¬† The Chakra system provides us the means to explore the different levels of our own consciousness and to maintain optimal health, higher awareness and perfect dynamic balance with the forces of both external and internal nature. In these subtle structures lies the power to transform our ordinary consciousness into a higher consciousness where everything is experienced as an expression of the divine consciousness and the world becomes a field of blissful creative expression. This workshop aims to balance the energy in the Chakras and to heal the psychological and psychic dimensions of our being. Chakra meditation deepens the level of self-awareness and helps explore one’s own creative potentials and to express it freely.
The workshop is designed for all those who would like to get introduced for the first time to the world of yoga, as well as for those who are already practicing but would like to get clear about the foundations of the body & mind work in yoga. After a brief introduction into the origins and development of the modern yoga practice, you will have an opportunity to look into and explore your habitual breath patterns and to introduce some more beneficial ones if needed. You will experience the principles of postural alignment in the practice of Sun Salutation, a flowing sequence that provides a safe and steady environment for building more strength and flexibility. A pranayama session with simple yet very effective practices will give you an insight into the connection of the mind and breath, where the breath serves as a bridge between the body and the mind. The workshop will end with a short guided meditation, leaving you physically and mentally recharged with a clear mind and awakened body.
