Masterclass - Explore the subtle Body
Chakra Energy System
Hari aum Yoga Sangha....
I look forward to ushering in a fresh wave of inspiration to infuse your yoga practice and journey. I will be holding the space for this dedicated group of practitioners to go deeper into classical Hatha yoga practices (asana, pranayama, mudras, bandhas and cleansing kriyas) mantra chanting and meditation.
This year the focus will be on discovering and exploring the Chakra System - an energy map/framework for the subtle body which can be drawn on to go deeper into the richness of yoga psychology. The subtle body influences our health and well-being, mind-states and behaviour.
Through their purification, balance and energization we can come to understand why we are the way we are and build a toolkit of practices that empower us to live more conscious and connected lives.
We gather in sacred space each month in the stunning home studio space overlooking the ocean where we can tune into the elemental forces and collective energy.
Tools for tapping the Energetics
Mantra chanting – various chants.
Asana – develop awareness of energy/prana and its effects on body & mind.
Mudras and bandhas to clear energy blockages and strengthen the 5 Energies or Vayus.
Pranayama – progressive development across heating, balancing and tranquilizing techniques.
Meditations drawn from the Tantras that harness breath, prana and concentration to expand inner awareness.
