Firstly Jessica will guide you through a Muladhara root chakra meditation using breath (pranayama) and sound vibration (mantra) to establish a connection to this energetic foundation. The meditation will be followed by slow flowing vinyasa yoga sequences to release tension in this area and explore physically our relationship with this energy. Closing with deep relaxation as we visualise the healing properties of the colour red and qualities of prosperity and nourishment associated with the root chakra, leading into a sweet, surrendered savasana on the earth.
Shelena of Blo.aum will then welcome you to a space of mindful creativity, working with nature's palette. She will guide you in spiralling your very own hand-tied bouquet. Intuitively piece together your personal bouquet from a range of seasonal flowers, noting their grounding hues and textures while immersing yourself in this meditative experience.
Amanda will then help us set intentions for the season by writing a love note to ourselves, tied onto our bouquet.
