Compact Preamble & Practice –

5 Upayas

The Union of practice; asana, pranayama and meditation should be grounded in mindful reflection called Vichara. This is how you, as the Adhikara (competent student), to take responsibility and accountability of what comes up in practice and skilfully use the Yoga tools to best move forward in your practice and your life.

The Adhikara is made up of 5 essential ingredients or skilful means called Upayas. These Upayas are 1. Shraddha: Faith, Trust, Serenity. 2. Virya: Strength, Courage, Determination. 3. Smirti: Memory of vital information, what matters most, higher purpose. 4. Samadhi: Absorption, Wholeness, Oneness. 5. Prajna: Illumination, Light of Awareness, Rootless Intuitive Wisdom. We will be exploring these attributes within you through Pranayama (breath work) and Asana (physical practice) moving into strong, strengthening backbends and a lateral practice, mixed with twists and nurturing forward bends.

Compact Preamble & Practice –

Bija Mantras & Chakras

There is much mis-conception about the Chakras. At the most basic level, they are wheels or vortexes within the body that both receive and radiate energy. There are seven of them and they start at the crown of the head and then are strategically found down through the body to the base of the spine. The Bija Mantras are known as the “seed sounds”, or the one-syllable sounds that activate the Chakras. Mantra is said to protect the mind and the use of these mantras is to spark a positive neurological effect within the body, energy and mind. We use the the Bija sounds to open us to the meaning of what these Chakras hold, empowering, motivating and potentially healing us through practice. I am not a singer so pardon the pitch and tone of my Bija Mantras, but I will try to express the sound and vibration of these teachings for you to explore your unique resonance and to harmonise the systems and to leave you with radiance from your practice.
