    “Learning the Shakti Yoga Dances has transformed my entire practice. It’s amazing how easily I now move in and out of poses, even difficult ones. And getting the connections on the mat has somehow opened up other connections- off the mat.” - Elgar Pichler

International Shakti Yoga Dance Training~ January 7~ February 25, 2024

SHAKTI YOGA DANCES are taught by their creator, Samantha Cameron, MA Dance/Choreography, UCLA, and E-RYT-500 Yoga Alliance

A Shakti Yoga Dance Teacher Training is about toes in the pose creating the sacred and sublime. You not only learn to creatively unite Yoga and dance- bringing magic to the mat, but this is an opportunity to unveil your unique Self and the gifts you have for the world.  The dances are layered and informed by Mudra, chakras, Shakti Goddesses, Astrological energies, poetry, and music. They increase ‘the Emotional Intelligence’ of the wisdom body, connecting heart, mind, and physicality to expand into alchemical potions of power. This is a physical Yoga with a spiritual chaser where we learn to create ‘sacred space,’ for Self, and others.

Learn to embody your unique gifts as you dance the mat!

    Class Construct

    Sunday sessions work on an original Shakti Dance, from the meditation and mudra, to the warm up and closure.  With each dance as a delicious, complex cake, we layer in the moves and slowly repeat until the body is comfortable enough to invite in the emotional body. You add to your Yoga Toolbox as you interpret the dances from an integrated P.O.V. The final, at the end of 8 weeks is to teach your own original dance to the others.

    Having taught three international Shakti teacher trainings, what has been most extraordinary is the community~the Shakti Sisterhood that has blossomed, along with the growth of each participant. Observing the final dances has filled me not only with admiration and joyous gratitude but the hope we continue to remain connected for an ongoing healing journey, embracing a world in need.

    Samantha is a wonderful guide who offers her knowledge without limits, who shares from her heart and soul to inspire. My Sundays became a sacred space to recharge.” Estelle Chassanoil, France
