A Journey Through the Chakras

Chakras are the “lungs” of the subtle energy body that contain vital information affecting us on: Physical, Psychological, Emotional and Spiritual levels. Our habit patterns, thoughts, emotions, physical and spiritual well-being are determined by the programming contained in these energy centres. The experience of well-being on all levels, spiritual awakening and manifesting our needs in the material world all depend on how open and balanced these chakras are.

In this course, we will work with the 7 major chakras that will enable you to awaken and transform the ‘hidden’ code within yourself. In this 21 day journey our study of chakras with practices both from the Yogic and Taoist traditions will enable you to unravel your own issues, be they physical, mental or emotional.

You will study:
• Yoga Sequences to balance each of the 7 chakras
• Qi Gong practices to awaken and balance the chakras
• Meridians and their relationship with Chakras
• Chakras with Yin Yoga

In the words of Katy Bhogal…

The Online 21-day chakra journey was an outstandingly impressive and successful journey led by Shilpa. Together we explored the effects of chakras in yoga postures, breathing techniques, moving and sitting-meditation, and yoga Nidra. Starting from Muladhara, the foundation earthly chakra to Sahasrara where divine thought and consciousness dawns was truly a magical journey. It inspired my yoga practices with understanding and illumination that is rare. I feel there is a life-changing turn and I feel enormously confident and energetic. I can feel the power in my muscles and thinking. I feel grounded, upright and light moving around with an echo of Shilpa’s words “ still, quiet, focused, and concentrated mind” wheeling around in my head.

I have to pull myself up once in a while but I am a lot more clear, gathered, and released from stresses and strifes. I am at peace with myself and the world around me. The explorations chakra journey was highly thorough, educational, spiritual yet provided a physically tough and solid grounding. The postures were energizing, tough yet light. The evolutionary science of chakras explains a lot of what goes on in the human psyche. You begin to understand “ I am that I am “The chakras have always been part of most of our previous practices but my own knowledge and understanding were just skimming on the water surface. After the 21-day journey with Shilpa there has been a sudden lightening effect. The wonderful experience has enabled me to go that much deeper into the spirit and wisdom of yoga masters and feel those vibrations I never understood before. Every day for 21 days integrated yoga practices started with inspiring moving meditations or hip opening leading to Sun salutations, shoulderstands , boat poses leading to sitting meditation, or yoga Nidra left us feeling refreshed and pure. The moving meditation has brought a fine transformation in my movements and opened up many ways of postures and breathing techniques. we had Amazing breath sessions, letting go of stress and strife and cultivating a quiet stillness of mind and lightness of body with “ Soham mantra”. It was soothing and sacred, encircling oneself in the circle of light. Sacred moments like that heal hearts and eyes. A lasting achievement!Initially, I was a bit hesitant doing an online ( I am terrible at tech.) but after the first session, I never looked back. The instructions were clear and precise and I didn’t have to look over anyone’s shoulders. I was there with the teacher alone! Every session was fulfilling and full of pleasure. Breathing with the tongue rolled back or touching the palate has now become a common practice anyone with a love for yoga and the science behind the postures would benefit from such courses enormously.I am looking forward to my next adventure and in the hands of Shilpa, such an adventure is always a thing of beauty and joy. Thank you, Shilpa Peace, love, light, and joy. Always…

What our participants felt about the Journey……

In the words of Crystal Yee…

I’ve studied with Shilpa for some time so the journey through the chakras is not totally new for me. But it continues to amaze me how strong my conditioning and samskaras are and how quickly old thought patterns and habits return. I feel that working with the chakras is a systematic, concrete way to become aware of these strong patterns and to consider whether they are serving me in the path to freedom from suffering. It’s a powerful way to guide a yoga class as well and I do plan to incorporate into my own classes. The philosophy that everything is just happening and it’s how we react to it is also valuable to me. It’s an important reminder to trust that everything comes to us for a reason and we can learn and love so much in this life! This was the perfect way to start 2020 for me. Thanks again Shilpa for a lovely, inspiring, insightful and blissful 14 days ❤

In the words of Cynthia Fon…

14 consecutive days of practice is true enlightenment to all the miseries in life. As I journeyed through each chakra, the darkness in each aspect of life was brought to light. Those which were unspoken & unexpressed as I was either too young or not wise enough to handle, are now lining up for their turns to be examined & dealt with. It is as though life is giving me a second chance to re-live the moments with a wiser choice. With this awareness of darkness & the choices I actually have, I am grounding in the present while looking back to the past with more understanding, loving-kindness & forgiveness. Being mindful that “I cannot turn back time & change the past, but I can learn something from it”, I flow through life more at ease. How could I not be grateful for such a wonderful journey & the opportunity to live life to the fullest?

In the words of Sara Maestranzi…

A journey through chakras during this unexpected time which found us quite unprepared, it has been the perfect tool to transform a period full of uncertainties into an extremely special time.Though attending virtually was the most challenging part of this course, it turned out to be the power of it.I really experienced the energy of the group even being physically alone; I was forced to find a place at my home to practice yoga and being able to establish a routine, transforming the practice into a habit.A combination of factors gave us this opportunity and we just flew with.A rare experience, a gift.Thank you Shilpa.

In the words of Cecile Allan who described her journey...

“Thanks to your teaching, guidance and insights, I was able to do a deep introspection within myself. The effect on body and mind afterwards was so incredible. I truly enjoyed the holistic approach you had on this course incorporating Qi Gong, yoga practice, and meditation for each chakra.

Working on each chakra my experience and feeling were as follows:
-Mūlādhāra, the root Chakra: I felt grounded after our practice.
-Swadhistana, the sacral chakra: our emotion centre. During the practice of Hip opening I wanted to cry. I talked to you and you helped me to realise I was still dealing with a personal loss.
-Manipura, the solar plexus chakra,. Our willpower. I felt a strong connection between body and mind and much more awareness of my surroundings afterwards.
-Anahata, the heart chakra. During the practice and especially on the meditation part, I felt an outpour of love and cried uncontrollably, acknowledging my personal loss and the sorrow I was carrying still within. Crying was really cleansing, and I felt lighter afterwards. Releasing the pain and letting it go was really a wonderful experience.
-Ajna the third eye chakra. Felt a sense of space and tranquillity working with different breathing techniques.
-Sahasrara, the Crown chakra. I discovered yoga Nidra and how deep within yourself you can go. After the meditation, I felt I went on a beautiful journey within myself. I felt a sense of peace and serenity.

Physicality is not everything in Yoga. Combined with meditation and breathing enables one quieten the mind and find the realm of peace,, love and happiness which lies within you . Thank you Shilpa for putting us on the path of consciousness and Liberation.”

In the words of Norliza Khan…

“When I started this course I was going through anxiety issues and was prescribed medication. I was stressed out with running my firm I had set up 2 years ago and I was also in logger heads with my 2 older daughters. My father was also in icu. This course has helped me deal with my anxiety. I have not taken the medication recently. I also have become a lot calmer and am no longer angry and stressed out as much.

It came to me during one of the meditations that my firm is not my purpose but a means to my higher purpose. It also came to me that my current purpose is to embrace motherhood and letting go of control when dealing with my kids and to be “kinder” when I speak to them. I am learning to “trust” that my needs will be met.

It has been an incredible journey for and I am glad I did this Today when I got up from shavasana and closed my eyes my light was really bright and very still and serene. Almost like a big tv screen and in that moment I felt different- like a calm peaceful emptiness. It was surreal to me. Thank you Shilpa for this journey.”
