What does Shakti mean?
According to Wikipedia
Shakti (Devanagari: शक्ति, IAST: Śakti; .lit “power, ability, strength, might, effort, energy, capability”), is the primordial cosmic energy and represents the dynamic forces that are thought to move through the entire universe in Hinduism and Shaktism.
Shakti is the concept or personification of divine feminine creative power, sometimes referred to as “The Great Divine Mother” in Hinduism. As a mother, she is known as “Adi Shakti” or “Adi Parashakti”. On the earthly plane, Shakti most actively manifests through female embodiment and creativity/fertility, though it is also present in males in its potential, unmanifest form. Hindus believe that Shakti is both responsible for creation and the agent of all change. Shakti is cosmic existence as well as liberation, its most significant form being the Kundalini Shakti, a mysterious psychospiritual force.

Liz Shakti Hudson, E-RYT500, RCYT is a fun-loving, curious yogini and teacher. She loves to meditate, travel the world, read and write, paint and create art, make jewelry, sew, and most of all Liz loves embracing life and teaching all people big or little! When she found yoga almost 20 years ago, it was the home within that she had always been seeking. She began teaching children yoga in her Montessori classroom and instantly fell in love with helping people find connection to their breath, body, peaceful mind and spirit! Liz strives to empower her students to create their own practice and take away tools to use in everyday life. Also, Liz helps encourage students to intuitively flow into a meditative practice by connecting their movements with breath.
