Tuesdays (Penn): Continuation of Chakra Balancing Series

When: Tuesdays 7:30 - 8:45pm
Where: Tylers Green Village Hall (The Penn Room), Church Road, Penn, HP10 8LN.

Class description: In the lead up to our Christmas Charity Practice (12 December) we are continuing our themed practices to follow the Chakra path from the base of the spine to the crown of the head. The chakras are understood to be locations in the body of particular energetic significance and which, when working harmoniously, support the flow of energy and therefore the connection of body and mind. In November we explore Anahata (Heart Chakra - 7 Nov), Vissudhi (Throat Chakra - 14 Nov), Ajna (Third Eye Chakra - 21 Nov), Sahasrara (Crown Chakra - 28 Nov), working through  a range of asana (physical postures), flowing sequences and pranayama (breathing practices) to cultivate mindfulness, build strength and flexibility and refresh and enliven both body and mind. Modifications and variations are offered to allow beginners, and those with more experience, to take their practice as far as they wish.

Cost:   Single class: £9 / Block of 6 classes: £45. Concessions for OAPs | Full-time students | NHS | Emergency Services | Full-time teachers in mainstream education: Single class: £8 / Block of 6 classes: £40CARD PAYMENTS ACCEPTED
