Full Description

Purpose of this workshop?

All of us go through emotional upheavals in life - hurt, disappointment, grief, sorrow and pain are inevitable on our personal journeys.

Some of these wounds heal while some stay with us affecting the quality of life adversely. The good news is that we can start clearing up this emotional baggage through Yoga. Yoga heals - each posture work at a deep level, on all the subtle layers of human consciousness - especially if performed mindfully and correctly.

The purpose of this workshop is :

- To provide a safe, intimate, nurturing space to go within ourselves and allow Yoga to facilitate a release from our Heart centre or chakra - a chakra very essential for our emotional well-being.

- We will work on the mind, body and emotions through the yoga postures with the intention of releasing emotions that are weighing us down and clearing up space for renewal.

- Post the workshop, you will be empowered to integrate the postures and other tools into your personal home practice.

More about the Heart chakra and it's implications ...

- The heart chakra, is the fourth of the 7 major chakras in Yogic anatomy and rests in the center of the chakra system, at the core of our spirit

- Its physical location is the heart, upper chest, and upper back

- In Sanskrit, the heart chakra is called Anahata. Its name implies that deep beneath our personal stories of brokenness and the pain in our heart, wholeness, boundless love, and a wellspring of compassion reside

- If you notice that you are sitting with your head forward, shoulders rounded and your chest collapsed, it's a good time to start practicing Heart chakra related poses to give your heart some breathing space

- When we lead with our head and not with the heart, we may be overly focused on thought and tend to cut ourselves off from the emotions and the body

- When the heart chakra is deficient, you may experience feelings of shyness and loneliness, an inability to forgive, or a lack of empathy

- Physically stretching the muscles in your chest, shoulders and thoracic spine can enable create space in the Heart chakra
