When we practice Yin Yoga we’re not only opening up the physical body – we’re also tapping into the energetic body.
Our prana, or life force energy, flows through our body along energy channels – also known as nadis or meridians. These meridians travel through energy centres known as chakras.
There are 7 chakras:
- Root Chakra – Muladhara
- Sacral Chakra – Svadhistana
- Solar Plexus Chakra – Manipura
- Heart Chakra – Anahata
- Throat Chakra – Vishudda
- Third Eye Chakra – Ajna
- Crown Chakra – Sahasrara
Our ‘Yin Yoga for Chakra Balancing’ workshop will work through a sequence of long, deep holds in poses focusing on each energy centre starting from the base of the spine, up to the crown of the head.
Each pose will be held for 3 – 5 minutes and you’ll enjoy a mini meditation in each posture. This will give the physical body time to let go of any built up tension and allow a shift in the energetic body. We will start to release energetic blockages so that you feel more open, grounded and balanced.
The workshop will be held by candlelight, to calm the senses and allow you to focus internally. The room will be warm and inviting and we will have a range of props including bolsters, blocks and straps on hand to help make your experience comfortable.
We look forward to seeing you on your mat on July 23 to enjoy this blissful workshop.
