WELCOME LADIES. I AM J’ANAKI RA – HEALER AND YOGA TEACHER SPECIALISING IN WOM(B)EN EMPOWERMENT, AND WOMB YOGA.
Womb Yoga is a style of yoga that draws from various yoga practices into a yoga form that has just the right balance to nurture, nourish and mentor women of all ages and stages of life – from maiden to matriarch, to those entering menarche (menstruation) and to those who are in menopause.
Through Yoga Mama, my Red Tent Johannesburg group, my workshops and sacred retreats; I work with women to honour the timeless, respectable tradition of community where the young learn from the wise and the nurturers are themselves nurtured by a community of women.
With Yoga Mama and Red Tent, I aim to create a community of women who are strong in their divine femininity; who are happy, grounded, connected and healthy; and who not only nurture those in their lives but who nurture and honour themselves. Drawing on yoga practices such as Yoga Nidra – the art of relaxation; Sankalpa – working with the power of heart-placed intention; the yoga postures; and concepts such as balancing yin and yang, nourishing the body with the right food, working with energy and the universal laws; womb yoga – and wom(b)en empowerment – becomes a way of life.
RED TENT JOHANNESBURG – A SAFE SPACE FOR WOMEN TO COME TOGETHER TO SIMPLY BE
Rooted in the Red Tent Temple Movement this is a monthly gathering and Facebook community where women come together to share, cry, dance, celebrate and honor life as a woman.
We share our pains, our pleasures, our journeys. We come as we are, we share what we wish to, we are silent if we need to be, we care for each other, we love deeply, we heal, we express, we shout, we cry, we are the fullest expressions of our grandest selves, we turn inward to delve into our darkest depths, we flow, we move, we love, we celebrate, we honor. We are women.
Click here to join our community on Facebook and be a part of the movement. Come along to our Red Tent meetings and go on a journey of discovering your divine feminine power.
