Our program MA YOGINI is expressing the potential benefits of Yoga in the journey into motherhood. MA is the primordial and powerful mantra for the supreme mother in Sankrit and YOGINI is the name given to the female adept in yoga. With this name we are honouring the divine shakti, the creative and manifested energy. The ancient wisdom of the tantra in India named the earth the great goddess, the mother of all living things. then womens and the earths fertility were combined, as expressed, for example in a archaeological seal found In Harappa ( see image below) showing a women upside down , giving birth to an entire tree, with its trunk and branches, with a emanation coming out of her yoni. it is not a baby, nor a plant—it is energy—that of the life force which brings both babies and vegetation into being, into this world. You will notice that her arms are on her knees in an almost meditative position . which are linked with our tradition of Kashmir Shaivism

Kashmir Shaivism has been known for being a non dual philosophy strong linked with the householder tradition of tantra in India, the connection is clear this philosophy use the shakti force in everything as an important fuel for life and our masters has been aware that the most accessible aspect of shakti , of primordial cosmic energy , is women, for every women is a goddesses and that Kundalini is that mysterious dynamism which guides the evolution of being from the fertilized ovum onwards. in history and legend the woman is often a source of meditation, vision , excitement, strength, challenge, energy and inspiration to humans and acts as a catalyst in his life, while the role of the goddesses was to guide, direct and give meaning to the lives of the heroes that they choose. Learn how to support women during their journey into motherhood, conscious birthing and postnatal yoga in adequate manner encouraging women to experience a confident postnatal transition, joy-filled pregnancy, and empowered birth osition . which are linked with our tradition of Kashmir Shaivism
