Next course starts Monday 9th October 2017 in Bournemouth
A deeply reflective and enlightening course, weaving together yoga and psychology for ultimate mind-body transformation…
I have loved the course over the past 7 weeks. I got so much from it that I never expected and it has helped me to grow both personally and professionally. It has helped me to make positive lifestyle changes and solidify habits like daily meditation, relaxation and home practice. 10/10.(Anna)
What is a ‘chakra’?
The chakras are an ancient energy system that provide a road map to explore the intricate relationship between the body, mind and soul. The word chakra means ‘wheel’ or ‘disk’ and refers to an energetic centre in the body which correlates with particular bodily and emotional functions. The chakras provide a practical tool for navigating all areas of life, both on and off the yoga mat.
Here’s an overview of each chakra and what you’ll learn…
Plus you’ll get a great physical workout, clear your mind, replenish your body and meet some new, likeminded people.
This has been a really good journey of self-discovery and enlightenment. It has really made me think about ‘what makes me tick’ and most importantly where I want to be in the future. Thank you for a wonderful course! 10/10 (Jo)
Each weekly 2-hour session will include:
- An overview of the chakra in terms of its connection to the physical body, emotions, and developmental psychology
- Guided reflection to help you to ‘check-in’ with any imbalances
- A yoga practice specifically designed to stimulate each chakra on a physical, mental and emotional level
- Deep relaxation practice (pratyhara) – to balance the ‘doing’ and ‘being’
- Breath practices (pranayama)
- Meditation practices (dhyana)
- Chanting & Mantra (exploring the healing power of sound)
- Affirmations (to plant positive intentions into the subconscious mind)
- Discussion of home practice & lifestyle recommendations
- Supportive sharing – an opportunity for you to share insights / ask questions (however there’s no pressure to share)

What is unique about this course?
This is not just your typical ‘physical’ yoga course; we delve deep into philosophy, psychology, physiology, meditation and practical lifestyle tools that help you to flourish on all levels. By exploring our inner world, we develop a non-judgemental, compassionate understanding of ourselves. Through this awareness, we learn tools to heal old emotional wounds and break negative patterns of behaviour, creating space for growth and transformation. We learn that the body and mind are inseparable, and through working with both, we have the potential to create powerful shifts.
We work from both the ‘outside-in’ (using the physical body and the breath to change how we feel on the inside), as well as the ‘inside-out’ (confronting our thoughts and behaviours to create big shifts in our external world).
This course is a culmination of years of study and teaching in Psychology and Yoga, my own transformational journey, as well as a series of Chakra workshops that I have been delivering over the past year. I am thrilled to share it with you!

- You have an interest in psychology / yoga philosophy / spirituality
- You want something that is more than just ‘gym-style’ yoga, something deeper, personal and supportive
