Find Your Shakti Strength

Anusara | By Scott Lewicki on Nov 20 2010
Tap into Shakti, the power of the universe. All of us are stronger than we think we are. Sometimes it just takes the right challenge to find our true potential.
The exercises in this session will help you to find the strength to achieve lightness in arm balances and move toward pressing up in headstand and handstand.
For this session you will need to be on a smooth floor. You will need a yoga mat, one blanket and two yoga blocks or equivalent.

    First time I take your class. I loved it! I always have so much fun gliding thru the asana flow :) I have a shoulder injury and the jump thru fwd and backwards with the blocks was a wonderful and strong modification! Thanks U <3

    And... I just found out how much strength there is to find within me. Oh my, was this gorgeously challenging. And inspiring, and powerful, and who knew the triangle with the blanket would be the hardest part? I do now.
    Your teaching is SO kind, it made it easy to laugh with my practice as I navigated uncharted territory in my core.
    thank you!

    Yes Scott! Thank you for this class. I've made press-up handstand a goal for myself this year ?!? and you have presented some really great ways to actually get there. You gave me the lucky. :) Wish I had a chance to say hi to you in Bryn Athyn, saw you there... hope you had a great weekend with our teacher.

    Scott, thank you for an awesomely inspiring class 'loaded with insider tips' - ha! I never knew I could press up into tripod headstand with straight legs and back to plank - repeatedly! Eka grata, ahimsa and santosha - life is amazing ;-).
    Namaste.
