The Chakra System

This comprehensive guide offers a unique blend of ancient wisdom and modern insights, providing a practical roadmap for individuals looking to enhance their yoga practice and deepen their understanding of the Chakra System. Through an exploration of techniques, readers will learn how to align their chakras, cultivate greater self-awareness and intuition, and discover inner balance with a more harmonious mind-body connection.

At the heart of the ancient Indian healing system known as Ayurveda lies the concept of chakras, which are believed to be the centers of energy in the human body. These energy centers are located along the spine, each corresponding to various physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of being. Yoga Insights provides valuable knowledge and techniques, helping you uncover the profound connections between your chakras and overall well-being, guided by rich traditions and modern approaches that make this practice so transformative.


Yoga Teacher Self-Inquiry

The inappropriate physical contact between yoga teachers and students has received significant media attention. However, this doesn’t imply that we should completely refrain from adjustments. Touch is an essential aspect of the human experience, albeit one that can also have negative consequences. To protect both our students and ourselves, it is crucial to prioritize consent and establish strong boundaries.

Creating a safe environment is paramount, and ‘safe touch’ doesn’t necessarily imply a complete absence of touch. Yoga Insights offers valuable guidance on navigating these complexities, helping teachers foster a safe and respectful atmosphere in their practice.

Anxiety and Acceptance

‘When people start to meditate or work with any sort of spiritual discipline, they often think that somehow they’re going to improve, which is a sort of subtle aggression against who they really are. It’s a bit like saying, “If I jog, I’ll be a much better person.” If I only could get a nicer house, I’d be a better person.”

But loving kindness toward ourselves doesn’t mean getting rid of anything. It means that we can still be crazy after all these years. We can still be angry after all these years. We can still be timid or jealous or full of feelings of unworthiness. The point is not to try to throw ourselves away & become something better. It’s about befriending who we are already.

Small Group Benefits

In the intimate setting of small group yoga training, as Yoga trainers, we have a unique opportunity to observe & connect with each individual student on a deeper level. This enables us to understand your specific needs better & tailor the training accordingly, ensuring maximum benefit for each participant. Small group settings allow for flexibility & customization, unlike larger groups, where a more rigid schedule may be necessary to manage the higher numbers.

Many of us have experienced yoga classes in large groups, where we can feel unseen & disconnected from the teacher. Limited personal assistance may be available, & it can be challenging for your individual needs to be met in such settings.
