Stimulating Chi flow in the joints

In this short session you will do specific movements for all the joints of your body to enhance the chi flow, which get stagnated easily during the day. It is based on a sequence offered by Dr. Motoyama, a Shinto priest, who has done scientific research on chi, chakras and meridian pathways. This sequence is great if you sit in a chair all day or when you want to enhance the chi flow before doing either a Yin or Yang yoga practice. Props you might need are: a pillow and a blanket.

Feel and enhance the chi in and around your body while you do specific movements with your fingers, arms, shoulders, back, ankles and toes. Opening up to the chi flow makes you aware of how everything is connected. After having moved the chi you continue with Yin poses to release tension in the back, legs, ankles and toes. This 30-minute sequence is great to give your whole body a chi boost in a short period of time. Everybody can benefit from this sequence - including postnatal women. Props: blanket, blocks, bolster and a pillow.

Yin yoga for the chakras

Yin yoga for the chakras

Yin yoga for the chakras

Chakras are important energy centres in the body situated along the spine. We have 7 main chakras and they are connected to our whole system, our physical, mental and emotional body. This class uses Yin yoga poses to gently stimulate the 7 centres, so the energy starts to flow and the chakra can balance itself if needed. An option while practising is to play the music of Ashana: Jewels of Silence meditation on the chakras. You can find this album on Spotify. At the end we will chant the Bija mantras. For your reference they are Ram, Lam, Vam, Yam, Ham, Om, Om. Recommended props are blocks, a bolster, something to sit on. Enjoy, it's a variation of a practice I personally practice regularly.
