During this 2-hour guided workshop with Puck we practice how to channel and harness our yin energy. We use the chakras and work our way through the 7 main energy centers. We access our yoga poses in a holistic and mindful way, with the approach of surrendering.
For those who have been practicing Yin yoga for a while, this is a beautiful opportunity to go a bit further. We bring in the more subtle layer of Chakra work to experience more fully what the poses do for us.
If you are new to Yin yoga this is your chance to really find out what it is about.
You will learn about the chakra system and how it provides a theoretical base for fine-tuning our yoga practice, this to suit our unique personality and circumstances. Traditionally, Indians saw the body as containing seven main chakras, arranged vertically from the base of the spine to the top of the head. Chakra is the Sanskrit word for wheel, and these “wheels” were thought of as spinning vortexes of energy.
Each chakra is associated with particular functions within the body and with specific life issues and the way we handle them, both inside ourselves and in our interactions with the world. As centers of force, chakras can be thought of as sites where we receive, absorb, and distribute life energies. Through external situations and internal habits, such as long-held physical tension and limiting self-concepts, a chakra can become either deficient or excessive—and therefore imbalanced.
As with all Yoga practises, during this 2-hour workshop we focus our attention to learn about ourselves and how to deal with any imbalances we might encounter. Hari Om!
