Yoga as the Union of Shiva and Shakti

The source of all life is ananda.
The world and all its raga is the product of two opposites:
shiva (the static principle) and
shakti (the dynamic principle)

In this class we will try to reach an expanded state of consciousness where we will aim to _DSC6168draw all experiences of the physical body together through rhythmic asana, music, mantra, and meditation, learning that the essence of the highest union is honoring our own sacred sexuality.
