Revitalize Yourself through Chakra-Balancing
Chakras are the Energy Centers in the subtle body that influence all aspects of our lives, health and well-being- physical, mental and spiritual. These storehouses of power also hold the key to unleashing the best and the highest potential in us. Understanding the Chakras and their influence over us; how to cleanse and balance them as well as unleash the energy locked up inside them can have incredibly transformational impact on us.
In this series of workshops, we will explore a few energetic aspects of our selves leading up to the seven principal Chakras in the body, their areas of influence, their imbalance and balance and some techniques to balance the Chakras. While attending selective workshops in this series has its own benefits, we highly recommend taking the entire series for optimum benefit.
These workshops involve meditating intermittently. Come prepared by wearing loose and comfortable clothing and bring your favourite cushion(s), yoga mat or blanket.

Sealing in the Energy through Mudras 39 GBP
Mudra means “sealing or locking in” in Sanskrit. Mudras involve specific ways of intertwining the fingers to ignite and seal in subtle Energy. Energy, when sealed, is focused and unlimited in power. Accessing our unlimited inner power through the right application of Mudra can be learned.
Mudras – simple to complex – facilitate healing and meditation. Mudra, given its effect on the body, mind and consciousness, is transformative. Mudras can flow into one another or be sustained to direct the flow of Prana for health, concentration and deeper spiritual awareness. Mudras are used by practitioners of Tantra, Bhakti Yoga and Buddhism.
Join us to explore different Mudras and learn to chant the various Bijasksharas (powerful ‘seed mantras’) associated with those Mudras.
