The Art of Cultivating a Self-Practice

Would you like to develop a yoga self-practice or a meditation self-practice that you can take anywhere in the world with you? Do you find that you get on your mat and are struggling at inspiration not quite knowing how to put a sequence together? Do you find that despite your best intentions to tackle stress and make time for yourself, you lack the time and discipline to get on your mat for your yoga or meditation practice? Do you find that your body gets tenser as the week goes by and you are not quite sure how to unravel it? Then our self-practice workshop series are for you. Join us for one or for all. We will be addressing different aspects of what yoga and meditation can offer and ways of integrating them into busy urban lives efficiently. A few minutes a day will go a long way.

**You can save by booking 3 or 5 workshops for 2017. A block of 3 workshops is just £65 or get 5 for just £100.**

This workshop is for anyone wanting to cultivate a meditation practice. Breathing techniques can be of great support to a meditation practice. You do not need to have a yoga practice to attend this workshop. Yoga practitioners are of course very welcome, as this workshop will help you deepen your practice on the mat. We will be exploring different meditation and breathing techniques, giving you material to explore at home and offering you a kick-start to a meditation self-practice.

A workshop on the Chakras with Youla Faita (Part 1 of 2)
Oct 29 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm
A workshop on the Chakras with Youla Faita (Part 1 of 2) @ Yogiyoga | England | United Kingdom

Part 1: Stability – Creativity – Power

This session will focus on the lower three Chakras: Muladhara, Svadisthana and Manipura.
The root Chakra, Muladhara forms our foundation, creating a strong structure in our practice.
The second Chakra, Svadisthana, represents the qualities of fluidity, adaptabily and creativity.
The Solar Plexus centre (Manipura) represents our power centre, ruling our personal strength and will.
You will be guided through a creative and strong flow, moving with precision through standing poses, hip openers and twists, interweaving playful arm balances. The practice will close with a meditation session.

Chakras are energy centres in the body that form junctions where different aspects of our physical, emotional and energetic selves meet. When practicing specific poses and moving with intention, we can help balance those centres.

Open to all levels except complete beginners. £45 for both workshops (part 1 and 2) or £30 individually.

Part 2: Connection – Willpower – Vision

This session focuses on the central and upper Chakras: Anahata, Visuddha, Ajna, Sahasrara.

We will start at the heart Chakra, the energy centre that unifies the spiritual and physical energies and resonates with our emotional perceptions.
The fifth Chakra, Visuddha, resides at the throat and is associated with our ability of expression and will-power.
Ajna, the sixth Chakra, is located at the centre of the forehead and is associated with the energies of our conscious and unconscious mind forces.
The seventh Chakra, Sahasrara, resides at the crown of the head and relates to our spiritual connection.

We will start with a dynamic sequence designed to create space in the upper back and lungs and release tension in the neck, shoulders and torso. We will then move safely into a slower and precise sequence of postures that will include backbends, detoxifying rotations of the spine and modified inversions. The practice will close with a meditation session which will help us connect to the subtle layers of the upper two Chakras.
