I’ve completed four courses with Big Shakti. I was drawn to them in the hope that they would take what I had learned in yoga over the years to a new level of refinement. And this is what they have done, though in a very down-to-earth way. Classes are easy to follow and relaxed. Jayne and Dr. Swami Shankardev are always unpretentious and friendly. They’ve added most generously to my knowledge and practice from their own deep storehouses of wisdom and experience.
Where I wanted a better grasp of the philosophies and theory underpinning my practice, they took the complex and difficult material and drew out the essence to make it accessible. Where I was looking for more powerful practices, they helped to ease me into them. That, in my view, is good teaching.
In “Facing the Shadow”, by its nature, a personally challenging course, participants were supported and loved, and I for one was so much braver as a result.
Each time, I enjoyed the classes, found the Q&A sessions illuminating. The guided meditations have become a vital part of my daily life.
