Maternity Chakras: A Pathway for Pregnant Awakening

The ancient chakra system with its structures of subtle energy pathways and confluence of energy centres has informed yoga practice for millennia It offers us all a truly holistic map to help us know ourselves fully and live freely.

The journey through the chakras is the journey of discovery and healing; travelled many times by yoginis but rarely in pregnancy.

And yet pregnancy is the journey from mystery to manifestation and from instinct to transcendence. Pregnancy is transformational whether you like it or not. When consciousness is brought to the process, the transformation can be healing, empowering, integrated and stabilised. As the body expands and opens so does the heart, the mind and awareness. Perceiving pregnancy and birth through the lens of the chakras enables deep insight into the multidimensional aspects of the experience and of the potential of yoga practice too.

On this 9 week course you will:

  • Discover both the classical and modern western teachings and practices of Chakra Yoga and learn how to apply Chakra Theory and practice to the Maternity Experience in this specialised professional training.
  • Offer your students a clear holistic pathway through the pregnancy, birth and becoming mother/parent experience using the teachings and philosophy of the chakras.
  • Learn ancient and modern chakra theory, how to access and work at the energy body level and how to apply chakra teachings and practices to the maternity experience so that you prepare your students in the best possible way for an empowered pregnancy, birth and postnatal experience.

Testimonials:

“I loved the course, what a wonderful experience and sangha you created, via zoom no less. It was nurturing and nourishing and wonderful to connect with other expectant mamas in these strange times. I feel much more confident and I really noticed the shift from trepidation to excitement for my upcoming birth growing each week of the course. The penultimate class on the third eye with all of the breath work and meditation ushered me into experiencing a real sense of calm and readiness for motherhood and birth.”
