Chakra immersion course with Shakti Yoga therapy centre
Be sure to keep an eye out on my events page and Instagram feed to find out more about our regular 50hr Chakra Immersion course, co-hosted with Ma Akash of Shakti Yoga.
Myself and Ma Akash of Shakti Yoga present this 8 week course on the Chakra system. The Chakras are the subtle psychic energy centres that lie in the central nervous system in the spine and brain.
They control the functions of the body and mind, and influence our behaviour and decisions on a daily basis. They define our physical and psychological disposition and are the doors to the spiritual dimension of our being. It is useful to learn more about these powerful energy centers and how they operate.
By working with them consciously we are able to gain so much more insight about ourselves.
In joining the 50 hour Chakra Immersion Course you will learn in depth different practices that will stimulate and purify the chakras. As well as how to apply that knowledge in everyday life.

In this Hatha-based training we will work with a holistic approach to understanding how the chakras develop our mind, body and spirit. The Sanskrit word Chakra literally translates to wheel or disk. In yoga, meditation, and Ayurveda, this term refers to wheels of energy throughout the body. Starting at the base of the spine and moving upwards towards the crown of the head.
Our 50 hour Chakra immersion course will focus on the deeper, more subtle aspects of Yoga. Each week you will explore the powerful physical, energetic and mental shifts that can be facilitated when working with the relevant Chakras.
This course is ideal for Yoga teachers, Therapists, dedicated yoga practitioners or anyone looking to deepen their understanding of the Chakra system. The course is open to all levels of experience in the field of yoga.
