Urban Yoga Weekend with Andrew
EMPOWERING OUR LIVES THROUGH THE CHAKRAS
This 2 day Chakra Workshop is designed to bring greater awareness to the energy centers (Chakras) of the body using Yogic Practice as a vehicle for Self Exploration. Yoga is an incredible modality and vehicle for bringing about greater Self awareness on all levels: Physical, Emotional, Mental & Spiritual.
Each session will open up with theory and philosophy on the Chakra system, which will then follow into specific Yoga postures (asana), breathing techniques (pranayama), meditations, creative visualizations, and healing sounds/mantras designed to stimulate, energize and bring overall greater awareness to each individual’s Chakra system.
The workshops are a combination of:
- Yoga Theory and Philosophy
- Yoga Asana and Movement
- Interactive Healing Transpersonal modalities
Every aspect of our lives will be covered over the two days from our will to live, our security, families, to our sexuality, emotions, health and Healing, right through to our intellect, intuition and spiritual gifts and aspirations. We will learn how to utilize this powerful internal map to navigate our way towards GREATER PERSONAL EMPOWERMENT. During the second day we dive deeper into the chakra system through “Dance of the Deities” exploring the Divine Deitiy “Kundalini Shakti”.

Awakening this Kundalini energy can bring greater power, potency, clarity, connection, purpose and direction towards our Divine Dhrama (Purpose).
