Yoga and Meditation Workshop

Saturday 12th of January, 3pm - 6:00pm / Evolve in South Kensington

The New Year is a poignant time to turn the gaze inwards, for reflection of how and where we currently are in our lives. Do you sometimes feel stuck? Like you want to move forwards but you’re not sure how, or what is holding you back? Do you feel like you need more energy or will power?

In this powerful workshop Jess will guide you through an exploration into the 7 energy centres, the chakras. Making what sometimes seems esoteric into a practical framework for understanding the Chakras and providing tools and methods to help balance these energy centres and develop a deeper understanding of how they govern us. When we understand these subtle energy centres better it is easy for us to understand where we might be blocked, what might be holding us back and how we can go about using our yoga practices to help bring us into balance.

There are seven key points in the subtle body that are thought to be vortexes of energy, known as chakras. When energy becomes blocked in a chakra, it can trigger physical, mental, or emotional imbalances that can manifest in symptoms such as anxiety, insomnia, lethargy, poor digestion, general dis’ease’ in the body to name a few.

In this workshop we will use Asana, Mantra (sound), Yantra (images/shapes), and Pranayama to explore how we can use yoga to balance the energetic and subtle body. The workshop will end with a guided Meditation.

All attendees will receive a recording of the meditation to practice at home and a post workshop follow up sheet.

This workshop will be suitable for all levels, but some basic experience of yoga would be helpful.
