the moon path
Join me for The Moon Path : The Sacred Teachings of Kundalini Yoga for Women. This 3 day training is part of Asheville Yoga Center’s 300 hour RYT program and is designed for both yoga teacher’s as well as non-teachers.
My teacher, Yogi Bhajan, was incredibly inspired by the strength and grace of women and believed that the elevation of the status of women, worldwide, was a key step to peace and harmony for our Earth. This class is exclusive to women students.
For 29 years, Yogi Bhajan called women around the globe to join him for the summers in New Mexico. He shared unique Kundalini Kriyas and meditations specifically for women and over the course of his life, devoted more hours to women’s teachings than to any other subject.
Woman is Shakti, the embodiment of the creative power of the universe. This power has been worshipped for centuries in the form of various goddesses. Every woman has that divine goddess power in her own being, waiting to be recognized. Join us on the Moon Path to explore these teachings together.
Curriculum will include:
• Your unique Moon cycle
• Family life &relationships
• Trajectory of a woman’s yogic needs from childhood to elder
Friday & Saturday 9:00 am- 12:30 pm & 2:00 pm- 5:00 pm
Sunday 9:00 am- 12:00 pm
