Channel more confidence, creativity, and joy in your life with a basic understanding of your body’s energy centres.
Join me on the mat for the third in a series of workshops looking at the basics of the chakra system through specific yoga postures.
According to yoga tradition, the subtle body is a part of you that you can’t see or touch; it’s where your energy flows, which is why it’s also referred to as the energy body. There are seven key points in the subtle body that are thought to be vortexes of energy, known as chakras ( wheels in Sanskrit). When energy becomes blocked in a chakra, it triggers physical, mental, or emotional imbalances that manifest in symptoms such as anxiety, lethargy, or poor digestion. A varied and regular yoga practice can help free up energy and stimulate an imbalanced chakra, paving the way for that magical internal shift for which yoga is known.
In this workshop we will be looking at at third chakra- Manipura (lustrous gem). In Chakra one we worked on grounding and self care. In chakra two we worked on sensuality and emotional expression. In this session we will working on courage, strength and will power. This chakra is located at the core, where your body’s fire and strength lies.
