Options for outdoor sessions are happening NOW
Lavanga Latika is Sanskrit for "one with delicate limbs to clings to God." It is a way of addressing the Divine Feminine.
The name was given to me by my teacher in 2004 and since then I've usually only used one half of it, "Lavanga."
But about 5-6 years ago, as is my usual, I was wrestling with the idea of re-inventing myself and my business. I was looking back on my 30+ years of training, experience and all the knowledge I've collected. I realized I was only sharing a small portion of what I know with the world. What was holding me back? I knew a part of it was self-doubt and fear. I was afraid of putting my whole authentic self out there for fear of being rejected in some way.
But at the same time, I was also getting pretty restless from doing the same things I've been doing for so long. It's not that I quit loving those things, but I was ready to "diversify my portfolio," so to speak.
Then, my first thought was to mainly focus on maybe 3 or 4 of them, and if so, what should they be? I kept going back and forth about what those would be and why did I choose those things.
Finally, one day I was speaking to a friend about this, listed all the things I know how to do and/or teach, and they said, "why not share all of them?"
I knew they were right.
And while at first that seemed like a very scary thought, I knew it's what I had to do. I could not keep only revealing part of myself. What a burden that is! And at that moment, I knew what I needed to call my business.
Even though in person I still go by "Lavanga," my business is named "Lavanga Latika," because for the first time in my life, I am ready to share more than just a portion of my skills and knowledge to the world. What you see here is what you get. I'm not afraid anymore, and boy is that liberating!
My hope is that you will find something useful for you in one, two or more of my "selves." And in this way, I can be a part of your own unique journey to become the whole self you were created to be!
