AVA IRANI

 

Journey through the Chakras  / 90mins

A mini yoga & meditation workshop into the ancient chakra system.

The chakra system correlates with the glands, organs and functions of the human body. For yogis and people interested in healing, the chakras are a map. An excellent map. One of the most complete and profound maps. The chakras give us information about what might be out of balance and what it takes to elevate our consciousness. On an esoteric level, the chakras are our greatest opportunity to understand universal energies, how we can tap into paranormal powers and prioritise our evolution.

Once we have the map, we can choose our own path.

What to expect: This mini workshop will outline clearly, from a traditional and esoteric standpoint, each chakra, how they work and how we can balance and energise them towards a greater more balanced evolution.


Sublimation Workshop  / 45mins

Both workshops function best if taken together, although its not necessary.

Sublimation is a practice that can be found across all esoteric traditions, the alchemy of turning 'lead' into 'gold'. Ava explains sublimation from a Hatha Yoga perspective, why its necessary and how to optimise the practice. She will also bring in a perspective of the Heart, or pure consciousness, and how we can sublimate anything, any emotion, any energy, any 'undesirable' instance into the Gold of pure existence. This workshop is for beginners and advanced practitioners a like as it will deepen your inspiration from the level you are at.
