In the Yoga tradition, the human body has seven main energy centres called chakras. Chakra means wheel in Sanskrit and refers to vortices of energy that spin and vibrate within the energy (subtle) body. The seven major chakras radiate from different points along the spine forming a vertical axis which run from the base of the spine to the top of the head.
Taking an empowering approach to purifying the chakras, we will move through a series of poses sequenced according to the chakra system. We will explore the attributes of each of the seven energetic wheels from the root to the crown using bijja mantra, asana and affirmations, addressing our relationships with our parents, family, partners, those around us, as well as our teachers and our own selves. The practise will finish with pranayama and meditation, instigating a sense of wholeness, peace and shift in perception to make way for discovering these inherent qualities.
