Shakti Yoga & living arts was founded in 2005 (formerly the Yoga Room in Millburn from 2001).
We are a center dedicated to the art of living well. Shakti is a Sanskrit word (as is yoga), which means energy or power, or that which is manifest (all things with form). Yoga means union, of body, mind, soul and individual with All. Our vision at Shakti is to offer programs that honor the diversity in all, and encourage awareness of the underlying unity within.
Shakti Vision Statement
We envision a world in which all beings are treated with respect and dignity and have equal opportunity for health and happiness. In our vision the word Family includes all beings everywhere. We believe in freedom of creative self expression in all of its forms, including religious and political beliefs and lifestyle preferences where there is respect and equality for all. We believe in Love. We believe in Peace. We believe in Harmony with Nature, with our Family and with our Selves. We believe in you. We believe.
Shakti Mission Statement
Shakti is joyfully committed to serving our community by offering classes, workshops and healing services in a variety of styles for every-body. Our warm, welcoming environment creates a safe space for personal exploration, healing and awakening. We encourage a spirit of playfulness while seriously exploring the deep, spiritual questions, “Who am I?” “Why am I here?” “What happens next?”
