Calling you ALL into a healing journey through the five elemental structure of this body as an expression of Nature (Prakriti) herself. This immersive and experiential series will lead you through theory and practice in four distinct themes: Healing Resonance, Restoring Right Rhythm, The 5 Elements and Ritual. Each series will hold four two-hour classes via the zoom app and will include guided Yoga Nidra meditation, therapeutic movement, healing approaches, theoretical learning with PDF’s and additional resources. If you cannot attend the live class it will be recorded and the Yoga Nidra will be recorded as its own audio file for repeated use.

Tantra for Women is the culmination of Yoli’s study and healing arts practice in the yogic practices historically taught by women for women in an Indigenous oral tradition. Professionally, Yoli brings her two decades of wisdom as a Yoga & Shiatsu Therapist, Doula and Indigenous Healer into this decolonized curriculum that centers the perspectives and experiences of those who are historically pushed into the margins of knowledge-holding namely BBIPOC (Black, Brown, Indigenous, People of Color), women, differently abled, non-binary gender conforming and other Peoples of the Margins. These courses are open for ALL, this will not be a women’s exclusive learning space.

The time for healing is NOW! Healing of self, relations, family, community, nations and planet. In order to realize this potential we must hold the knowledge of how healing and transformation work. This is a radical movement of transformational change and my offering is to start at the sacred beginning of how this human body is an exact replica of the natural world which is composed of a five elemental structure. By walking the Beauty Way, we walk the experiential path of harmonizing the inner and outer nature thus cultivating our individual healing resonance in harmony with ALL OUR RELATIONS. The time has come to share the teachings that have been held in secret with our Indigenous lineages so that the imposter teachings no longer highjack through their methods of consumerism, capitalism, authoritarian hierarchies, suppression, oppression, abuse, colonialism, imperialism and other methods of divisive control.
