“Be a water blessing!”. Cheryl Angel, Indigenous leader, and water protector stood at the base of the stream as it becomes the sea and lovingly invited us to take our coveted roles as water blessings and water protectors.
It felt like an initiation into a club to which I had always belonged.
Beneath the Alaskan glaciers, overlooking the peak of the world, a genuine spark came across my mind of what it really means to protect our waters, and how I can every day take actions to do that.
I had never made it to Standing Rock to stand against the pipeline which brought so much attention to the global fight to protect water and to protect life on this planet in 2016.
I watched the fight in awe as I was in Thailand teaching Yoga to eager seekers. I believe many of us come to Yoga for the unified feeling we receive from the practices and teachings. I learned how to be a better human through Yoga and so as I watched my brothers and...

Shakti, in the Yogic tradition coming from India, is the dynamic force that moves through all forms of the universe. From the splitting of an atom to the collapsing of a star, Shakti is primordial cosmic energy.
Shakti has been worshiped as the divine energy that creates and destroys. Shakti devotees call upon her form in the different incarnations of the Goddess. Since Shakti is energy, Shakti manifests in different qualities. To harness a specific energy of Shakti we imagine a Goddess with human features yet with superhuman powers or Siddhis.
