A heart chakra practice focused on compassion, empathy, and love + acceptance of ourselves, others, and the world around us. Accompanied by live sound healing w/ Elena Skovorodko on rain sticks. Mona will be playing Aya + Tyler’s sound bath throughout the evening.
Anahata (heart) chakra is the energy center that governs relationships in our lives; our relationship with ourselves and others. When this energy center is tamasic or underactive we can be judgmental, intolerant, struggle with forgiveness and suffer from feeling down. When this energy center is rajasic or overactive we can be clingy, jealous and demanding of others. When balanced we have healthy relationships and are both compassionate and self loving. The entire practice including the asana, restorative poses, pranayama and yoga nidra will be designed to bring balance to this energy center.
The practice begins with a gentle guided vinyasa to release stress in the breath and tension from the muscles and joints. Each restorative pose will be held for about ten to fifteen minutes. Mona will include essential oils during the workshop to help soothe, along with gentle hands on adjustments. The workshop will end with a thirty to forty-minute long yoga nidra designed to balance the heart chakra. ISHTA Community Event to follow in-studio with small bites and beverages w/ Mona and community from 8:15 – 9 pm.
