What is Shakti?

Shakti personifies the divine feminine creative power and is the highest creative and healing force in the universe. Shakti is the essence of health, happiness and a meaningful life. Shakti is primordial cosmic energy that moves through the entire universe, dependent on no one but interdependent with all things.

Each time Shakti takes on a new form, we give her a new name. Yoga philosophy describes three main forms of Shakti as related to the body, mind and spirit:

  • Prana Shakti which governs all physical actions, organs and functions. Asanas (yoga postures) and Pranayama (yogic breathing techniques) help develop prana shakti.
  • Chitta shakti which rules all mental functions, including intelligence, thinking, emotions, memory, desires, etc. Self inquiry and meditation techniques help develop chitta shakti.
  • Atma shakti is spiritual energy that pushes us on in pursuit of higher consciousness and spiritual realization.
