Think of all the things that give you pleasure and nurture you and this is related to the care and feeding of your honey pot. FREE your pelvis and you’ll free up your life, all the rest will follow. If we ignore our hips they begin acting as the junk drawer of the body. In doing so, we lose our self-confidence, our emotional connection to each other, and our power to make change.
This workshop is a feeling journey into empowerment that reclaims our essential foundation for happiness by focusing on the elements of earth and water. Through chakra one, we will learn skills for grounding and rooting ourselves in the Earth. In chakra two, we will reclaim the mysteries of creativity, relationship to emotion, and devotion, as powerful agents of connection with ourselves and others.
Expect inspirational music, the perfect soundscape by International Musician Haji Basim and a juicy creative hip opening vinyasa flow practice, great for detoxifying and grounding. Practice starts with a heat building, hip & thigh opening sun salutation sequence, then moves into a series of hip openers where you will spend time breaking down and exploring the postures more deeply. The main poses we will work towards will be full bakasana, krounchasana and yogadandasana. A deep savasana and breath work to end the workshop will help us truly move smoothly with our honey pots restored! All levels welcome except absolute beginners, regular practice is recommended.
In the meantime, play with these mantras: I am a glorious, creative being. Pleasure is my birthright. I am at home and at ease in my body.
