Introducing myself and my journal: Inner Power Everyday

About Me:
“A true, rich yoga practice is not necessarily expressed in the presentation of one's most challenging asana. It is something you can see in the face of a yogi. It is in her eyes, in the way she views the world. It is evidenced in the way she shines light towards other beings!”

Yoga World Reach Director and Yoga Therapist, (Rachel) Shakti Redding, has been teaching “the blissipline” of Inner Power Yoga since 2000. She has traveled extensively throughout the world gaining insight, experience, and inspiration; bringing yoga and hope to people from all walks of life. Sharing the practice with people who have disabilities, survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault, cancer patients, those struggling with substance abuse challenges, and others with special needs. Shakti is a firm believer in the power of yoga to awaken the body’s own healing process by aligning with Grace and empowering one’s unique expression of their True Nature.

With gratitude and love, Shakti honors her Anusara Yoga™ teachers: John Friend, Jamie Allison, Anthony Bogart, Desiree Rumbaugh, and Amy Ippoliti; and the great teachers who have inspired her life and teaching:
Baba Muktananda, DevikaMa, Sreedevi Bringi, Nataraja Kallio, Gary Kraftsow,
Don Stapleton, Tom and Deborah Redding and Douglas Brooks.

My Passions:
love, life, yoga, people, beauty, wellness, nature

My Vision for the Future:
Reminding others of their True Nature of Intrinsic Goodness and Inner Power

My Areas of Expertise:
yoga therapy, massage therapy, yoga philosophy, religious studies, ayurveda

Welcome Shakti! I have been getting more and more into yoga this past year. I have been practicing yoga and meditation with the girls I work with in Jamaica.

The prominent yoga studio in Jamaica is called Shakti! From what I understand, the meaning is the female energy within.

I look forward to reading more about your organization. Please put yoga and meditiation tips up!! I would love to read about your practice and what poses and meditations can benefit women and girls the most.

Peace and love,
