Vinyasa yoga (advanced Yang poses) & the Chakras with Moena
How Vinyasa yoga relates with the Chakras: our body counts hundreds of energy meeting points. When we talk about the Chakras, we mention the 7 main energy wheels where we develop our personality and spiritual growth. The order in a Yang (Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Hatha) sequence is based on the Chakra system
In this 7- folded workshop you will discover how each Asana group (e.g. forward bendings, twists, inversions, backbends) relates with a Chakra and which relationships in our lives combines with a specific Chakra. You will experience how yoga truly is a practice of purification. As our lives are based on different relationships (e.g: parents / friends / lovers / teachers etc.) We find out the importance, joy and challenges in all relationships. Just like our yoga practice can be challenging, both as supporting and healing.
To understand an Asana, we build up in all workshops in a progressive manner towards a peak pose with modifications so you can experience harmony and stabilization. Pranayama will be part of this 7- monthly workshop to stimulate the energy body as like Mantras to illuminate all Chakras.
As each Chakra relates with an Asana group we'll relate every workshop with a different focus. This workshop is part of a set of seven which you can also follow seperately:
