Welcome Radiant Women!
Embody Shakti’s 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training is unique in that it approaches yoga from a more feminine point of view and equally values the many other yoga traditions. There is an emphasis on giving ourselves permission to trust our intuition and become aware of sensations in the body as a doorway to knowing our inner alignment and true essence. We study how thoughts shape our emotions and ultimately how we live our lives. We learn about the subtle body as a self organizing system and tune into it’s natural intelligence. Our curriculum is designed to take you through the transformative power of the Shakti energies of yoga using Sally Kempton’s “Awakening Shakti” as a guide book throughout the training. Embody Shakti is certified through Yoga Alliance with Alison Litchfield Robinson ERYT 500 and guest teachers.
This smaller, intimate training is a transformational journey into deepening your understanding of Yoga for modern day life as well as the exploration of being a leader for change.
Leadership requires that we walk our talk and live our yoga practice as a lifestyle. It is so easy to get swept up in somebody else’s vision or dream which can lead us to places of profound discontent.
Come take your sovereign seat in this circle of women as we root into our unique self, supported in tribe, becoming powerful beyond measure.
Part of the 200 hour requirements include home study, reading, practice and assignments you will need to turn in to complete your training.

“I can personally say that my experience through this Embody Shakti program was ground-breaking, earth-shaking, world-changing and I would never, ever have made a different choice had I given the chance. Embody Shakti was the single-most incredible turning point in my short life so far – without it, I would never be teaching yoga. I would still struggle with knowing myself on a deeper level. I would not have the beautiful Sisterhood I have now, and I would not have decided to dedicate my life to service, empowering the feminine, and healing the collective consciousness. I give enormous gratitude and thanks to Alison for opening up a passage for Shakti to move through me.” – Jaelyn Kohl
