I’m thrilled to welcome you to a new 8 week online session that incorporates Eden Energy Medicine, Mindful Energy Yoga, Mudra and Yoga Nidra.
Each week I will post a series of prerecorded video practices on this page that blend yoga, energy medicine and mudras to work with each chakra. There will be a brief introductory video, a short (~10 minute) meditation with Mudra for each chakra, and a Mindful Energy Yoga class (45-60 minutes), as well as a short video for essential practices to balance each chakra in the moment.
The first class will be an introduction to the Daily Energy Routine of Eden Energy Medicine, and the final class will be a full length Yoga Nidra (90 minutes).
As we begin our work together, please remember: these practices are offered for you as suggestions. It is essential for you to work with your own body; if you have any preexisting conditions or mental or physical concerns, please check with your own health care provider before beginning this or any other movement based program. These practices are NOT a substitute for more traditional physical or mental health care. If your body says NO to anything offered here, please listen to it. Visualizing the practices that do not feel right are energetically helpful as well. I will include suggested modifications we move through the practices.
Our work here is to learn how to most skillfully inhabit the body/mind/heart and spirit which we have been given in this lifetime, learning to navigate this precious human life with more ease.
Get to know yourself again!
Re-Embody, Self Empower and come to life more fully with increased resilience, vitality and love!
