Yoga classes w/c 4 June

The wonder of you

In this second week of my 40 days of wonder series we’ll be celebrating the ‘wonder of you’. 

During class we’ll flow through asanas that activate energy in all of the seven major chakras, bringing a sense of wholeness and confidence to your practice. 

Sahasrara, the crown chakra, is about our connection to the universe, its colour is deep purple and we’ll focus on this chakra in tadasana, mountain pose and sirsasana, headstand.

Ajna, the third eye chakra, is the centre for our intuition and creativity, we’ll pay attention to our drishtis, focal points, as well as hold some asanas with our eyes closed. 

Vishuddha, the throat chakra, is about our right to speak and be heard, cobra and sphinx poses are both excellent for activating this chakra. 

Anahata is the heart chakra, this is about love and self love, back bend poses activate this chakra. We’ll take dancer, natarajasana, because of its grace, elegance and also because it helps us stomp on the goblin of ignorance, as Shiva did in traditional mythology. 

Manipura, the solar plexus chakra, is centre for confidence and self worth. Here we’ll call on the story of Garuda the eagle to remind us that we are all divine and to connect with our inner radiance. 

Svadhistana, the sacral chakra, connects us to our sexuality and sensuality, I’ll invite you to connect with the goddess within in Deviasana, goddess pose. 

Muladhara, the root chakra, grounds us and invites us to connect with mother earth, we’ll do this in tree pose, vrkasana. 

And there are lots of other yogic treats as well!
