PARVATI VICTORIA GOODWIN, E-RYT 500, Holistic Coach & Healer, Yoga Teacher & Wiccan High Priestess
Parvati Victoria has been practicing yoga since 2000, when she discovered that a consistent regimen of yoga, meditation and yoga philosophy could help her manage chronic pain. In 2006, she began teaching to help others discover the joy, power and magic of yoga.
Today, Parvati is certified in Vinyasa Yoga 200 hour, Hatha-Tantric Yoga 500 hour from the Himalayan Tradition, Kripalu Let Your Yoga Dance 160 hour, Children’s Yoga, Pilates, and Yin Yoga. In addition to teaching students of all levels, she has guided many new instructors through yoga teacher training.
Parvati is a strong believer in the value of a daily personal yoga practice with a deep focus on chakras, the subtle energy centers in the body. Her passion and calling have led her to extended stays in India, where she has spent undisturbed time in ashrams practicing yoga, breathing techniques, meditation, chakras, yoga philosophy and Ayurveda (a healing science from India).
Parvati is also a trained Reiki Master and a LaHo Chi Master (a healing system from Taoism). In 2017, her combined passion and strengths of intuitive healing, chakra studies, yoga teaching and Wicca studies led her to become a Spiritual Mentor with a deep focus on chakra healing and connecting with the Divine Feminine. As the owner of Sacred Empowerment Mentoring, she combines her extensive knowledge and training to help people change their lives for the better—physically, mentally and spiritually.
As a yoga teacher, Parvati warmly welcomes students into her gentle, dynamic practice, guiding them on an internal journey to access the strength, love and magic within.
JOURNEY OF YOUR CHAKRAS – JOURNEY OF YOUR SOUL
I am a firm believer that our biography creates our biology. How we live our lives equals the health and wealth of our lives.
Sacred Empowerment Mentoring was developed from my own personal journey into healing and empowerment. In 2000, I was diagnosed with Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, a debilitating chronic pain syndrome. At that time, I was living an extremely stressful lifestyle. In addition, I had low self esteem and was in an abusive marraige
Traditional western medicine was unable to offer a cure, only paid medication which had many side effects. I ended up being disabled with chronic pain, panic attacks, migraines, depression and divorced.
I went on a journey looking for healing and eventually found a doctor who also practiced alternative medicine. He enrolled me in an Eight Week Course on Stress Reduction at Jefferson University.
This course included meditation and yoga which guided me into my actual body and the process of healing began. This was a new life style for me. I now began each day with meditation and a gentle yoga.
Due to my ongoing search of healing and empowerment, I began taking courses on chakras and energy medicine and I became certified as an energy healer. During this time, my natural psychic skills exemplified and I began experiencing visions and strong sensations prior to events happening. At that time, I was not sure how to handle this new insight.
In 2006, I took a 164 hour course at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, which is now titled, Let Your Yoga Dance. In 2008, I became a certified yoga instructor. Over the years, I became certified in Yin Yoga, Kids Yoga and received my 500 hour advanced Hatha-Tantric yoga certification.
In 2013, I began yearly trips to India. While in India, I spend most of my first time living a very ascetic lifestyle in ashrams, which are similar to monasteries. I arise each morning at 5:30 a.m., and spend the day in meditation, prayer, chanting, yoga, and I participae in panchakarma, an intense purification and cleansing system from Ayurvedic Medicine. Ayurveda is a 4000 years old healing science from India and is the sister science of yoga. Ayurveda harnesses the body’s natural healing powers. After my first trip to India, I began leading international and domestic yoga retreats.
Through yoga, Ayurveda and my spiritual practices, the pain condition is managed, I no longer have panic attacks nor am I on disability. I now surround myself in loving relationshsips, and have transformed into a fiercely self empowered woman who is loves to empower others!
My journey into healing took me deeper into spirituality and into the religions of Christianity, Hinduism, and Wicca. Wicca is a religious study of nature and honors a great mother goddess as well as a father god. I am now a Wiccan High Priestess.
In Sacred Empowerment Mentoring, you will be guided on a non-denominational sacred journey of self-development through the philosophies of yoga, connecting with nature, and connecting with all of creation. It’s an intense, deep, program of sacred self discovery.
Through Sacred Empowerment Mentoring, my clients are able to bust through fears and accomplish their highest dreams and visions.
It is with great respect and honor that I wish to acknowledge all of my teachers and their teachers.
Namaste and Blessed Be
