How many times have you stopped to honour the powerful feminine side of you?, and I am not talking about the superficial side, I am talking about the inner sacred side of yourself, that inner goddess that empowers you to glow with grace and beauty!, I am talking about the un-tamed natural power inside you. The workshop “Honouring your inner goddess” might just present an opportunity for you to connect with that power within, using yoga, meditation, breathing and a creative fun drumming session will kick off your creative play side.
Many times we talk about the power inside of us that drive us forward, the inner warrior that takes us through our emotional battles, but let us not forget the inner goddess that makes us shine every day, empowering us to fly higher, inviting us to create deeply from within, or to love strongly and unconditionally our dear and close ones. If we must label this power, maybe “inner goddess” is one option, whatever, the label, your source of feminine power is already working for you! So maybe it is time to honour it more frequently.
In my view, all women have a powerful feminine side within which gets expressed clearly, but sometimes its light gets dimmed due to external circumstances (and let me clarify that this has nothing to do with appearances, but more with inner strength). Our current society can sometimes be felt like a masculine-goal driven one, and although I am a true advocate for gender equality, I also believe that women have certain qualities that come naturally to us: creativity, wisdom and care to mention some… I want to avoid falling into stereotypes, men have these qualities too, but us women have a source of power in them that sometimes we tend to forget as we seek to focus on certain aspects of our lives, prioritizing some, neglecting others…
Living a fulfilling life is also about seeking and bringing balance (I wish I would have known this earlier in my life!), the workshop will spend 5 min inviting you to become familiar with the “Goddess circle”, where several categories are created (Play, career, Romance, Creativity, Nurturing, magic & ritual, personal adventure, etc.) and you get to create awareness of how much of your time it is dedicated to all these aspects… just an invitation.
Inner Goddess in your Yoga practice?
How can we bring our inner goddess to our Yoga practice? By being how we are, not waiting until we can do the perfect forward bend, or the hand stand, or side crow…stop assuming that our yoga practice will be at its best if I can just touch my toes, if I can just do a deep Chakrasana… Yoga is not the perfect pose, nor the perfect alignment, Yoga is union of body and mind regardless of ability. If I would have waited to achieve those poses before I did Yoga teacher training, I would have waited for ever… ACCEPT where you are, who you are, be gentle in your practice, do not wish you could do what your fellow yogi on the mat next to you did 3 weeks ago.. this is YOU.. invite your inner goddess to your life, to your centre stage and to your Yoga practice…
the Workshop will open a space for women to honour their inner power, regardless of ability.. all you have to do, is to step into it!
Come and celebrate your inner goddess! You deserve it!
