INNER SENSING MEDITATIONS
INTRODUCTION TO THE CHAKRA SYSTEM
HATHA YOGA + YIN YOGA
Within our physical and emotional being lies hidden energy, wisdom, love, power and other gifts waiting to be discovered. Our mysterious physical and emotional symptoms such as constriction, tightness, tension, anxiety, discomfort, feelings of mild depression or fear may be trying to communicate something important about the state of our wholeness and wellness. Through Yoga postures, Alchemical meditation practices, and free writing time, we will move through the Chakra system and explore the central questions, emotional resonances and physical holding patterns of each one such as identity, stability, will, sensuality, creativity, power, motivation, love, connection vulnerability, expression, communication, vision and intuition.
These practices are designed to uncover the hidden information contained within our fascia, muscles and cells and in our energetic centres (chakras). This practice of transformation and integration is an expression of the Alchemical practice of transforming Lead into Gold.
As a culture we have spent a lot of time developing our mental faculties, and we tend to spend the majority of our lives living in our heads, trying to figure things out logically. As a result we often miss the important messages our body’s are trying to communicate. This disconnect can be the root of feelings of anxiety, unease and mild depression. Alchemical Yoga helps us to to reveal more information about our body's holding patterns and to begin a new process of relating and communication between the conscious and subconscious aspects of our being.This workshop provides an opportunity to foster deeper relationship between the rational and the intuitive aspects of our being and to foster a way of being that is more compassionate, accepting, energetic and grounded.
