Transform life's wounds into a tool for personal transformation and purposeful service.



A 3-Month Online Immersion



Sometimes, even the most wild, empowered, and free need support. Guidance. Techniques and strategies to support themselves and those they love.  

Perhaps you know you have unresolved traumatic experiences, and you want to finally open the closet and do the work to free yourself of their influence. Maybe you are going through deep grief from love lost. Or are ready for a major life transition and need some clarity and support. 

Maybe you feel (like many humans do) that you’ve lost your true path – allowing yourself to be dragged around by outside forces and have started to lose your spark, your confidence, your sense of Self. Lost in the chaos. Lost without a clear direction of where to go from here or how to manage your life in a way that is fulfilling.

Or perhaps you are just ready to confront the shadow and transform shame into radical self love. You are a leader - used to holding, being strong, and making sacrifices for those around you. It’s time for YOU to be held. To fill yourself up. To finally have the philosophical blueprint and tribe of support to shed the layers that are ready to fall.

If any of this at all sounds like you, then the good news is…

You have a tribe waiting to support you.

You are not alone in experiencing these feelings and these struggles. Many strong, empowered “souls-on-fire” feel the way you do now. They have the same fears, mental blocks, and anxieties about the past, present, and future. (And together we can heal more fully – remember that)

Here’s more good news. You can start off 2018 with the support, advice, and soul work you need to:

  • Take charge of your life with greater clarity – especially if you’ve been feeling disoriented or are living in a state of chaos

  • Transform your habits and thoughts, so you see yourself with greater compassion and understanding

  • Get more of what you want in your life – whether that’s more love, more abundance, more self-confidence, more clarity on your purpose, or to ground back into your sense of Self.

  • Confront and begin the process of finding gratitude for past trauma – from your childhood or elsewhere – that’s holding you back and holding you down

  • Free yourself from some of your deepest fears – whether it is a fear of loneliness, fear of pain, fear that you are unable to let go, or that the heartbreak you have now won’t shift. 

How is this possible? Because we’ve created a course made just for women like you: a course that helps you gain more control of your life...confront the demons in the closet...navigate smoothly through the turning points you are going through...and joyfully welcome the new year with clarity, confidence, tribe and renewed commitment to your spiritual path.


Introducing: the 3 Month Pain to Purpose Masterclass with Adi Shakti – An intensive look at the Self.


I'm Adi Shakti

In the last few years - I have started my own six-figure yoga company in the heart of the jungle on the Caribbean Sea and trained hundreds of yoga teachers. Started a non-profit organization whose focus is currently raising money for human trafficking victims in Kolkata, India. Opened a community center for the indigenous people in our region of Costa Rica. Traveled back and forth to India seven times and started construction on our off-grid house in Costa Rica. Celebrated 10 years of togetherness with my partner (I've had to dig deepest here - conscious relationship is a trip!). Produced a documentary film (The Conscious Art of the Hustle). Collaborated on opening a permaculture - conscious community - farm to table retreat center + training facility (you are always welcome!). And have cried many, many nights on the floor.

Confronting my shadow. Moving through my pain. Doing my own deep work. And making sh*t happen.

I'm known for being pretty controversial. I talk sex. And money. I'm pretty fiery and don't have much patience for the closed minded.

People either love me... or well... how do I put this...

I'm like a mama bear. And I'll fight for and protect the f*ck out of what is sacred to me. You are sacred to me.

I want the chance to know and love you. I want to see you. I want you to see me. I want us to go on this journey together.

Adi Shakti a wise, fierce soul with a passion for service and teaching what she believes in. It is an honor to have trained with her, I have learned more than I ever imagined.
— Aris Alexandra, Live Be Yoga Journal Ambassador
Adi Shakti channels Divine Wisdom through a powerful, distinct portal of communication that truly transforms knowledge into understanding.
— Usha Anandi, Creatrix of Womben Wellness
Adi is unapologetically vulnerable and there is no quality more effective than this in a teacher.
— Sierra Frost
Adi Shakti’s words and teachings cut straight to the core. Her strength and compassion is potent medicine for all who are listening.

The Pain to Purpose MasterClass with Adi Shakti

This course is hands-on and practical. Years of planning, self study, and connecting with the fears and resistances of women like you have gone into creating the course, so you can be sure it’s packed with empowering, actionable lessons that you can put to use immediately.

It is a 3 month online course designed to bring you from confronting your pain to awakening clarity around your purpose.

SO WHAT’S IN THE Pain to Purpose MasterClass?


The Pain to Purpose MasterClass is made up of 6 core modules (more on that in a second!) which will give you the building blocks you need to deepen your understanding of the spiritual path through Yoga, Shadow Work, and Conscious Leadership to support deep transformation in your life - and in the lives of those you serve.

Each module (2 per month), you’ll spend between 3 - 15 hours watching pre-recorded videos, completing exercises in your journal, doing yogic practices, recommended reading and participating in live calls. So the time investment you’ll need for the course isn’t excessive! You will decide how deep you go into the  course material.

All of the information will be sent directly to your email. You will have access to the Online Dashboard - and your progress will be tracked there. Super easy.

The Pain to Purpose MasterClass also comes with some nice bonuses, so keep reading.

Adi’s giant heart and drive to do good work in the world have taken her unimaginable places inside and out. I can’t wait to see what’s next for this dynamic, strong, centered woman. She will certainly continue to take the world in her loving arms and transform it.
— Bhakti White, Shambhavanda Senior Teacher

What's Included in Each Module?

Educational and inspiring video lectures with me. We explore practical yogic philosophy and techniques, and learn to apply them to real, raw and crucial life lessons. I'll talk my marriage. My struggles with growth as an entrepreneur. My grief. My doubt. My life. a way that I have never shared before.


Live video seminars guided by yours truly. I will hold the space, share my own stories, and invite you to be seen in your vulnerability. As we work through the course material - it is your opportunity to share. To explore what intimacy means. To finally allow yourself to be held by a tribe of sisters hungry to be known in their own human experience. We go deep in these sessions. They are the next best thing to being at one of our Live trainings here in Costa Rica.   

LifeGuides. These pdf LifeGuides are maps for you as you journal, track measurable progress with the course material, and explore 'svadyaya' or self study. These guides are your at home coursework, and they are designed to challenge you personally, spiritually, professionally and otherwise - depending on the Module. 


Access to our private Online Community. Only those who are currently enrolled or have completed a Passion Yoga Intensive are invited here. This is your place to share resources, ask questions, and get support directly from our team.

Recommended readings. I'll share my library with you. With each Module - I will suggest readings from enlightened masters and thought leaders which have supported me in my own journey inward and upward. I highly recommend that you dive into these texts as a complement to the course work - but it is totally optional to buy and read the books.


What's in the course?


Module 1: The Past - Unveiling the Wisdom of our Wounds

We dive right in with our first Module. We are looking at our relationship to our mother and father. We are looking at how we were taught to 'love', where we weren't loved unconditionally as children, and we start to take responsibility for our core beliefs as they were imprinted onto us. We re-examine our mental and behavioral patterning and conditioning, and we take conscious steps to choose how we want to move forward. Without awareness of how our past is affecting us now - it is extremely difficult to shift its power in our lives. And of course - we will look to the yogic philosophy for guidance, support, and inspiration as we explore this sometimes heartbreaking but ultimately liberating work. 


Module 2: The Body - Feeling the Portal from Physical to Mystical

We take a look at our doorway to the spiritual super highway. Without a healthy, flexible, strong, and balanced physical body - it is more difficult to move into healing the more mystical elements of the self. We will learn how to identify your unique body constitution from an Ayurveda perspective and look at how we can adjust our lifestyle to optimize wellness. We will explore movement as a mechanism for developing stillness, and we will learn how our physical bodies carry the stories of our ancestors. Through the body - we heal generations. This module goes deep! 

Just as poetry uses words to go beyond language, yoga uses the body to go beyond form
— J. Bowman


Module 3: The Mind - Knowing Freedom through Simplicity + Discipline

In this Module, we begin to observe the mind. With the foundation of a healthy body, we are able to explore the subtleties of a meditation practice. We will use Patanjali's yoga sutras as the guide to moving into deeper states of stillness in the mind. You will have Lifestyle homework - where you will be invited to 'clean house' both externally and internally to invite more silence and stillness into your daily living. We will explore a variety of practices for beginners to more advanced meditators and commit to a meditation log. We will learn to integrate the philosophy and explore how to move towards purifying the layers of mind. 


Module 4: The Heart - Unlocking the Secrets of the Emotional Body

In this Module, we dive deeply into Yogic anatomy and start to explore the wisdom of our nervous system as our gateway to the divine. We will learn about emotional intelligence, where emotions show up in our energetic centers, and we will explore what it means to commit to emotional freedom. You will learn techniques for moving emotional energy as it surfaces in your system, and we will discuss how we can use the wisdom of our emotional body as a guide for profound spiritual work and opening. Our minds become tools for manifesting the call of the heart, rather than the mind working so very hard to silence the emotional system. A powerful Module.


Module 5: The Other - Inviting in Deep Radical Intimacy

Yoga is union. The underlying principle of the philosophy is that we are all essentially one. The experience of 'the other' is rich in reflective teachings.  It shows us where we deny ourselves, how we perpetuate patterns that keep us in a state of suffering, and where we can open to more forgiveness, healing, and unconditional love. Through meaningful sex, conscious communication, honoring our own emotional wisdom, and supporting the other's freedom - we unlock the greatest of teachings. We will explore techniques for profound authentic relationship - whether that be with intimate lovers, friends, family, or those we serve.


Module 6: The Path - Transforming Passion to Purpose 

With a deep connection and love of self comes the natural ability to serve at a phenomenal capacity. Whether that be through consciously raising our children, holding space for our families, friends and others, or starting non-profit organizations that touch millions. To be of service is an opportunity to experience the divine, and we will dive into our calling and how to most meaningfully manifest it. We will look at the mystical side of gaining clarity around our purpose as well as the practical side of conscious business, social activism, and showing up as warriors for peace.
