What if Yoga Arose from Ancient Women......

Updated: Jan 27, 2023

What if yoga arose from ancient women?

What if yoga naturally transpired as a way of being in connection with elemental rhythms and the organic cycles of life and the universe?

What if yogic siddhis weren’t about transcending our humanness, but instead about unlocking the powers of the earth, cosmos, and the elements that live within us?

What if bandhas weren’t a way to lock in or lock out energy and prana, but a way to live in mastery of our relationships to our environments and all beings?

What if bandhas are another way of breathing: inhaling and exhaling, receiving and offering?

What if transcendence isn’t just about ascending beyond the world and self, but also expanding our roots deeply into the earth?

What if yoga wasn’t about defying the elements and gunas, but living in harmony with the cosmic ecosystem in all its flux and flow?

What if your blood is the invitation into your own power, and your ability to bleed, birth, and cease bleeding are your innate siddhis?

What if your womb is a portal into the Dreamtime realms and states of samadhi? Whether you have a physical womb or not, energetically we all do.

What if yoga is just as much about awakening the force of the Divine Feminine within us as it is about union with Brahman?

What if your pains are as sacred as your joys?

What if in order to truly live you must allow yourself to die?

What if immortality isn’t the cessation of life and death, but actually the immaculate mastery of all cosmic cycles?

What if revered yoginis and tantrikas developed the practices of rituals and disciplines for devotion and awakening into our power that evolved into what we know today as yoga?

And what if...

... we are just beginning to awaken these dormant memories. Witnessing them sprout from the long buried seeds that live within our cells and the practices themselves.

What if yoga, indeed, arose from ancient women?

What if yoga is born not just of the Heavens, but also of the Earth?

Can you feel them? Can you feel Her?

Does this sound like a truth that you also feel in your bones?
