Leli and I got such great feedback after our recent ‘Balancing your Chakra’ workshop in Stanford, that we are planning another one in December, this time at my studio in Stellenbosch. Full info below. All welcome but space is limited so please book ASAP if keen.
Balance your Chakras – a yoga workshop with Leli Hoch and Nicci Annette, Certified Yoga Teachers
Saturday 10 December 2011 | 9-11h30am | Stellenbosch
Imagine – A peaceful setting in this historical town. Intense yoga practice, quiet breath-work, meditation, relaxation. Unwind and relax in the frenetic run-up to Christmas. And afterwards, enjoy tea, Leli’s famous cake and like-minded company.
We invite you to invigorate your body, soothe your soul and discover a deeper and more profound notion of your Self.
Chakra is the Sanskrit word for wheel, and these seven “wheels” were thought of as spinning vortexes of energy, arranged vertically from the base of the spine to the top of the head, where we receive, absorb and distribute life energies.
Each chakra is associated with particular functions within the body and with specific life issues and the way we handle them, both inside ourselves and in our interactions with the world. Through external situations and internal habits, a chakra can become either deficient or excessive—and therefore imbalanced.
In our extended yoga class, we will focus on balancing all chakras through specific asanas (postures), pranayama (breathing exercises) and relaxation.
We teach a gentle Vinyasa yoga, inspired by a variety of powerful, lovely and humorous teachers. The yoga we believe in is fun. Above all, it is transformative, fascinating, and, at times, a challenging mixture of focused breath, asanas and meditation, a way of holding space and moving through it. We are on that journey ourselves and probably always will be.
Our classes are suited to all levels: from beginners to intermediate students, young and old, male and female, from the frenzied urban mind to the chilled green soul and everyone in between.
What yoga seeks is union: a union between the body and mind, a union between friends and enemies, right and wrong, hot and cold and light and dark. Helping two forces, forces that at first appear so different, to form a harmonious connection. This is yoga.
The studio at Yoga With Nicci is on the banks of the Eerste River in Die Laan, opposite the beautiful mountain walks and dam of Coetzenberg, and just a few minutes’ walk from the town centre, the Botanical Gardens and a whole lot more. See www.yogawithnicci.co.za for full directions.
Spaces are limited, so please book ASAP:
