With my weekly students, I have been reviewing the Chakras. This week, we will look at the Aura, which is sometimes described as the Eighth Chakra.
Beginning with the Complete Yoga Breath, Mahat Pranayama, we will move into lying postures. We’ll work with ‘nose to knee pose’ (all forms), Apanasana. Then we’ll work with the ‘bridge’ (all forms) Sethu Bandhasana. On to lying twists (all forms).
We’ll use the ‘boat pose’ as a transition to seated, Navasana. Then continue our work with the ‘downward facing dog’, Svenasana. We’ll use the ‘dog’ as a transition to standing.
Working with a partner, we’ll learn how to ‘brush the aura’.
Cool-downs and meditation will be followed with a long relaxation where we breathe in and fill the energy centres, breathe out and fill the aura.
OM Shanti Shanti Shanti .
