Happy 2020 to everyone!

Classes all back to normal this week. Come along and stretch, unwind and let go of the daily grind.

New year kicked off in style with a suitably bonkers session. A laughter look at New Year’s Eve celebrations and New Year resolutions. We put our appreciation goggles on, determined to give ourselves some well deserved pats on the back and shot some loving kindness arrows around the world.

Yoga

Final week of chakras. This week how to recognise when a chakra is overactive, and how to use yoga practices to pacify the energy. The Dru yoga heart exercise was a lovely way to remind ourselves to receive a bit of self-love if we tend to always be doing things for others. And we combined the chin lock of downward dog with the simple fascia sequence to encourage inward communication – rather than non-stop talking!!

Yoga

Another week learning about chakras. So far we have covered their location, colour and quality. But you might be thinking what’s the point?

So this week we’ve been thinking about using postures to activate chakras if you feel you are spaced out/insecure, stuck in a rut/got writer’s block, lacking motivation, feeling emotionally blocked/lonely, feeling verbally repressed, lacking insight or losing sight of the big picture.

Feedback on the session has been very positive. Homework (!)is to think about what happens when you maybe have excess energy in these areas…

Yoga

Still on the subject of chakras. I ended the classes this week chanting the sounds of the chakras for the relaxation. Several people commented on the end how effective it had been. It sent some drifting off and others experienced the sound resonating in their body.

‘Can you come round to my house and send me off to sleep?’ was one request!

Yoga

The chakra theme has been continuing over the last few weeks. This week we practised candle gazing for the eyebrow chakra and Prana Mudra for the crown chakra. I got Tuesday’s class all set up, hands up to the sky – ‘Connect to the Universe’ I instructed. Right on cue someone’s mobile went off – playing harp music!! Couldn’t have timed it better!

Lots of fun with balloons in Monday’s session! And a chance to try out the shaking feet and hands routine. So good I went on to use it for a little warm up in my yoga classes this week!
