Chakra Yoga & Art Series (Oct – Nov, 2019)

Creative Workshop with Evie Dunville & Laura Gibson!

Chakras are the main energy centres responsible for receiving, flow and release of life Energy (prana, chi) and form the main link between the body and the mind. They are located along the spine, and they are distributed to seven levels on which the energy vibrates.

In this 6 week series workshop, you will be led through understanding your chakras from root to crown through yoga practice, oils, meditation, breath work and intuitive expression through creative art.

You will experience flow and yin yoga, creativity, movement and balance every week based around a new chakra, completing the series with a sense of balance and finished art pieces based on the chakras to remind you of your experience. You will also receive a special chakra gift from Laura Lotus Love at the completion of the full program!
