa Yoga Project. Mille started babysitting for Catherine and found herself joining Catherine every Saturday at AYP’s Shine Center for the community yoga class.
In 2014 she applied for teacher training and became a yoga teacher. Mille now happily lives on her own and is teaching 7 to 8 outreach classes a week. She now has a sense of great self worth and finds joy living in a world where she continues to learn and grow.

In Millie’s words, “Yoga has changed me, changed my thoughts, my personality and how I talk to people. I used to not talk to anyone; even greeting someone was a problem and I would hide myself inside a room. As a yoga teacher, I now spend my extra time on my mat with others and journaling”.


Brian Kangethe, popularly known as “Ba Yubrah” lives in an informal settlement called Kangemi within the outskirts of Nairobi. Brian was born as the only child to a single mom, who passed away when Brian was 5 years old and he was passed around to different guardians throughout his childhood. Brian's school life was unstable and he dropped out in his 8th year and as a result, ended up on the streets. Hustling and conning people was his way of survival and he turned to drugs to numb his pain. 
While on the streets, Brian miraculously met Azi and other friends who had started in acrobats and are now yoga teachers, and helped him see another way of life. Later, he was given the opportunity to join Africa Yoga Project and attend yoga teacher training.

The magical touch of yoga has transformed Brian’s life and he is now a powerful teacher and role model in his community.  According to Brian, "Yoga has inspired me to be a better person in the way I live and how I show up.  It has taught me to live my life in a courageous and authentic way. I feel a unique connection with everyone who practices yoga because we all have our up's and down's, we all suffer in one way or the other and yoga brings that balance, that peace, that love and that harmony to all as human beings. It's a feeling I wouldn't want to keep to myself at all because I have learned what it really means to live for others.”

Brian’s favorite quote is: LIVE FOR YOURSELF, YOU LIVE IN VAIN. LIVE FOR OTHERS YOU WILL LIVE AGAIN. ~BOB MARLEY~

IGOLU Workshop - Vision & Goal-Setting

Join us for this special emPower School of Yoga training weekend! Hosted at Shakti Power Yoga, funds raised will go to support the emPower School of Yoga teacher trainees' Baptiste Foundation Immersion training weekend Saturday, February 27.

$30/session or $50/full day

Session 1: 9:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m.
“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you’ve imagined.” - Thoreau

Create goals and a vision that inspire you. What kinds of things in your life bring you joy? How could you be 5% happier on a daily basis? Sometimes it’s the little things that matter most and can ultimately lead to that bigger, scarier dream in the not-so-distant future.

Based on the book, The Happiness Project and the IGOLU communication series content, we’ll will take you through a series of journaling exercises, allowing you to look closer at your strengths and the things that bring joy and fulfillment into your life on a regular basis. Using your insight, you’ll create a bigger vision, as well as powerful and measurable goals for 1, 5 and 10 years.


Session 2: 1:30 p.m.- 4:00 p.m.
“Goals are dreams with a deadline.”

You have goals on paper. So, now what? How will you get there? Who will support you? Often, our goals are more powerful when shared with others and the people who surround us can offer new perspectives we can’t see ourselves. This fun, interactive session will have you generating ideas with others on how to reach your goals.

Join Liz, Kelly, and Lauren to expand your knowledge and deepen your practice. 

Foundations of Power is ideal for beginners and will provide the tools necessary for you to feel comfortable attending any all-levels class at Shakti. We will look at the elements that make up a typical power yoga class and you will come away with a better understanding of breath, flow, alignment, and how to create new possibilities in your practice. Oh and FUN! 

Foundations workshops are also very beneficial for intermediate practitioners who have never attended a Foundations class or had private instruction. Come explore and deepen your practice with us.

Partner Thai Yoga Massage Workshop

Partner Thai Yoga Massage Workshop

Thai Massage is an ancient form of therapeutic bodywork combining assisted yoga stretches, acupressure, Ayurvedic principles and pranayamic breathing. Similar to yoga, Thai Massage enhances strength and flexibility, relaxes sore or tense muscles, and can help to recapture a busy mind. It is done in pairs, cultivating a deep sense of connectivity and mutual healing between partners.

In this workshop, Jenna Wolf will guide you through a flow of applied yoga stretches, interwoven with rhythmic pressure using hands, elbows, knees and feet. We will explore the basic elements of Thai Massage and how they can be of practical use in everyday life. You will work with a partner in both giving and receiving Thai Massage.

Bring a friend or lover, wear warm comfortable clothing and prepare for a Valentine's Day weekend afternoon of bliss.

$45 per pair -
This Workshop is Currently Sold Out! We will post online if any spaces become available prior to the workshop date!
