Rachel de Boer: Chakra Hatha Yoga – all levels
Wednesday 18:00 – 19:30 Studio Wittenstraat
In this Chakra Hatha Yoga class we work with a the different energy centers in the body (the chakras). We do the asanas (yoga postures) associated with this particular chakra and part of the body. We also use pranayama (breathing exercises), affirmations, visualizations and meditations associated with this chakra centre.
Every lesson, we dive deeper into each chakra. There will thus be cycles of seven classes. Between them a lesson where all the chakras are involved.
You can drop in in every lesson!
The asanas are mainly classical Hatha Yoga postures, focusing on healthy and stable alignment of the body with the focus is on a straight back. We remain longer in one position than normally. We consciously use our breath to soften. My key words are body awareness, relaxation, strength, flexibility, attention (mindfulness), breathing and meditation.
Chakra Hatha Yoga can help us better understand your own physical and mental wellbeing. It can make you be aware of the different stages of your inner process and your personal growth.
We put a structure in the yoga class, because we follow the natural body. From the feet to the crown of the head to the feet. This can create more attention and concentration to a specific area of the body.
