The Rainbow Shakti, a course in self-in-volvement 

A course of 7 x 7 hour Sundays, every 7 weeks from 10:00 - 17:00


"What you seek is seeking you"
Rumi

This is an invitation...

  • to join me and 8 other yoginis to form a circle of learning through Sadhana (yoga practice.)
  • to create space in your life for some self-involvement.
  • to embrace all of your Self.
  • to discover who you are by discovering who you are not.
*
There is nothing more exciting than getting to know our "true Self", reconnecting to our inner spark!
As we know from our class experiences, one of the best ways to gain knowledge about ourselves is through the practice of yoga, yet often a lack of "yogic tools" mean that our home practice is slow, uninspired or non-existent.
This course has been designed to ignite your home practice and inspire you to incorporate more yoga into your daily life, to live from the heart and recognise Shakti in all things.
In each session we will create a safe and stable place to practice a particular mantra, flow, and meditation, pertaining to one of the elements, one of the Hindu Goddesses. We will learn about the workings and philosophy of our chakra system, altars and ritual, the elements and the many faces of Shakti.
Each course day will be accompanied by a playlist, self-exploratory exercises and suggestions for embodied movement. An on-line circle of fellow students will support each other practice.

This course will start on Sunday September the 15th and will continue into June 2020. It is intentionally spread out to give you the time to absorb and practice the content of the teachings.

This course will include:

  1. 7 full days of circle teaching
  2. playlists on spotify for mantra and movement practice
  3. group support with facebook group/page


  • Dates: September 15th - November 3rd - December 15th - January 26th -
    March 8th - April 26th and June 14th • all lessons from 10:00-17:00.

This is what the last years participants had to say about the course:


I  did this course thinking it was teaching me yoga, how to do more yoga movements at home etc. I was so wrong?? It taught me so much more, yes there was yoga, but it was much more about how to use ancient wisdom about Goddesses in our daily lives, sharing our experiences with other supportive women, dance your heart out and whole, learn about mantras, have a soft place to fall and rest and learn about yourself through the reflection of others.

Jacqui's course is the best gift I have given to myself this year. Every class is magical in a different way. I learned a lot about myself and about yoga.
Tatyana

I signed up for this course because of something Jacqui told me in passing on the street. I have known Jacqui for years. I am not exactly a regular attendant at Sunshine but I have always enjoyed her classes when I have made time for them. But I am in the middle of a huge life transition right now and what she told me on the street that day struck a deep chord. I decided to sign up for the course and to learn more. This is not what you might expect from yoga, but it may be what you need. Jacqui reminded me why the art of storytelling is so powerful, and make no mistake, Jacqui is a master storyteller. She helps you find your connection to timeless narratives and at the same time question the narrative you have crafted for yourself and whether it still fits. Everyone I have met in this course is asking themselves the same questions: Am I where I belong? Am I happy? How do I embrace change in my life, both good and bad? Part asana instruction, part mantra and meditation, part exercise, part group therapy .. .this course is a lot of things. And if you are open to it, it can be a life-changing experience that you never forget. I know I won't.

T  he Rainbow Shakti Course to me can be summed up into one word (ok maybe 2): CONNECTION & ACCEPTATION connection with yourself, with ALL of yourself even those "ugly" parts that you like to keep hidden but instead of chastising, ACCEPT and know that it's (more than ok) to be you.
Through Jacqui's wonderful, down-to-earth and extremely knowledgeable teachings I've learned (and still continue to...) to connect, accept and love myself. Thank you. I truly feel this is a gift that I've given myself to help and support my transformation process. Every time I look forward to meeting with this group of amazingly, loving ladies for a day of connection, acceptation, fun, laughter and trust. Ok I must stop now. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Rainbow Shakti Course.
Sandra

I run my own group coaching trainings but this is where I get some of my fuel, power, inspiration and more. A wonderful group of women led by the charismatic, emphatic and wise Jacqui. I'll be there again for the next round.
Manuela

Many people have asked me why am I doing it twice? Well, even when the concept is the same, each course or lesson at Sunshine is unique. If you are looking for authentic human connections ... this is a tailored place.
Roula

This is what participants of the 2017-2018 course had to say about the course:


Here are a few promises I dare to make. You will feel loved. You might cry. You will laugh your pants off. You will feel over the moon. You will sleep like a baby. And you will feel special. You will gloom... And you will never be the same again.
Laura

Learning to talk about emotions that hurt was one of my biggest struggles, but when I started doing it, I immediately noticed it made me lighter and happier.
Roos

W hat I love about Jacqui's teachings is that they are not limited to the realms of the mind, but travel within and throughout the body, integrating emotional and psychosomatic intelligence which brings us closer to the true purpose of yoga, union with everything that is, no judgement, no preference, no discrimination.
Teo

Paradoxically, this is a “perfect” circle to meet our “imperfections” without judgment or blame. It is a gentle shelter (sharanam) to explore our boundless centre. This is also what Sunshine yoga means to me in general. Being a regular student for six years, I can easily witness the profound transformation that has reshaped my life for ever.
Roula

Jacqui also motivates you to get on the mat at home to move, chant, meditate or get more involved in the subject. For me it is great that I can do this in my own way and at my own tempo in a comfortable and safe environment.
Yennie

I miss those Sundays where we’d come together and take the time to take care of ourselves. That’s how it felt for me, sort of like a maintenance check: how am I doing, how am I responding to that and what do I need?
