We’ve got a very special yin yoga class today yogis! This 75 minute yin yoga class focuses on the 7 chakras. Whether you believe in chakras or not, I encourage you to try this class with an open mind.

For a long time I shied away from chakras because I had a hard time believing them to be literal energy centers in the body but the truth is that the power of imagination and visualization is strong and really can help you break through emotional and mental blocks. So, if chakras aren’t really your thing, use the power of visualization! Think of this as a way to transform your yoga practice into a personal growth tool.

This is more than just a yoga class where we stretch and strengthen. Instead, this class calls on us to dive a little bit deeper and use our yoga practice to make meaningful changes in our daily lives.

The Seven Chakras:

– Root Chakra/Muladhara: safety, survival, community & family
– Sacral Chakra/Svadhisthana: creativity, sexuality, relationships
– Naval Chakra/Manipura: self-esteem, confidence, individuality
– Heart Chakra/Anahata: love, caring, oneness, acceptance
– Throat Chakra/Visuddha: truth, clear communication, integrity
– Third Eye Chakra/Ajna: wisdom, intuition, guidance
– Crown Chakra/Sahasrara: divine connection, spirituality, oneness with all

I hope you find this class beneficial in some way.

What is Yin Yoga? Yin yoga is often called the Yoga of the joints because unlike other styles of yoga, the emphasis is not on the muscles but on the deep connective tissue. Connective tissue is made up of fascia, ligaments and tendons which surround and form your joints. Yin yoga improves the range of motion in your joints and also strengthens them. The results and benefits are more flexibility and greater range of motion and also more stability within your joints. Although your muscles will also be stretched, that is not the focus of the practice. It is best to practice yin yoga while your muscles are cold and NOT warmed up, even if that sounds counter intuitive. The reason we do this is so that we can send the “stress” and the “Stretch” to the connective tissues. If the muscles are warm they will steal the focus away from the joints.

There are 3 principles of Yin Yoga.
1. Find your edge
2. Be still
3. Hold the pose

Find your edge means respecting your body’s limits and not pushing too far and risking injury. Pull back a little bit and as you hold the pose you will be able to go deeper into it without pushing too far or hurting yourself.

Being still means that once you are in the pose it is important to completely relax your muscles so the benefits can get into the connective tissues and joints. Try not to fidget or move or distract yourself, this is a meditative practice. Breathe deeply in and out through the nose.

Holding the pose means that in Yin Yoga a pose can be held for 1-10 minutes depending on the pose performed and on the comfort level of the student. I usually teach poses held for around 4-5 minutes. Learn to surrender and keep a timer close by if needed.

Use as many props as needed in Yin Yoga! Blocks, bolsters and straps are all great ways to support your body to make sure you are respecting your edge and not going too far.

  22. Thank you for that amazing experience, recently I have started to learning more about chakras and here you go -"randomly/coincidentaly" found this beutiful video ๐Ÿ’š loved it!

  23. Yoga was NEVER designed to get a person physically stronger or more flexible. Yoga means "union". Union with the Divine. It's sole purpose is to calm the mind in preparation for deep meditation.

  24. No, one should know chakras are very literal energy centers. the problem isn't with the Chakra system itself, but the way it is conveyed in the West. Anyway, thank you for the good class.
