‘Ok Monday …Let’s do this !’….
Today sees the start of the new yoga courses and class blocks with a focus on the Chakras 🙏
Over half term it may be that you’ve had the opportunity to connect with nature, family and friends. Maybe even to ‘find your roots’. In classes this week we’ll be drawing our awareness to Muladhara, the Root Chakra’. Vrikshasana (tree pose) embodies this chakra. As we root/ground through the heals, we make a firm connection with the earth, giving us the dual action of ‘rising’ through the crown of the head, finding lightness, balance, energy and stability in our posture.

‘The Muladhara governs your family ties and feelings of survival, belonging, and guardedness. Your earliest memories are stored here, including whether or not your basic needs were met. When it is blocked or out of balance, you can become needy, have low self-esteem, or have self-destructive behaviors. When Muladhara is in balance, you feel strong and confident; you can stand up on your own two feet and take care of yourself.’
