What is a 'Chakra'?
In Indian thought, there are seven centres of spiritual power found in the human body. From the base of the spine, all the way up to the crown of the head. Each energy centre (or, Chakra) represents different human qualities and spiritual powers.
Shanti will be using a combination of asana (postures) and pranayama (breathing techniques) to tone and balance these energy centres. She’ll also be touching on the crystals associated to each chakra. Each class will end with a bespoke Yoga Nidra (guided relaxation) to deeply nourish and restore.
Note - a small pack of crystals will be available to purchase in the studio, or you can bring your own.
Here's a sneak peak at what to expect each week:
Root Chakra - Muladhara
I AM - grounding into our strength and rooting to rise up we’ll focus on the energy at the base of the spine and out below the body.
Sacral Chakra - Svadisthana
I FEEL - flowing with the energy surrounding the hips, sacrum and sex organs, we’ll explore poses to allow a free flow of creativity and sensuality.
Solar Plexus Chakra - Manipura
I WILL - we’ll focus on gently activating the region around the navel responsible for digestion, metabolism and energy. This will support a positive sense of self and purpose.
Heart Chakra - Anahata
I LOVE - encouraging and opening in the upper chest and back we’ll transition into the bridge between lower and higher chakras. The heart will guide us to energies of love, compassion and acceptance.
Throat Chakra - Vissudha
I SPEAK - deeply relaxing the throat, neck and jaw to access our truth, our verbal and non-verbal communication.
Third Eye - Ajna
I KNOW - turning inwards to our ‘perception centre’ above and between the physical eyes, we’ll use poses to tap into our intuition and imagination.
Crown Chakra - Sahasrara I UNDERSTAND - bringing awareness to the crown of the head and above the body for a clear and direct spiritual connection.
