Stretch Your Shakti
Are you feeling stressed out after living through over two years of global upheaval?
Is your body sore, your soul tired, your nervous system fried and your business burnt out?
How about working more in tune with your own energy and the energy of your clients?
Exploring and healing your relationship with the feminine?
Becoming more spiritually and emotionally grounded?
Being confident to include meditation and ritual in your work?
Becoming an accredited Meditation Teacher?
This is more than a meditation training.
This is a deep dive into your shakti energy.
Into holding space in an entirely new way.
This is a 3-month online group meditation training
to raise our own shakti feminine, creative energy.
To heal our Sister wounds in a supportive community
and become a beacon for other people in our lives.
As well as gaining the skills
and certification to teach others…
What is Shakti anyway?
I’m Victoria Cunningham, finalist in the Health & Wellbeing sector of The Great British Entrepreneur Awards 2020, founder of UK-based teacher training organisation StretchBodyMind and the creator of award-winning charity Stretch & Play and I’ve worked with shakti all my life.
Shakti is defined as “the female principle of divine energy” and to me, it is inherently female because it is all about creation – whether this is the creation of another life or the creation of a new ideology.
Unlike our western view, the feminine is not weak but instead shakti is a force to be reckoned with. The word itself means “power”. Therefore, to stretch your shakti means to awaken your inner goddess and utilise your sacred feminist to get sh*t done.
Having developed courses such as the 200-hour StretchBodyMind Yoga Teacher Training and the online course Stretch Your Biz which required more masculine structures and Shiva energy it is great to share my Shakti side in this course.
BE WARNED: This work is powerful!
The last time I ran this course I manifested my baby boy Alisdair at the age of 46!🤯 I’m not saying you are going to birth a child after this but you will definitely birth a new way of being with your clients.
This 3-month live training has been designed with the three pillars of
as these 3 elements are the cornerstone of my Yoga Teaching and Pilates Instruction and are an essential element of my Teacher Training courses.
And I have discovered that they apply perfectly to meditation as well!
- Who are You?
- The Enneagram
- Ayurvedic Doshas
- The Chakras
- Teaching without Dogma
- Mindfulness Meditation
- Yoga Nidra
- Kundalini & Mantra Meditation
- Becoming a Leader on & offline

Stretch Your Shakti begins in:
We start this LIVE training with the New Moon
on Tuesday 22nd November 2022
and run until 14th February 2023.
Before joining I had stress and overwhelm almost to the point of burnout as well as difficulties finding space and time to focus on my own meditation practice.
I had no idea when I started it what an impact it would have on me or how profound some of the experiences I had would be. In such a short time I feel like I have learned a huge amount.
I would absolutely recommend Stretch your Shakti to anyone who is looking to explore a range of meditation styles or would like to know more about the feminine aspects of the practice.
I have found that in comparison to other trainings Stretch Your Shakti had an air of freedom surrounded by self-security.
Victoria is amazing to work with from her in-depth knowledge on her chosen subjects to her passion-filled classes they inspire.
I now feel even more in tune with myself and my surroundings. There was an self awareness there before now however it’s like it has been tuned into the correct channel.
For anyone who wants
to start/add to their self-care and welfare tool-belt, it’s a must.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is involved during the 3-month programme?
Each week you will receive a new lesson in the StretchBodyMind Online Studio exploring who you are through the lens of the Enneagram, Ayurveda, the Chakras and Human Design; how to teach authentically using Mindfulness Meditation, Kundalini Meditation, Mantra Meditation and Yoga Nidra amongst others; and becoming a Leader both on and offline by exploring the Goddesses, the Moon and how to create rituals and hold space for others in meditation. There will be a comprehensive Teacher Training Manual and homework to complete each week in order to achieve your Certification. (You will be assigned an accountability buddy to practice with each week and you will attend Live practice calls twice a month). You will participate in three Ceremony Calls with Victoria (which will be recorded) and receive a 1:1 coaching call with her at the end of the programme.
Is this course accredited?
Yes! The course is a 100-hour accredited Meditation Teacher Training by Yoga Alliance Professionals and upon completion of the course, and successful submission of your homework, you will receive the title of Specialist Yoga Teacher – Meditation. This will allow you to market yourself as a Meditation Teacher and to lead meditation classes in your area or online.
When are the Live Calls?
The monthly Ceremony Calls with Victoria will take place on Tuesday 22nd November at 6pm – 8pm (UK time); Tuesday 20th December at 6pm – 8pm (UK time) and Tuesday 17th January at 6pm – 8pm (UK time).

All calls will be recorded and uploaded to the StretchBodyMind Online Studio for you to catch up with in your own time. However, I recommend you try and make it to as many of the live calls as possible so you can connect with Victoria and your fellow Shakti Sisters!
Do I need to have Facebook to join?
No, you do not need to have Facebook as we have a dedicated online studio where the course materials (including recordings of our three Zoom Ceremony Calls) will be hosted and you will be encouraged to set up a WhatsApp group with your Shakti Sister for accountability during the course. However, additional content and connection is available through the Facebook platform and you could always set a temporary profile for the course duration and to connect to your Shakti Sisters inside the sacred space.
