A JOURNEY THROUGH THE CHAKRA'S with Blaithin Sweeney
Wednesdays 7.30am and Saturdays 10am
There are many aspects of the physical Asana practice that can be analogised with the energy forces that support life itself. We take a look at our practice on the mat through the lens of each chakra as a means of exploring the physical self.
Week 1: Muladhara – Root Chakra
Connected with the colur red and the element of Earth. During this class we focus on drawing energy up through the roots of our foundations creating stability and correcting alignment so that we may develop ourselves further on and off the mat.
Week 2: Svadisthana – Sacral Chakra
Connected with the colour orange and the element of Water. During this class we focus on hip-openers and creating fluidity. Searching for sensation in the body, once we can feel it we can heal it.
Week 3: Manipura – Solar Plexus Chakra
Connected witht he colour yellow and the element of Fire. This is the mischief and motivation centre. We focus on twisting and lighting a fire in the belly.
Week 4: Anahata – Heart Chakra
Connected with the colour green and the element of Air. During this class we focus on back bends and happy heart openers, engaging with the practice of creating space.
Week 5: Vishuddha – Throat Chakra
Connected with the colour blue and the element of Space. During this class we focus on the Ujai Breath and have a play with inversions. Bringing heat and light to the throat we set an intention to find and speak our truth.
Week 6: Ajna & Sahaswara – Third Eye and Crown Chakras
Connected with the colours indigo and violet and the elements of Consciousness and Mind. During this class we bring attention to 'Dristi', our focul point and bring together the teaching of all chakras in a dynamic vinyasa flow focusing on connection with self, others and all that is.
This class is suitable for beginners and advanced yogi's. Please see out timetable for booking. You can drop-in to this class at any stage throughout the course - Please remember to book your place to secure your mat.
