Did you know that the oldest recorded yoga series was created by a woman? Lady Niguma was a highly realized yogini who lived about 1000 years ago in India. Lady Niguma’s Yoga has been preserved and practiced by the yogis of Tibet right up until today. On International Women’s Day, we have an opportunity to connect with the feminine lineage of yoga through her practice.
This unique and accessible series targets each chakra from the bottom up with four principle actions. In this workshop you’ll learn this powerful yogini’s amazing story, how her practice works, and the full series.
Everyone welcome – women and the people who love and honour them! Suitable for all levels.
