Course Description

Dharma Shakti is based on the ancient wisdom that your soul wants to sing with:

PURPOSE—the calling to find out who you truly are, learn to love it, and to use your unique talents to fulfill yourself and leave the world a better place than you found it

SUPPORT—the desire for material means such as health, education, time, security, finances, etc.

PLEASURE—the longing for pleasures like joy, intimacy, beauty, sensuality, love, etc.

LIBERATION—the aspiration for spiritual connection and lasting freedom

How you interact with each of these aims of the soul, or four desires, as well as how we create opportunity towards or away from them sets is up on your life’s journey. When we acknowledge the Song of the Soul and move in that direction, the ancient teachings suggest that we then achieve access to living our best life – not only of personal fulfillment – but also how you make a meaning contribution to the world.

Attend & learn tools to help:

  • Reveal your soul’s unique Dharma Map to live with a openhearted and empowered sense of purpose, energy and fulfillment.
  • Cut the cords of your hidden shadows, or Vikalpas – the “fake news” stories buried deep in your unconscious that form from trauma, past experiences, and  ancestry that handcuff you to old habits and patterns
  • Dedicate yourself to your North Star, or Sankalpa – an intention that partners with your Dharma Map and supports your growth and energy toward living in the world with Dharma Shakti.

Key topics we will cover:

  • Heal, transform, and strengthen your body and mind with asana, pranayama, meditation and Yoga Nidra practices
  • How your current life is made up of habits (i.e. samskaras and vasanas) from a time long ago and how to filter through the useful vs. hindering ones
  • Open your mind and heart to purposeful action – raising your awareness in personal and collective consciousness to glow and shine
  • Understand how hidden acquired content and/or limiting beliefs in your subconscious affects your personality and how to get in front of it, redirect and transform limiting thought constructs
  • Dive into the psychology of yoga
  • Learn more about the energy of desire and longing and how it’s needed to create an empowered life
  • Illuminate your soul’s missions of purpose, support, pleasure, and liberation, and increase your awareness and capacity to fulfill them
  • Practice and learn tools to open your intuition and Dhi, your inner guiding voice
  • Learn more about karma and how is works against or for our desires
  • Spiritual texts and inspired writing that speak of shaping personal destiny such as The Bhagavad Gita, Walden, The Gnostic Texts, and more
  • Gain access to your best self – both for yourself AND the world – and start Rockin’ With Shakti!!


This is a course for anyone – those new to yoga, experienced students, and yoga teachers alike!
