• Learn to modify and adapt your practice to suit you while tuning into the energy and purpose of posture.
• Explore the use of props to feel your personal best in yoga postures regardless of flexibility level, limitations or injuries.
• Discover how to use and incorporate several types props into your practice: blankets, blocks, straps, bolsters, wedges, sandbags and wraps.
Props allow all practitioners access to the benefits of the postures regardless of physical condition, age, or length of study. The central purpose for using yoga props is to address a need for support. A “prop” is just that. It is supportive and helpful when facing obstacles on the mat because it helps to meet us where we are. Props help practitioners at all levels gain the sensitivity of a pose while receiving the benefits over time without overextending themselves. By using props, we teach ourselves to surrender to the support beneath us and let go of the need to control within. The mind becomes free of agitation and the student practices with greater effectiveness, ease, and stability.Recommended for all levels!
A chakra is a wheel-like spinning vortex that whirls in a circular motion forming a vacuum in the center that draws in anything it encounters on its particular vibratory level. Discover the elements of this system, recognize how chakras imbalances are manifesting, and understand how chakras govern different parts of your being. The seven main chakra centers are aligned along the spinal column. If there are disturbances on any level, this shows in the chakra’s vitality level. Also each of the seven main chakras is their own intelligence center. This means that each chakra is not only associated with our physical health but also controls aspects connected to our emotional, mental and belief system. When one part of a chakra center is out of sync it may eventually affect its other parts and possibly its neighboring chakra. When a chakra center is out of balance it generally means that it is over-active or under-active; if this happens it is usually felt on a mental, emotional or physical level. Learn practices that help bring each Chakra into a state of balance and how to recognize which energy centers to address.
