Power of Relaxation

2:00 - 4:00pm

Yogi Ashokananda will examine what is meant by true relaxation – a state that leads to self healing, good health, happiness and increased productivity. 

Harnessing the energy of your subtle body and acquiring self-knowledge are key to relaxing into your true self and realising your inner power.  Yogi will highlight the traditional yogic beliefs that have influenced the meditation & mindfulness techniques and practices and will delve a little deeper into:

  • Importance of yoga & posture
  • Effects of relaxation on the nervous system
  • Power of Self-realisation
  • Breath & Prana

You will be guided through basic relaxation practices, a fully guided meditation and Yogi will provide you with techniques to help you on your journey of self-discovery by encouraging self-examination, self-awareness and self-acceptance. 

These practices will allow you to relax into your authentic self without the pressure of having to be “happy” all the time.  When this pressure is released, you will feel more content and fulfilled.  You will become more aware of your own patterns of behaviour and the split between your material personality and your spiritual self is healed.  As life around you becomes increasingly frenetic, it is increasingly important to find inner stillness. 

The practices are based on embracing the whole self and trying to create a sense of humanity, through accepting and transforming the lower three chakras, concerned with grounding, rootedness, mental and physical constipation, anger, sexuality, self-confidence, greed and lust. 

Your spirit or soul is already perfect and whole; it does not require healing.  All it needs is space for you to experience your highest self.  You can accomplish this by clearing the physical and emotional pathways to it and ridding yourself of samskaras (the imprints n your personality of unused emotions from experiences).  

Finding peace at the physical level and not running away from yourself in your mind is key.  You will take away from this session practices to help you find a long-lasting peace within yourself that allows you to be with all your emotions and feelings without the veneer of “positive thinking”.  In this way, you can be your true, authentic self, connected and compassionate with yourself and others.
