Episode 139// Alive in the City of Jewels

April 14th, 2015 · Comments

Beloveds,

SO happy to be here together. Thank you (always & forever) for sharing your practice. This episode features a 75 minute class I taught as part of Happy Mindful People's Chakra-Balancing Series. This class focuses on the Manipura Chakra. It is a little spicy! I hope you enjoy it.

A little about Chakras

Chakras (ch sounds like the ch in cherry, not sh) are part of the subtle body anatomy. Chakra means wheel in Sanskrit and refers to energy wheels or vortexes in the body along the length of the spine or central channel (sushumna in Sanskrit). The idea is that when the chakras are spinning like they ought to, we are flowing in all aspects, the central channel is clear and we may experience the serpent of kundalini rising up that channel. (See, this is the super- nutshell version.  For a more thorough introduction read this.)

Manipura chakra, "city of jewels" in Sanskrit, corresponds in the physical bod with the solar plexus. This chakra relates to our sense of self, the truth we know in our gut, or true heart. If we are out of balance here, we equate our self with the duties, jobs and roles we play in our physical lives. Manipura invites us to see the self as the light, love and aliveness beyond those limited roles. When we align with the LOVE that is at our core, we realize the power of manipura.

This chakra is associated with the sense of sight, the element of fire, the Ram and (conveniently for our memory), the sound of RAM (pronounced ruhm).

Episode 119// Head-Stand From The True-Heart

November 18th, 2014 · Comments

Sunrose Yoga Podcast/ Online Yoga Class with Kelly Sunrose/

Hi beautiful people,

So glad to be here with you today. I taught this class this morning, under a balsamic moon. It is clear and cold here in Portland, and we began class with a discussion about how autumn is affecting our bodies and energy. This time of year (in the Northern Hemispehere) tends to scatter and pull our energy and can leave us feeling depleted. We worked with some centering in the Manipura Chakra, physically located around the solar plexus. It felt very grounding!

This class is an all-levels class, where we get into the nitty-gritty of the shoulders and core. We practice sirsasana using the 3-block method. If you have never practiced this before, check out this video first.

Also, NO WEIGHT ON YOUR HEAD! (I rarely give directions in all-caps, so you know I mean it. <3)

Thank you for being here.

LOVE.
