Yogini DVD: Vinyasa Flow Yoga for Women
A dynamic yoga practice designed specifically for women.
Women are blessed with innate creative energy. This energy--called shakti--lies at the heart of life, yet it’s easy to become disconnected from it. Caught up in everyday activities, women can lose sight of their inner strength. In this DVD, enjoy five fluid practices to make you feel energized and powerful, vibrant and healthy.
The customizable Yoga Matrix caters to your time and energy level, allowing you to assemble the sequences any way you wish. Try a heart-centered practice, a flowing backbend segment, a series of empowering standing poses, and a healing meditation for relaxation. Tone your body and balance your mind as you revel in the gorgeous scenery and inspirational practice.
Set in Kauai under a breathtaking waterfall, Yogini nourishes the beauty, grace, and vitality within you.
Available through Acacia

Global Mala Project 2010
The mala is a circular symbol that transcends the individual and cultural barriers to actualize the universal heart of realization and transformation. Please join an extraordinary opportunity to be part of a human mala of the heart, bringing the Yoga, Tantra and Buddhist communities together around the world in collaborative practice for peace. Experience a ritual festival bringing meditation, yoga and mantra in a seven-hour participatory cycle open to people of all backgrounds, experience and age to affirm the power of unifying consciousness through sacred movement, breath and intention. Set in the stunning mandala of Tara Mandala Retreat Center's new Temple dedicated to the sacred feminine, this event is offered in conjunction with worldwide celebrations of the Global Mala project in over 50 countries, uniting the global yoga community from every continent, school and approach to form a "mala around the earth" through collective practices based upon the sacred cycle of 108. The intention is to join thousands of planetary rituals that are raising consciousness on Fall Equinox and UN International Peace Day.
Please visit www.yogamonth.org to learn more about hosting your own Global Mala event this September!
