This dance is a love letter to Ukraine. It is offered ‘back to source’ as a heart-gift for the extraordinary courage of the Ukrainian People. As I dance with my Shakti Sisterhood around the world, we hope you join us, energetically, in song and dance! Our vision is a prayer joining the world to lift, support, and protect Ukraine. I am but one, our offer small, but as you join, WE become a vast army of spirit-warriors who together, surround Ukraine in power-filled light, hope & love. I hope you practice this Shakti Yoga Dance to be ready when we send a link for an appointed day and hour so EVERYONE can dance and cry and raise the vibration of light everywhere. I think John would approve, don’t you? (Notify samcatcam@gmail you wish the link. Stay tuned!)

If you want to be invited to the party called life~learn to dance! Become a Shakti Yoga Dance Instructor 

The next Virtual Teacher Training begins August 21, 2022, culminating nine weeks later on Oct 16th.

This international training is for yoga instructors, AND those wishing to expand their practice, physically and emotionally.  Graduates of this 40-hour training are awarded certification and YA credits. 

Previous graduates, ( Shakti Reviews ) confirm that their lives are changed by ‘the Dance.’  When mudra, mantra, Shakti archetypes and mythos, music, chakra, poetry, and healing intention are woven into movement, life opens to its deeper mystery, opening new pathways. This training expands body, heart, and mind to wilder talent and wider points of view. 

Bowing to the toll Covid-19 has had on yoga teachers, the fee for Shakti Yoga Dance Virtual Teacher Training will remain at $500 /471E fee.  Register by August 1 for a $50 savings -$450/424E.  Do register soon as I limit the class size to provide intimacy for enhanced creativity and individual attention,

One of the most joyous aspects of these training sessions is that we grow into a ‘sisterhood of shared grace,’ learning from one another around the world.  We gather for 3.5 hours on Sunday mornings, 9-12:30 ET so that regardless of where you are you can be within time-reach. If you miss class, sessions are recorded so you can “keep up” ~even when life gets in the way. 

Since beginning the international training in 2020, I have changed and expanded four important aspects:  1. A healing focus has been added to the many layers within a dance.  This is thanks to participants of the previous training who worked as healers.  2. I have opened up the choreographer’s toolbox to enhance your Yoga~a gift of my Masters in Dance.  3.  Your creative chops grow and are challenged to expand, not only within you, but as wonderful gifts for your students. 4.  A ‘mutual workbook’ is created between us as we move through the training, plus you receive recordings of all original choreographies.  

If the following interests you, YOU belong in the dance!

Learn to play with energy. Change your point of view by connecting subtle body layers. Synthesize body-mind connections, expanding your consciousness. Shakti Yoga Dances enrich your nature, transforming the mundane to mystical, logical to intuitive, and chaotic to peaceful.

The art of Shakti Yoga Dances is the art of healing body and sorrow. The unique sequencing, the practice of muscle and bone growing resilient and powerful, the musical invitations calling imagination to soar as breath connects ever deeper into movement, demand new life to flow ~ changing who we once were. What we learn to heal within, we then offer another, until the world is dancing and singing.

The art of manipulating asanas into dance sequences is the art of becoming a storyteller. Choreographically, we reveal ourselves in fresh, new forms, growing intuition, creativity, and joy. The dances move through us, layered in sound, breath, shape, and emotion, and in this rich layering we see life more as a poem than an email; more as a tapestry than a dishcloth.

The dance on the mat is the discovery of the dancer within, and as the dancer, YOU are changed by inspirational fire imbued in the movement. Ancient Tantric practitioners knew that body and emotion regenerate and heal with dance. They used its power to call in the divine. We long for tribal joining and shared rituals. We yearn to feel light-filled and passionate. Join Shakti Yoga Dances as she weaves her magic in rituals feeding body, mind, spirit, and emotion.
