Journey Through the Chakras 2021
Journey through the Chakras and discover how the chakras are affecting which areas of your life. This is going to be an insightful course that will introduce you to each of the seven chakras and the development of them in different stages of your life. You'll learn specific pranayama, mudras, seed madras and yoga asana to assist in balancing each of them.
We will begin with the root chakra, Muladhara, connecting to the earth. This chakra is the seat of your instincts.
The Muladhara chakra governs your auto-immune and skeletal systems. As well as your bowels and teeth.
When are basic needs are met, when we feel supported and safe. We are able to endure the trials of life. But without stability, we operate from fear, which can express itself in hoarding, irrational response, impulsiveness, desperation and aggression.
When balanced we trust our needs will be met, which opens us up to the higher expressions. We feel secure in life. We value life. We are able to be present in the moment.
Working with your chakras facilitates awareness into areas of your life you may be stuck or unbalanced.
The specific asana, pranayama, mudras and seed mantras will allow you to create healthier patterns, bringing more ease and joy into your life. The material will be presented with an introduction to the chakra, the yantra associated with the chakra and the seed mantra. The pranayama and mudras will assist in balancing the chakra. You'll also receive a guided meditation, as well as a yoga sequence of specific asana for bringing into the chakra into balance.

Foundations of Yoga Workshop
Knowing the correct alignment of an asana is important for safely placing the body in a way that protects the joints, provides a solid foundation for asana variations and allows a natural progression that supports and nourishes the body and mind, rather than fatiguing it. Why does an asana feel awkward or uncomfortable? Why does a particular pose seem so inaccessible? I created the Foundational Yoga Workshop to answer these questions.
Asana translates in Sanskrit as a comfortable, easy position. When the body is aligned one's physiology is more efficient and performs more effectively. It requires more energy to hold one's body out of alignment. Issues resulting from the compensation of different muscle groups to maintain a particular position. This workshop will provide you with a solid foundation and an understanding of proper alignment, to gain greater strength and flexibility while maintaining the necessary balance in each asana, to progress in your yoga practice.
"I attended Meighlin's Foundational Skills Course last year to enhance my practice. Meighlin provided a safe space and a wealth of knowledge in which to go deeper into each of the various poses teaching the origins, and also how to hold and be aware during the poses. I remember after feeling uplifted and stronger. During one of her next Hatha yoga sessions, I effortlessly did a lot of the more challenging balancing poses with ease and full awareness - and a huge smile on my face. I highly recommend any of her teachings, as she truly comes from a place of love and acceptance."
"Meighlin's Foundational Workshop was awesome! As a frequent student of Meighlin's Hatha classes, I found I learnt a ton from her during this workshop. Meighlin is a wonderful yoga teacher and to be able to ask her questions during class and to receive personal suggestions and corrections were priceless for someone who is looking to deepen their yoga practice."
"Thank you so much for your guidance and wisdom through these weeks. For me it was a journey with lots of learning along the way. It gave me a different view of how I see my yoga practice now. I just assumed I could only go so far, but when you mentioned trying this or that I was surprised I could actually do it. Thanks again for your light and teachings."
"Thank-you for your workshop. It was the most interesting! I learned a lot and enjoyed it. You are an amazing yoga teacher, so kind and understanding."
This workshop covers the alignment principles of specific asana so that you can develop a solid and sustainable yoga practice. The principles of alignment provide you with the stability essential for various intermediate variations of asana.
