Lisa Sarasohn's workshops flow from her quest for the Sacred Feminine blended with her experience practicing and teaching yoga.
She has been a Kripalu Yoga instructor since 1979 and is also trained as a yoga and bodywork therapist.
From 1981 to 1988, Lisa served on staff at Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health in Lenox, MA. During this time, she led yoga classes for thousands of guests, conducted a practice in bodywork therapy, designed workshops on many aspects of holistic health, and trained yoga teachers and bodyworkers.
In the course of her continuing yoga studies, Lisa learned how cultures around the world have valued the body's center as sacred. Delving deeper into this subject revealed connections between the body's center and qualities of the soul, the extent of women's power in family and society, and the degree of a culture's reverence for Sacred Feminine.

Drawing on ancient wisdom and contemporary practice, we'll attend to our bellies' well-being. We'll engage in experiential learning, energizing the body-mind transformation that supports healing.
With creative and playful activities, and strengthened by our mutual support, we'll develop our relationship with the healing life force already dwelling within us.
Please note: The information and activities offered in this course are for educational purposes only and are not intended nor should be used as a substitute for proper health care. If you need health care, be sure to seek the appropriate diagnostic and treatment services.
1. First and foremost, my goal is to create a supportive community for you and for your learning.
I've designed the activities accompanying each lesson to support your experiential learning about a body-centered process of healing. I urge you to complete these activities and post your comments, reflections, and questions on the course's web page before the next scheduled teleseminar.
I heartily encourage you to make use of the forums, teleseminars, and other opportunities for interaction. Participating actively, we can support each other's healing process.
2. Beyond creating a supportive learning community, my goal is to introduce you to information and skills you can use to support your well-being in concert with whatever health care services and treatments may be necessary and appropriate.
This course is the first part of an ongoing process through which you embody the Sacred Feminine by energizing your body's center with breath, image, story, and movement.
As a first step, this course focuses on befriending your body's center and learning yoga-based movement and breathing exercises that will form the core of your practice. Even if developing a movement practice isn't for you at this time, you'll still find a process that engages and rewards your participation.
Our first lesson brings ancient prophecy together with astronomy and sacred geometry — including Joseph Campbell's writing on "the mystery number of the Goddess" — to explore the connection between the year 2012 and the emergence of the Sacred Feminine.
You begin developing a practice for embodying the Sacred Feminine by honoring and energizing your body's center.
Each lesson blends experiential learning through reflection and creative expression with instruction in movement and breath. Every lesson guides you to work with words and images to develop an ever more intimate knowledge of and appreciation for your body's center as the source of your soul-power and the sourcepoint of the Sacred Feminine.
At the same time, the lessons provide opportunities to investigate the ways that society and culture have shaped your experience of your body's center.
