I have just completed a 5 day intensive course on the Anatomy of the Chakras with Tias Little (http://www.prajnayoga.net/tias-little/).
WOW! What a great course! Tias is a mindful and thoughtful teacher who brings about an awareness of how yoga can maintain a balance of the emotional, subtle and physical bodies.
It really helped me to tie together my love of practicing yoga with the physical benefits of movement and stretching. Not only has this course deepened my own yoga practice but it has also offered me relief from my ongoing and nagging back complaint. Thank you!
Movement and yoga is an important part of healing our energy systems, and during the course we were given an array of tools to ensure that yoga remains a mindful practice that enhances our wellbeing for the good of all things. Tias also emphasisis the importance of meditation, breathing and something that is a challenge to me – chanting!
I will be writing a series of posts on each of the chakras. I will explain them in turn, highlighting common physical and emotional issues associated with each and the yoga poses that can help to breathe the energy back into those areas.
