Chakra Awakening and Vinyasa Flow Workshops
In this Vinyasa Flow workshop, geared towards all levels, you
will engage both the first and second Chakras.
Very often in Yoga and meditation, we focus on the higher Chakras.
However it's from the lower Chakras we create our foundation, without
which, it's difficult to proceed in a healthy, productive and balanced manner.
The first chakra, (or root) is the most physical - to do with our strength and stability
You will be taken through a strong, earthy, grounding standing sequence to awaken
the legs, joints and pelvic floor with complete awareness, mindfulness and attention.
The Root Chakra will be stimulated by a series of:
Asana (traditional Hatha and also Vinyasa) with strong balance & hip opener focus
The deep ancient, healing practice of mindfulness and meditation
The Sacral Chakra, situated below the naval (the Hara in Martial Arts) is our seat of free will, abundance, creativity. It’s a storehouse of past emotions and thus calls for “letting go”.
Sacral Chakra Vinyasa Flow Themes:
Deep twists of the lower spine
Through which we access the Liver Meridian line, the organ of detoxification which, according to Chinese medicine predominates this time of year (hence the term “spring clean”). On an energetic level twists represents letting go, squeezing out of that which no longer serves, purification and deep inner cleansing in order to let in the new via:
Delicious hip openers
By stretching and stimulating the associated glands, muscles and nerves you release the potent energy of the Sacral Chakra, the subtle seat of change to achieve in your intention setting
By stimulating the Root Chakra you cultivate the art of steadiness (first in the body
followed by the mind and spirit) and thus find greater ease in achieving intentions.
This stablising, energising sequence for the Mulhadhara and Sacral Chakra will give true meaning hip openers and balances an order to let go, renew and journey forward
