"Shiva and Shakti- Energy & Awareness. Shiva and Shakti exist within each of us as the masculine and feminine principles. SHIVA (or Purusha), is pure consciousness – the unchanging, unlimited and unswayable observer. SHAKTI (or Prakriti) means energy, power, movement, change, nature. Shiva and Shakti are manifestations of the all-in-one divine consciousness - different sides of the same coin.
The static yoga poses are powerful transmitters into pure consciousness (Shiva). The postures send kundalini up toward the Sahasrara chakra (top of the head). So in this way yoga postures raise us up to a level of pure consciousness and undisturbed focus (considered the masculine quality). Grab blocks, a strap, and a bolster for today's class."
