Aroma Yoga Workshop: Balancing Your Chakras - 20th Oct 19
Yoga Creation E14 8AS on Sunday, 20th October, 3.00-5.30pm
Our health, moods and general wellbeing depends on how smoothly the energy circulates through the body energy centres – chakras. They are located where the nadis (energy channels) cross and have some relation to the nerve plexuses. Stress, tiredness and other factors can cause blockages of the energy flow. Yoga practise is one of the best ways to remove these blocks by breathing, holding the poses or moving through them.
During this workshop we will focus on Root chakra (stability, security), Solar Plexus (self-confidence, willpower) and Throat chakra (communication, expression).
We will practise Yang - dynamic, active and Yin - passive, still yoga for balance and harmony. Breathing techniques towards the end of the workshop will lead you into the long guided final relaxation with Yoga Nidra elements.
Healing powers of carefully selected blends of essential oils will help you to soften your body and mind, to ground and centre during your practice.
Paying more attention to chakras may help to free your energy, to move through asanas more naturally, recognizing your comfort zones and challenges. So we move through the yoga asanas with more awareness and energy and so through the day to day life.
The workshop is open for everyone: from beginners to experienced practitioners looking for a slower practice. There will be a choice of restorative modification in Yin poses.
Important: those who are on medication please consult with your GP or a Pharmacist if any essential oils or remedies can not be used together.
P.S. Aroma Yoga workshop has proved very popular. Here are some comments: “I had a great healing time this afternoon at your workshop. I felt very light after the session, very different from my regular dynamic practice, enjoyed aroma so much too…”
“I left really relaxed and recharged… The ambience of the room was so magical! I also loved an intention of the session and finalising with Pranayama.”
The cost is £30, a sample of an essential oil is included. To book click this link and scroll down for Aroma Yoga Workshop

Description of the Classes
Hatha Flow. The classes are based on the classical Hatha Yoga postures being linked together by the breath. You will get the benefits of strength, stamina, flexibility and relaxation and have an opportunity to learn breathing, meditation and relaxation techniques. All ages and experience welcome.
Vinyasa Flow. Similar to Hatha Flow but more dynamic. Starts with a standing sequence, moving in and out of the posture with the breath, following by some mat work and finishes up with the guided relaxation. The same benefits as Hatha Flow but feels more like workout. All ages and experience welcome.
Yin Yoga. Mostly seated and lying poses are being held for 3-10 minutes allowing to open your body through passive stretching. This slow meditative healing practise gently stretches the connective tissues while also toning, lengthening the muscles and quieting the mind. At the deeper level Yin Yoga nourishes and gently stimulates meridians - energy channels in the body ( nadis in Indian system). They are related to particular organs and emotional states. This style is especially suitable for people who want a relaxing, healing class and who want to work more on flexibility.
Restorative Yoga. It is total relaxation in lying poses using lots of props: blankets, cushions, bolsters, blocks.
