Chakra Renewal and Vinyasa Flow Workshops
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
Spring Sacral Chakra Flow – Rebirth and Renewal
By transitioning from old (Winter) to new (spring) you will capture and direct the energy created from longer, warmer days, towards your goals and intentions
Freeing this energy paves the way for that wonderful internal shift for which Samantha’s yoga is known for
Stagnation of the energy body, built over time by limiting by thoughts, blocks our natural ability to create in our lives (be it stronger, healthier relationships, abundance via an injection of energy at work or setting clear life purposes).
You will also work on deep inner reflection via:
Deep the ancient, healing practice of mindfulness
Pranayama (movement of the breath body)
Hatha (traditional yoga)
On a physical level, since we're working on deep twists, hip openers and releasing the lower spine, this workshop will be beneficial for those who work in an office, spending large portions of the day seated and also cyclists and runners as you will mobilise otherwise static / tight muscle groups.
This workshop is part of the “chakra renewal program” which Samantha teaches on her retreats.
