What is Shakti Naam®?
Shakti Naam is a powerful anti-aging and disease-defying yogic practice, new to the West from the Himalayas. Shakti Naam incorporates standing postures with deep rejuvenating breathing techniques to open the meridians (energy channels) and remove all blocks in the body. This unique fusion of movement, breath, acupressure, stretching and vocal vibration, activates and strengthens the body's self-healing capacities and helps to increase one's life span - providing people of all ages with radiant health, happiness, and vitality.
Shakti Naam exercises are designed to slow down the aging process, strengthen the immune system, remove stress and keep disease away. This all levels class will involve standing postures with breath work for detoxification, vitality and strength. The practice of Shakti Naam Yoga frees the body's wisdom to optimally express the blueprint in the DNA, bringing out the best version of that person. It is a powerful practice that focuses on liberating and activating the precious life force contained within so as to optimize the body.
The class uses a specific series of unique exercises that train the brain and body to more easily experience this optimal state during daily life thus beneficially impacting one’s performance, communication, intelligence and health. Shakti Naam enhances the body’s capacity to nourish itself, much like a tree, with high quality solar prana, bringing oxygen to the brain, strengthening the heart, clearing energetic paths of the body and detoxifying and nourishing organs. It supports the body in building and activating the reservoir of healing energy located in the lower abdomen. It literally creates movement in the chest thus stimulating the heart and its large vessels and expanding lung capacity with strategies unlike most forms of exercise.
Powerful beyond words, the basic approach is relatively simple: use breath and mudra and asana to open the meridians and remove all blocks. It provides an almost immediate experience of the meditative state as it quickly causes the brain and nervous system to shift.
