What is Shakti?

Adi-ShaktiSimply put, Shakti is the female principle, the divine feminine. She’s the universal source of your abundance, your creativity and your sensuality which feeds your sexuality. She is Gaia, the Great Mother. She is love, wisdom, beauty and joy. In her darker, more terrible forms Durga and Kali, she is the destroyer of ego and arrogance and the deliverer of divine wrath.

She is the kundalini life force that enlivens you, moves you, is your passion, your inspiration and your creative impulse. She is your ability to connect and share yourself with others.

Shakti is energy, she is divine feminine essence—an essential part of how you feel and express yourself as a woman. The experience and expression of Shakti’s energy is unique within each woman. When you work consciously and in harmony with this energy, you come to understand your unique expression of her.


This is an ode to the Divine Feminine. My dance is an interpretation of its prose and how the Divine Feminine flows through me.


Shakti—also referred to as “the Great Mother”—means “empowerment” or “power.” A good relationship with Shakti can lead a woman to feel unafraid, self-aware, sensual, confident, capable, flowing, passionate, inspired and purposeful.

Shakti energy is stored, activated and generated in the second chakra: the lower back, hips, pelvis and womb.

Tapping into that energy and exploring its unique experience through movement and meditation enables a woman to feel more connected to herself. By journeying inwards and feeling that deeper connection to Shakti, she feels empowered and present in her body and more alive.
