Join Lisa Sanfilippo, one of triyoga’s long standing and
broadly experienced teachers, for a very special day retreat.
Using the 7 energy centres (chakras) as your starting point, you’ll
discover the areas in which you have the most power and the areas
where you want and need more energy.
Experience physical, energetic and inner practises that align to
each chakra area, each one helping you to support yourself, be
creative, express your will, love deeply, voice what’s true, follow
your intuition and feel more spiritually connected.
A dynamic and powerful asana sequence with precise alignment will
break through congestion, freeing the more subtle energies,
followed by Tantric based (embodied) meditation and visualisation
practises, taking you to new places of experience. Deep restorative
postures will nourish and heal imbalances.
Morning practice: The Garden of Earthly
The first four chakras represent the earthly aspects of ourselves
and our nature. We’ll explore the elements of earth, water and fire
and air moving through us. Learning and understanding how to:
- Staying grounded when things change
- Harnessing eros and creativity
- Activating or tempering our will-power
- Connecting the earthly to our ability to love deeply
Afternoon practice: Bring Me a Higher Love
From the middle (4th chakra) upwards, we find the more subtle
aspects of the ‘self’ represented by the elements of air, sound,
consciousness and connectivity.
Learning and understanding how to:
- Act with compassion
- To express ourselves truthfully
- Listening to our intuition
- Feeling connected to universal truth
Suitable for those with some yoga experience, and an invitation
particularly for trainee teachers, as well as seasoned teachers
seeking for new conversation and inspiration to deeper their
understanding and teaching of the chakra system.
This workshop credits many sources and offers a unique approach.
Lisa blends nearly two decades of yoga practice and more than a
decade of teaching with studies of Tantric philosophy and ongoing
training in the field of transpersonal psychotherapy. She draws
upon and credits the work of Anodea Judith, the world’s foremost
authority on the Chakra system, having studied her work, and taught
with Anodea in London. Lisa’s unique approach combines yoga
practices of asana, pranayama and meditation with sophisticated
alignment, touring the chakras with an understanding of the five
koshas, the ‘Jungian functions’ (thinking, feeling sensing and
intuiting) and a model of transformation based in the 5 Elements.
This makes for a rich background to an elegant and profoundly
