'Standing in our strength: the power of the solar plexus'

Saturday 15 June 2013, 10.00-16.00

“You are never more powerful

than when you are being who you really are.”

The solar plexus, or manipura chakra, is associated with the qualities of personal integrity, self-esteem, and vitality. At times we might feel we have played small or compromised on our values. The power of this fire centre helps us be true to ourselves, and gives us the energy and determination to follow through.

When the solar plexus is out of balance it can feel like a raging fire or the opposite, a light that has gone out. Finding balance is the key - the strong flame that may flicker but is never dampened. This chakra is often associated with the emotion of anger - a crucial part of our emotional vocabulary that tells us when enough is enough, marks our boundaries and can be there to protect and defend. When we express our feelings in a free and helpful way they can be a great signpost to our values and basic needs, without taking over our lives or draining our power.

So through our practice we will connect with the fire inside us and our strength to stand up for what we believe in - with feet grounded and hearts open!

The workshop will include gentle warm-ups and nurturing relaxation as well as a more dynamic element to help build vitality and boost inner strength.

Above all, my aim is for this to be a deeply nurturing day retreat - time out to unwind and recharge! Everyone is welcome, from yoga teachers right through to total beginners - please feel free to invite your friends.
