Sally and Shiva, long-time celebrated teachers of the Goddess and women's wisdom, will help you explore the core centers of life energy, based on insights and inner practices from yoga and Tantra. You’ll learn how you can embody the flow of Shakti in your body and your life during the cycle of the New Year.
