Four week chakra course with Anita Smith
Deepen your understanding of the energy body by exploring the seven main energy centres known as chakras.
The chakras are subtle energy centres located within the body and govern us on an energetic, emotional, physical and mental level. When we connect with these energy centres we have the opportunity for healing, transformation and growth. The chakras receive, process, store and express life force energy and if these energy centres are out of balance, deficient or excessive there can be imbalances in your personal life and also in your interaction with others.
During these four 2-hour workshops you will deepen your awareness and knowledge of the seven most commonly accepted chakras. We will discuss the elements associated with each chakra and explore how to stimulate these vital points using yoga poses, meditation and other methods.
We will cover the following:
• discuss the seven most commonly accepted chakras from the Hindu philosophy
• look at what a chakra is, how it functions and why it is important
• explore how the chakras affect your physical presence, pleasure and enjoyment, willpower, happiness, communication, imagination and consciousness
• discuss the basic associations of each chakra
• observe the information the chakras offer us and use this information to your benefit
• look at how we can stimulate these energy centres using asana (both yin and yang yoga poses), visualisation, meditation, affirmations, pranayama (breath exercises), mudras (hand gestures), mantras (sacred sound) and essential oils
• create a yin yoga practice and a yang yoga practice to encourage harmony in the chakras
