Chakra Series: Muladhara (Root) Chakra
This is a 60 minute Hatha Yoga sequence all about grounding ourselves and exploring postures, including a Moon Salutation, to open and balance the Root Chakra. This Chakra represents both physical and emotional grounding and stability and the stronger and more stable our roots the better we are able to weather life’s storms. Suitable for all abilities, including beginners.
Chakra Series: Svadisthana (Sacral) Chakra
This is a 60 minute Hatha Yoga sequence which incorporates movements that stimulate the lower abdomen, hips and pelvic region all of which relate to the energy of the Sacral Chakra. This is the Chakra that governs relationships and how we relate to others and is also the centre of sexuality, emotions and creativity and can become easily blocked by repressed emotions. By stimulating this area of the body we create ease and space on a physical level that helps to open us up emotionally too. Suitable for all abilities, including beginners.
Sleepy Stretchy Hatha Yoga Sequence
This is a 35 minute Hatha Yoga sequence that is perfect for when you are feeling tired, lacking in energy or maybe you just want to do a gentle yoga practice that will really help to get you back into your body. This class focuses on seated, low and supine postures that will deeply stretch your muscles and create ease throughout. A wonderfully nourishing and relaxing sequence. Suitable for all abilities, including beginners.
Yoga Sequence for the Lower Back
This is a 50 minute Hatha Yoga class that I have sequenced to help release tension around the lower back. There are no standing postures in this class as we focus on deep release through stretching. All postures are therefore seated, kneeling or laying on your front and back. This practice is perfect for those times when your lower back is feeling a little tight or sore and you just know it needs easing out. It would also be suitable for when you might be experiencing general lower back pain. It can also be used as a sequence to simply keep your back healthy and to show your lower back some love! Suitable for all abilities, including beginners.
Chakra Series: Manipura (Solar Plexus)
This is a 50 minute sequence in which we are tapping into the energy of the Manipura chakra through a series of core activating postures. Opening with an energising breath, Kapalabhati, the sequence continues with an exploration of postures including Navasana and Surya Namaskar B to connect us to our core self, building to our peak Bakasana, or Crow pose. This chakra represents your fire centre, your seat of personal power and as such we will be creating strength and power through our practice. Suitable for all abilities, including beginners.
Energising Flowing Yoga Sequence
This 35 minute flowing yoga sequence will leave you feeling refreshed and energised. It will get your heart pumping, build heat throughout your body, take your joints through full range of motion and by moving a little more fluidly through the postures, you will connect with a little more flow in your practice. Ideal for when you want to get your energy levels up and feel energised. Suitable for all abilities, including beginners.
Chakra Series: Anahata (Heart) Chakra
In this 50 minute sequence we are exploring a series of heart-opening yoga postures to open and balance the Heart Chakra. By activating this chakra and creating space around the heart centre you open yourself up to compassion and love for yourself and others. As the centre point of the seven main chakras, this energy centre is said to be where the physical and spiritual meet and thus stands as a gateway between the lower physical chakras and the upper spiritual chakras and is where love and peace reside.
Chakra Series: Vishuddha (Throat) Chakra
In this 50 minute class we are exploring yoga poses to energise our fifth chakra. Our Vishuddha chakra is located in the area around the neck, throat, jaw and mouth and as such a practice to activate this energy centre incorporates poses, including Ujjayi breathing, Shoulder Stand (with alternatives offered) and Fish Pose which help to open and stimulate these areas. This is the first of the spiritual chakras and relates to your ability to express yourself, communicate with others and to speak your truth without fear. It resonates with your inner truth and helps you find a way to convey your voice to the outside world. Suitable for all abilities.
Chakra Series: Ajna (Third Eye) Chakra
In this 50 minute class we move up to our sixth chakra, the Ajna or Third Eye Chakra. Opening with a mudra that connects us to this chakra, we move through a series of postures and practices which help to energise and activate the area around the third eye. Represented by the colour Indigo, this chakra relates to the mind, brain, ears, eyes, nose, pituitary and pineal glands which control hormones, moods and sleep. Stimulating this chakra helps us to see beyond the physical and governs aspects such as dreaming, imagination, visualisation, concentration and focus. Postures include Dolphin Pose, Eagle Pose and Pyramid Pose amongst others and a guided visualisation at the end. Suitable for all abilities, including beginners.
Chakra Series: Sahasrara (Crown) Chakra
This 50 minute sequence brings us to the seventh and final chakra, the Sahasrara or Crown Chakra. This chakra is the gateway to all things spiritual and represents our highest level of consciousness and enlightenment. The class opens with a brief introduction to this energy centre, then we explore various practices to open and activate this chakra including: alternate nostril breathing, a flow to move energy around the body and then postures to prepare for headstand. Please note we will not be doing headstand itself for safety reasons, but we will look at postures to help prepare the body. The class closes with a Chakra Meditation.
