What makes this training program unique?

Shiva Shakti founders, Angela Rauscher and Jan Orland Go are devoted practitioners with over 35 years combined experience in the industry. Angela is trained in Hatha Yoga with a professional focus on the Chakra (energy) system and subtle body; Jan is a Registered Nurse, who is trained in Vinyasa Yoga with deeper study into biomechanics and kinesiology of yoga asana (postures).

The essential quality of this training is to create a balance between receiving the benefit of a deeper experience of yoga and being inspired to actively contribute the fruits of that experience to your community and the world. In this way, we evoke the energy and essence of the cosmic balance of Shiva and Shakti. We will help you to cultivate your authentic voice and share with others in a safe, comprehensive and meaningful way.  


This training is suitable for students who want to deepen their practice, and for those who want to become professional yoga teachers.
