  • Level 2: Surfing Shakti Ongoing Yoga
  • Shakti is a powerful creative force in life that makes everything possible.  It's in you, it's in me, it creates celebration and challenge, it is day and it is night.  The path of the yogi or yogini is to listen and open to Shakti.... that which is most alive and awake in every moment.  When we can align with the momentum of Shakti, movement in our bodies and lives comes with ease..much like floating downstream on a river.  Refine your practice and build endurance while strengthening your inner understanding of Shakti. Classes include intermediate backbends, forward bends, twists, standing poses, balancing poses as well as handstand prep.  New to Still Waters Yoga?
