YOGADVENTURES HUMALIWO: 

Chakra Prana Flow I - Lunar Arts for Women for Self-Healing and Empowerment ||  Embodying the Sacred Triangle - Muladhara-Swadhisthana Chakra Flow

Our new Living Flow Humaliwo Retreat House, located in Malibu CA, is a sacred space where we can live the rhythms of yoga together in spacious accommodations with natural, healthy, vegetarian food - allowing for immersion in yoga teacher training and nourishment. This beautiful neighborhood estate allow us to live together in a magical space to explore the power of Humaliwo or Malibu as it is known to the Chumash original peoples of this pristine coastal area where wild dolphins, sea lions, hawks, deer, and even a few mountain lions call home.  A truly intimate time to ground and replenish.  

Diving deep in the Prana Vinyasa Teacher Training Foundation and Prana Vinyasa yoga, we will be able to enter into the rhythm of living yoga including teacher self-care, deep prana vinyasa solar-lunar practice, morning and evening meditation, altar, ritual and community life.

Come together in a circle of women for a lunar arts practice and teacher study immersion to support our journey as women in all the phases and seasons of our body and life as we embody the creative power from within.

Embodying the Sacred Triangle  - Muladhara-Swadhisthana Chakra Flow - Explore for the first time, our most beloved "chakra vinyasa" program offered as a meditation in motion or lunar prana flow arts practice specifically to support and empower women.

In this practical and inspirational exploration of the chakra system for a women's body, we will return to a Tantric-Ayurvedic-Somatic approach to integrating our energy body, awareness, embodiment and life through the lens of the four fires (dim, excessive, wavering and balanced).

You will receive transmission to practice and teach three complete Lunar/Shakti Prana Flow classes integrating chakra namaskars, body mudra, chakra-based meditation, mudras, mantra and visualization and shakti yoga nidra to listen to embodied wisdom and offer meditative flow flow-based classes for all or specifically women at all stages of their life.
