Shakti (pronounced “shahk-tee”) comes from the Sanskrit root for divine energy. It was inspired by a vision to create a warm, open and inviting space for exploring yoga, mindfulness, spirit and community. We invite you to our intimate and cozy studio so that you can experience each class to the fullest. Our space is meant to make you feel as though you were at home. Shakti is designed to be an individualized studio. Our goal is to create a spa inspired atmosphere so that each time you come to take a class you are having a mini retreat. The space is warmed with earthy tones and textiles to create a haven of peace and serenity. After class enjoy a warm cup of tea or lounge on our silk covered benches. You can even peruse our Shakti shop stocked with beautiful hand made bath and body products and all natural cleaning products and foods. What you experience in one visit can change your point of view and enhance every aspect of your life, for good. At Shakti we strive to make yoga a lifestyle. Shakti’s title says YOGA HEALING ARTS. We combine many modalities to help you find your creative energy. Receive one of our many wellness services, take a music or cooking class…stir up your inner fire.
We strive to help you ….. Unlike the large yoga classes typical in most gyms or fitness centers, sessions at Shakti are small and personal, addressing the body, mind and spirit with lots of individual attention for maximum benefit…and safety. Here instead of holding classes with 40 or 50 students we allow a maximum of 15. This allows each student the opportunity to have a connection their teacher, and to play a role in each others lives. We offer classes in different styles with teachers both male and female varying in age and from all teaching backgrounds. We want each student to explore what best serves them for their practice.
Yoga opens the body allowing the spirit to come through, bringing about healing and a profound connection to true self. Yoga is a proven method for increasing flexibility and strength, releasing deep tension or holding patterns in the body, and quieting the mind.
ABOUT YOGA…and why IT’S DIFFERENT at SHAKTI… Yoga is experiencing tremendous popularity in the U.S., with some 15 million devotees — in 2003 alone, the number of Americans practicing yoga increased nearly 29% over the previous year [Harris Research]. However, yoga is by no means a passing fad.
Rather, it is a centuries-old, inspirational practice — and one that is firmly finding its place in a society fraught with unprecedented levels of stress and anxiety.
Numerous scientific studies and the mainstream medical community are proving that yoga measurably affects the musculoskeletal, nervous, cardiovascular and endocrine systems. OPEN, DISCOVER and AWAKEN to the healing power of yoga!
Krista and the entire Shakti team are here to “meet people wherever they are. ” Stop in, say hi, ask questions…most importantly, come as you are, with an open mind and heart.
