Welcome to your Water Element Yoga Class for Fluidity and Flexibility!
Your yoga class today embraces the sacral chakra elements of going with the flow and embracing fluidity on and off the yoga mat. This vinyasa yoga class includes hip opening postures, dynamic stretching and strength building exercises and will leave your whole body feeling stronger (and softer like water)!
Throughout the yoga class you’ll work through postures like hanging cobra, rolling plank to upward dog, warrior II with goddess pumps, skandasana, sacral squats, and seal the practice with a pranayama.
Join me on the mat and together we’ll tap into our sacral chakra by embracing play and pleasure as we connect with our bodies and learn to listen to our needs!
Here’s my question for you today… do you struggle with going with the flow (hah, who doesn’t)?
We’re a species of doing – a masculine energy – and our daily lives require quite a bit of it.
From doing loads of laundry, cleaning your home, grocery shopping, tending to your family, to stepping on your yoga mat daily…. we spend a lot of time in this doing energy, which makes it difficult to let go and just be (aka rest and receive).
Because of this, we need to intentionally incorporate ways of feeling and being.
This is where the sacral chakra, svadhisthana, enters the conversation.
Let’s chat about this chakra ➡️ the activity here is feeling, the element is water, and it’s a predominantly yin, feminine energy center. It’s connected to fluidity, movement, change, receptivity, creativity and sexuality.
Because of this energetic makeup, the sacral chakra is an adaptable, fun, playful, and pleasurable place to keep riding the river of your energy (versus attempting to jump ship or paddle upstream).
This chakra encourages us to mimic water — to be fluid, flexible and go with the flow.
So ask yourself….. Where can you let go? Where can you let fun in? Where can you just be and receive?
This element is a reminder to do what water would do; ebb and flow, remain malleable, adaptable, shapeable, and fluid and flexible, so you can bend versus break when change and challenge occur.
Today’s yoga class is your opportunity to do all of this, to embrace the fluidity of femininity, and allow pleasure and play to be part of your journey.
And what about having fun off the mat, can we talk about that?
For some this could be a spa day, video chats with friends, painting, or taking a bubble bath. For others this could be long walks, camping outdoors, or a family dance party. There are so many variations of what pleasure, play and fun can be, and you get to choose which variation is right for you (but do choose, please).
