Guide to dating a yoga goddess

Sjoo claims that the concept of raising Kundalini energy, so fundamental to yoga philosophy and practice, originated with these yogic priestesses.

She points out that many prehistoric figurines show women merged with tree’s, with snakes coiling around their bodies, and emerging from their heads.

Many show women seated with eyes closed, legs crossed over one another or standing feet together with arms raised.

Yogini’s and dakini’s became “witches,” “ogresses,” “demonesses,” or “temple harlots”.

But their teachings, as Sjoo and Noble contend, were not extinguished – they were co–opted to become the new “secret” knowledge of a new spiritual elite, the Brahmin priesthood.

Here the focus is not on perfecting yogic postures but on experiencing energy “flow”.

She urges women to reclaim the “natural, biological ways of accessing and experiencing the yogic power of our ancient fore-sisters”.
