One of the highlights of the ashram’s teachings in 2017 was the August Festival of Yoga on the Sacred Feminine. We were so touched by the excellent feedback received that we are delighted to offer this 4-day course for women.
The course will include an exploration of the seasons of the moon or menstrual cycle, and how this can illuminate the nature of feminine energies through each month. Through simple yet profound techniques, we will explore all the phases of woman - maiden, mother, matriarch and crone - and consider how social, religious and historical beliefs and perceptions may be influencing our individual and collective life experience. We will work with practices to awaken and reconnect to our womb space; the womb being our innate source of wisdom and power (these are energetic practices so work just as well for women with a hysterectomy).
The qualities of the Goddess Saraswati will be embraced and expressed through the medium of art, chanting and sacred dance. The course will also include daily hatha yoga classes, meditations and karma yoga (selfless service). The course will culminate in a havan (sacred fire).
This course will appeal to women who are willing to step forward with courage, embracing their warrior woman to move beyond their comfort zones so they can live more fully from their authentic self.
Places will be limited to 18 women maximum.
