In depth | Yoga and the Chakras Workshop
Join us for our half day ‘Yoga and the Chakras’ Workshop that dives deep into the mysteries of the chakras; the psycho-energetic centres of our being. We will be exploring the most popular chakra system from the yogic tradition (the six chakra system).
The chakra system can be seen both as:
- a tool for understanding the different levels of the human being, from gross to subtle; and
- a tool for developing awareness.
We will explore both the history and theory of the chakra system, but also practical insight through a guided practice of hatha yoga – the traditional form of yoga specifically designed to align the energies of the body and help us develop intimacy with the chakras.
You will receive comprehensive materials so you can continue your learning and practice at home.
You will learn:
The history of the chakra system as introduced by the yogis and the place of the chakra system within the tantric path.
How an understanding & intimacy with the chakras can benefit us physically, mentally and emotionally.
Each chakra represents a specific frequency in the ocean of universal energy. We will learn about the unique characteristics of each chakra and the specific resonance that stimulation of each chakra connects us with.
Practical insight: We will conclude the workshop with a practice of Hridaya Hatha Yoga – a practice specifically designed to align the subtle energy centres of our being and a method of gaining direct knowledge of the chakras.
We are offering a scholarship place on this workshop, open to persons with limited financial resources. To apply simply message us explaining why you feel inspired to join.
We will contact the successful applicant two weeks prior to the workshop.
