Restorative Yoga To Balance Swadisthana Chakra
Sunday 24th March 6.30 -8.30pm
Balance your energy centers with this series of chakra based restorative yoga sessions. The Chakras are both fascinating and complex. An ancient system of healing, growth and transformation. Often depicted as wheels of energy which align the spine from crown to base. They form a map of your own inner world and are a useful framework to identify not only how your energy is expressed, but where your energy is over or underactive and how in turn that manifests as an imbalance in your physical, mental and emotional being. Each chakra has its own associations and correspondences to different parts of the body, glands, colours, sounds, shapes (yantras) and emotions to name a few.
In these sessions we will learn how to explore and balance your own chakras using asana, mudra, mantra, visualization, meditation and relaxation.
Ahh this is one of my favourites !!
Swadisthana is the Water chakra corresponding to the sacral plexus and so often called the ‘seat of life’. In Sanskrit it is often translated as ‘ones own abode’ It is here that the unity of the first chakra becomes duality, the place where we begin to experience pleasure vs pain, likes vs dislikes. The second chakra is yin , relates to the moon and so encompasses the feminine qualities of receptivity, creativity, emotion, movement, pleasure and nurturance. This centre, like water, has power when it is in flow and builds momentum
In this session will begin with an opening water meditation followed by breathwork to calm and ground. Asana will focus primarily on the pelvis, hips and low abdomen for this session, the area of the body relating to swadisthana, and then we will move into reclined and supported restorative asana, with sound, essential oils and visualization all of which will support the balance of the 2nd chakra. A yoga nidra will complete this beautifully fluid practice designed to release blocked memories and past experiences that lie in our unconscious.
