Roots of Divine Love – The Root Chakra

The first of our seven-part series, focusing on the physical, metaphysical and mythological/archetypal aspects of the Root chakra. Here, one can get a sense of the true nature of yoga, of which the asana practice (physical postures) only forms a small part of. The rishis of 5000+ years ago knew this mystical way of being and doing, and now it is available to all of us!

In the the sign of the fishes, we can connect today with inspiration (to allow for spirit to pass through us), art, especially poetry, imagination, and all the ways we can express that which is ineffable. With this little side project of Kai Von Pannier and I, we endeavor to showcase that yoga is so much more than just physical postures on the mat, and is instead a way of living and being, in alignment with our Soul’s expression.

This video is the first of our seven-part series, focusing on the physical, metaphysical and mythological/archetypal aspects of the Root chakra, revealing that for which we do not have words for, unless expressed through poetry, mythology and art. If we only think in terms of facts, we miss the truth and the magic which is right there in front of us. Please take 6 minutes of your day to let the essence of the root chakra wash over you, and connect with us if you wish to explore yoga in all its glorious facets.

Finding Your Soul Mat

Selecting the ideal yoga mat for your practice is a very personal choice and can be quite confusing! There are so many questions that need to be answered. Questions like “Will I slip?”, “Is it suitable for for hot yoga?”, “Is it eco-friendly?”, “how long will it last?” “What colour?” are just a few of the most common asked.

It can be a daunting task and it is an important one as your mat is your space and you need to be comfortable with your mat for a long time. You don’t want to worry about your prime support system when doing your practice, after all the mat has to be ‘there’ with you.

I will be featuring a series of videos that have been developed by Manduka that will help you select your soul mat. The very first one will give an overview of Manduka’s most popular mats. There is one for everyone, I can guarantee it ! So here goes with the first video: Enjoy.


Oh, I almost forgot, all the mats featured are available from Yoga Essentials, so you can just order from their online store.

Chakras explained

 

“Your Energy is worth more than any materialistic object. The greatest gift that you could give to others, as well as to yourself is your thoughts, intentions and energetic love. Use your energy to bless your loved ones.”

Chances are that if you’ve attended a yoga class, meditation sessions or a reiki class, you’ve probably heard this word. But for those of you who are new to this whole concept let me explain what Chakras are..

Literally, “chakra” from the Sanskrit translates to “wheel” or “disk,” it also references a spiritual “energy centre” in the human body, of which there are seven along the spine, and through the neck and the crown of your head.

As spiritual as these things seem, they’ve somewhat become a trend in the social media community, along with yoga and crystals. Fact is that they have been around since 500 BC, found in the Vedas (earliest Sanskrit literary records.)

“So what do they do?”

They are each linked to specific organs as well as physical, emotional, psychological, emotional, and spiritual states of your being and influence all areas of your life, through pure healing energy all around us as well as within us ( Olivia Fern )

Note: there isn’t much scientific evidence that translates spiritual energy into physical manifestations, the study of the seven chakras and chakra alignment—whether it be through meditation, reiki, or yoga—is rooted in the belief is that “when the chakras are open and aligned, our energy is constantly free-flowing ( Olivia Fern ).

 

So let me get on to explaining the 7 Chakras:

The Root Chakra:

What it is: (AKA first chakra) “the foundation of your house (your body)” —it’s solid, stabilizing, and supportive, keeping everything safely connected as long as it’s functioning properly. It’s associated with the base of the spine, the pelvic floor, and the first three vertebrae. This Chakra is responsible for an individual’s sense of security and survival.  Therefore, it’s closely linked to your basic needs such as food, water, shelter, and safety, as well as your more emotional needs such as alleviating fear and feeling safe. As you well know, when these needs are met, you tend to worry less.

When it’s blocked: A variety of afflictions can occur from blockages, including anxiety disorders, fears, or nightmares. Physically, the first chakra is associated with problems in the colon, the bladder, elimination, or with lower back, leg, or feet issues.

 

The Sacral Chakra:

What it is: This Chakra is located above the pubic bone and below the bellybutton, it’s responsible for our sexual and creative energies. It is associated with the colour orange and the element of water, when your sacral chakra is aligned, you will likely feel great: You’re friendly, passionate, and successfully fulfilled while experiencing the feelings of wellness, abundance, pleasure, and joy. (Sounds amazing to me, don’t you think?)

When it’s blocked: This usually happens when you have a creative block or your emotions are a tad bit unstable. Likewise, this can also be associated with physical sexual problems; you can also be experiencing fear of change, depression, or addictive behaviour.

 

 

The Solar Plexus Chakra:

What it is: The third is said to be your “Confidence Chakra” your very own source of individual power, your rule of confidence. It focuses on your willpower, personal power, and commitment.” Located from the belly button to about your ribcage, it reportedly controls

all things metabolic, digestive, and stomach-related.

When it’s blocked: You can suffer from lack of self-confidence, have difficulty making decisions, and may have anger or control issues. Note that it’s not just feeling badly about yourself, but also may lead you to outwardly express apathy, procrastination, or that you’re able to be taken advantage of easily. Likewise, you’ll also possibly have a tummy ache of some kind such as digestive issues or gas. (How awful.)

 

The Heart Chakra:

What it is: This is known as the central chakra, found at the centre of your chest, it represents where the physical self and the spiritual self-meet. It’s physically said to enclose the heart, the thymus gland (which plays a vital role in your endocrine and lymphatic system), the lungs, and the breasts. “It’s the awakening to spiritual awareness, forgiveness, and service,” says Olivia. This Chakra is associated with the colour green and pink (yes, the millennial, rose quartz kind), it’s believed that when your heart chakra is aligned and balanced, love and compassion flow freely. (Giving and receiving.)

When it’s blocked: A closed heart chakra can show signs of grief, anger, jealousy, fear of betrayal, and hatred toward yourself and others (remember this)—especially in the form of holding a grudge against something or someone.

 

The Throat Chakra:

What it is: This one is all about speaking your inner truth ( Finally ). The throat chakra rules all communication. The throat chakra is linked to the thyroid, parathyroid, jaw, neck, mouth, tongue, and larynx. When this chakra is in check, you’re able to fully listen as well as speak and express yourself clearly.

When it’s blocked:  You may struggle to speak your truth, you find it hard to pay attention and stay focused, or fear judgment from others. Physically, this blockage may cause a sore throat, thyroid issues, neck and shoulder stiffness, or tension headaches.

 

 

 

The Third-Eye Chakra:

What it is: You can find this Chakra located between your eyebrows. Organs including the pituitary gland, eyes, head, and lower part of the brain are said to be controlled by the third eye.

 

When it’s blocked: You may have trouble clocking into your intuition, trusting your inner voice, remembering important facts, or learning new skills. A third-eye blockage is linked with depression, anxiety, and a more judgmental attitude—while physically, it’s said to cause headaches, dizziness, and a massive pot of other brain-health issues.

 

 

 

The Crown Chakra:

What it is: It’s known as the centre of enlightenment. As the name suggests, the seventh chakra located at the crown of your head. When aligned, you are said to notice pure awareness, consciousness. (Basically, bigger than yourself.)

When it’s blocked: A crown-chakra blockage may create feelings of isolation or emotional distress—basically feeling disconnected from everyone and everything. Or, you might feel like your normal self—just not in an exalted state of spiritual connection and enlightenment, which is totally okay and seriously normal. Unlike the other chakras, the crown chakra is often only opened up fully through specific yogic or meditative exercises.

 

Now that you have an understanding on what your different Chakras are, and what they affect when blocked, we need to learn how to balance and heal them.

Keep in mind to read our next blog post, out on 23rd May. 

Thats all from me.

Meet March’s Yoga Studio/ Instructor of the Month: Tiziana le Roux

As humble and as strong as they come.

Tiziana le Roux is known to the Durban Yoga Community as a kind, charitable and yet such  a strong and powerful woman.

Stepping off of the body building stage and onto a Yoga Mat, Tiziana has since made an impression on many Yogi’s in the Durban/Umhlanga area.

Holding intensive Yoga classes, this woman shows no mercy, but pushes you with a smile, to only achieve your best and encourage you to grow.

She also takes joy in teaching littlies and introducing them to the world of serenity though yoga practice.

This mom of 3 sounded like a force, we wanted to get to know and a heart that we wanted to introduce to you.


How and what was the motivation that made you start Yoga?

I decided in 2014 to try a new form of exercise having being in the industry since I was young. Formerly a ballet dancer, gym addict, personal trainer and competitive  body builder. Yoga was something I always looked upon as being similar to my dance life and thought it was something I would like to explore more.

 

How long have you been practising?

I’ve been a yogi for 4years.

 

What type of Yoga do you teach/practise?

I teach Hatha, restorative and children’s Yoga.

 

What do you enjoy most about this particular form of Yoga?

Hatha is traditional yoga and for everyone. You dont have to be flexible, fit or a certain body type. It’s for everyone and easy to follow. Obviously it is also graded beginner, intermediate and advanced.

 

Why is Yoga important to you?

I love yoga as it grounds me and keeps me supple and peaceful..

 

How do you build relationships through Yoga?

People that do yoga understand the mindset of yogis and somehow we connect without having to ask too much as there seems to be a spiritual understanding.

 

In what point in your teaching career did you decide- I want to open a Yoga Studio?

I started yoga and was quite frustrated not understanding the full concept of the “art” and wanted to explore the philosophy and background more so decided to do a course in 2015 in order for me to be able to open my own studio.

 

What are some of the challenges you’ve experienced as a Yoga instructor/studio owner?

Challenges are part of life and I think it’s keeping people interested and motivated . It’s not a priority for some people to do yoga as they don’t see results as quickly as maybe someone that pushes weights. They ya e to understand yoga is a lifestyle and it’s about letting go the ego and accepting self.

 

What is your favourite memory of opening the studio?

During my teachers training , I decided the only way to learn and understand and develop confidence was to open a studio immediately . So what I did was run a studio from my home which was formerly my gym and ran it on a charity basis. I decided to get a bunch of volunteers to come to my classes and in exchange of my teaching they were to provide food for the SPCA which I collected in my garage. At the end of the year I had the Northglen News come over and photograph my students and our huge collection of food donation. It was a great moment.

 

What piece of advice can you give to future yoga studio owners?

Never give up on your studio. Even if one person comes. Give them you undivided attention and positive energy they always come to get.

 

What’s the most difficult situation you run into on a constant basis?

Now that I charge people it’s always a challenge and I don’t like chasing people for payment. At the end of the day I run a business.

 

How did you decide upon your class offerings, type of yoga instructors and the vibe of your studio?

I plan my classes according the week’s theme, be it twists, inversions, meditation etc I don’t have outside teachers teaching.

 

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Hopefully still teaching but doing more charity work and helping children more.

 

What is your greatest achievement in life?

My greatest achievement in life is raising three beautiful healthy, content, daughters, and instilling a sense of love , honesty, compassion and independence in them. Besides that just keeping myself in shape is a great achievement.

 

What is your greatest strength and does that show through in your practice?

I’m a very determined person by nature and love a challenge. I never give up on what I set my mind to. I’m physically and mentally strong so it does give me an edge in life.

 

Do you see Yoga as a way of life or a form of exercise and meditation? (please elaborate)

Yoga is a way of life. It encompasses so many aspects of ones life, physical mental and spiritual. One becomes very aware of life and self and how we treat one another and in particular ourselves . To not judge and be hard on one self but to be more accepting. To create a community of like-minded people who resonate an understand peace love and harmony in nature and life itself. Meditation is listening to god, prayer is talking to god so we do both 🙏🏻


Tizi, you’re so inspirational, and Im sure that our readers and followers, after reading this interview agree.

Meet March’s Teacher of the Month: Natasia Cook

 

Her first passion was dance.

Having trained in various forms of dance since the age of 5 and later working as a professional ballet dancer for 7 years, Natasia had gained a huge respect for the “incredible human body and its ability to transform and heal itself.”

After retiring from the stage she moved into the corporate world and later studied Reflexology & Meridian Therapy, registering as a Therapeutic Reflexologist and running her very own practice “The Sole Sanctuary” for 6 years.

Continuously returning to and reverting from the corporate world over the years, Natasia learned a great deal but not quite enough to feed her soul.  Until she discovered the practice and her Yoga journey commenced in 2001 : the day Natasia took her first Yoga class.

Finding Yoga felt like coming home.

Through-ought her journey, Natasia has been exposed to the Hatha, Iyengar, Ashtanga Vinyasa, Indieyoga, Sivananda, Budokon, Yoga Synergy, Yin/Restorative, Partner/Acro and Dharma styles, thus helping her discover where her interests lie – in body alignment and the healing potential of Yoga.

Natasia was blessed with phenomenal teachers who, evidently made an impact that changed her life.

I am grateful to my teachers;

The late Ingrid Eriksen was her guidance into teaching in 2008,  Kerry Weavind’s ( from Haum of Yoga (now Indieyoga)) insightful and life changing 200hr Indieyoga course (2013) was the inspiration behind Natasia’s leap from her day job and journey into sharing this incredible art and discipline as her full time passion.

I never realized that I would love teaching so much! What a privilege it is to interact with people from all walks of life and watch as they develop their own awareness, strength and peace

Natasia started Namaste Yoga studio on an impulse in 2008 and it has grown over the years to become her very own “happy place, community and purpose.”

Intrigued? ( Keep reading. )

 

What are some of the challenges you’ve experienced as a Yoga instructor/studio owner?

*The biggest challenge (apart from the usual business owner’s challenges of paying all the bills and multitasking) is finding time to get on the mat for myself. I don’t think I’m alone in this as we all tend to teach at the same times, so it’s a bit of a juggling act. Staying true to the discipline of the practice and keeping it fresh are always on my mind.

 

What is your favorite memory of opening the studio?

*The night we opened our new full time premises there was such an amazing energy in the studio; at the after party my best friend’s 9 year old daughter was dancing unselfconsciously while everybody mingled, munched and connected. It warmed my heart so much as I looked around and drank it all in.

 

What piece of advice can you give to future yoga studio owners?

*I definitely don’t have all the answers as I’m always trying to figure things out too, but I think to be organised, consistent and true to your gut feel, while not neglecting yourself.

 

What is the most rewarding part of teaching yoga?

*The connections with the yogis and seeing how they blossom and release their tension. Yoga is such a great leveller as there’s always something that will challenge you and something that feels great, so it keeps you honest as a yogi and teacher!

I love how yoga enables one to disengage from life’s stresses and strains, and that it is non-competitive and non-punitive. Yoga is a unifying force. It speaks to us as human beings and heals on a subtle level as well as a tangible one.

 

How do you build relationships through Yoga?

*How do you build relationships anywhere? By being approachable, treating people with respect & compassion and letting them know they’ve been seen.

 

How have you improved your classes since you started teaching?

*I think as you develop experience you find your own flow, your own unique way of articulating things, and this changes as you change and as you learn more about and from those you teach. Still working on it all the time as I do believe the more you learn the more there is to learn!

 

Do you prefer to instruct small groups, large groups or one on one?

*I’m comfortable with all three as they all offer something different. Individual or small groups offer a chance to really give tailored attention. The group energy in a larger group is contagious though, especially if they’re in a playful mood!

 

What is your greatest achievement in life?
*Reinventing myself several times in different industries and learning to be more adaptable (still working on this one)

 

What makes your yoga classes unique?

I believe my background of 27 years of dance, years of complementary therapy and of course yoga training all combines to give a unique perspective of mind and movement. I think I’m fairly approachable and have been told my classes are playful yet nurturing.

 

Who is your greatest motivator and why?

*I can’t name only one as there have been many over the years! All our yogis, but especially my two 75 and several 60/70 + year old yogis, who show up consistently, do their best and prove how beautifully strong, brave and graceful you can remain through staying on the mat and being engaged with life.  Also anyone who reminds me what compassion is and my teachers, loved ones, friends and colleagues who show grace under pressure daily.

 

Why is Yoga important to you?
* It literally saved my life when I needed to find a way to fill the void that my dancing left. It’s taught me to let go of a lot of the rigid self-discipline and harsh self-criticism that I used to punish myself with, and brought me so much joy. It’s taught me to appreciate my body again, even though it’s not perfect, and enabled me to join a community of like-minded, awesome, authentic individuals!

 

How long have you been practising?

*I’ve been practicing for around 17 years.

 

What type of Yoga do you teach/practice?

I teach Indieyoga, Hatha and occasionally Yin/restorative. However, I believe our teaching is influenced by all that we have experienced before, so some other elements may creep in as the mood takes me. I practise what I can get to; Indie, Yin, Budokon, Hatha, Vinyasa, I’m always exploring!

 

What do you enjoy most about this particular form of Yoga?
*With Indieyoga no two classes are the same; by connecting to your independent spirit you find your own strength, expression and flow, as a teacher and practitioner.

 

Do you see Yoga as a way of life or a form of exercise and meditation? (please elaborate)
*Oh Yoga is a way of life for sure.  Its effects sneak into the rest of your life in a lovely way, whether it’s the ability to detach from drama a little better, practice more self-care and compassion, or shift your perspective as your awareness grows. People often come to yoga as a form of exercise and/or meditation and then the other aspects make themselves felt. A happy side effect is the strength, flexibility and balance it brings, or as one yogi put it: ‘the ability to stand on one leg and scrub your foot in the shower!’

 

What skill would you like to master?

* Ooh I’d love to be able to fly free like a bird!

 

What amazing thing did you do that no one was around to see?
In my dancing days – Six pirouettes (a ballet term: turns on one leg) – pretty close to how I imagine flying must feel actually…

 

What risk is worth taking?

*Following your passion when your gut tells you its right.

 

What is your favorite quote?

*”Lighting another’s candle doesn’t make yours shine any less brightly.”

 

What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?

*When I was debating whether or not to enroll for my Reflexology training my wise Mom asked me, “how long is the course?”. I told her and she said “the time will pass anyway so you may as well do it”. How right she was! It opened me up to a whole new world of complementary healing and, as she always says; “nothing you learn is ever wasted”

  • Incredible!

Meet March’s Yogi of the Month: Chelsea Hall

Introducing our Summer Lovin’ Yogi of the month – Chelsea.

 

 

Evidently this Capetonian is a HUGE animal lover – and proudly veggievore for 9 years running ( and counting ).

She first started practicing yoga back in 2014. From then on Chelsea was never coming back, as her love for the practice only grew stronger ( as it would ).

Over time, her desire to become a teacher thus spreading the love & knowledge of yoga, finally became a reality in 2017, where she was able to complete her 200hr teacher training at YogaLife.

Even as a teacher, Chelsea continues to grow and evolve, staying both mindful and curious, on and off the mat. She loves pizza and ice-cream ( veggie friendly options! )

Her pup, Luca ( who you can also find on Instagram | @lucathewolfdog ), is her “utmost pride and joy, she wouldn’t give him up for anything” 🙂 ( Man’s best friend? More like a woman’s first love. )

Minutes after viewing her entry photo, I was sold and needed to find out more about this gem of a Yogi. I’m sure you would love the privilege to meet her as well, so naturally, I decided to bring the interview to you guys!


How and what was the motivation that made you start Yoga?

Funny enough, Instagram. I was amazed and inspired by the beautiful images and poses I saw online. Only later on, did I realize, that Yoga was about far more than just pretty pictures and being able to bend and fold like pretzel.

 

How long have you been practicing?

I’ve been practicing for about 4 years now.

 

What type of Yoga do you teach/practice?

I practice and teach Vinyasa Yoga, as well as Power Yoga.

 

What do you enjoy most about this particular form of Yoga?

It connects you with your breath, it allows you to move inward and really get a feel for how important the breath and breathing really is. It gives you the freedom to move. It’s also a great workout!

 

Why is Yoga important to you?

Yoga has given life a whole new meaning for me, it has given me a purpose, something to be passionate about. I just want everyone to feel that way about Yoga.

 

What is your Yoga Philosophy?

I don’t really have one to be honest. If it feels good and right, go with it.

 

How has yoga helped you connect with yourself spiritually?

That is honestly still a daily struggle, or lesson. Although, it has helped me become more in-tune, as to what I’m feeling and how I can deal with or overcome any feelings I don’t feel comfortable sitting with.

 

How do you build relationships through Yoga?

You are able to feel and feed off others’ energy and that is amazing, in that it helps you notice those around you, and connect you with the right kind of people, people who share similar interests, or make you feel good. Those kinds of people usually stick around.

 

What obstacles has Yoga helped you overcome?

Ashamedly, I used to be known for my temper and anger issues. Yoga has definitely helped me zone in and calm down considerably. It has allowed me to express myself in a more spiritual way. There are others, but we won’t go into detail!

 

What advice would you like to give beginner Yogi’s?

Don’t be too hard on yourself. If there’s a specific posture you are working on, give it time, practice, and you will see the results. Give yourself the time of day, to dedicate to your practice, even when you feel like you really don’t want to get on your mat, those are the days you really should, but listen to your body, always, it knows best, trust me.

 

How has yoga changed your life?

In too many ways to mention. It has brought such incredible people into my life, it’s given me purpose and happiness beyond compare.

 

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Definitely still doing and teaching Yoga.

 

What is your greatest strength and does that show through in your practice?

I like to think that I have gotten pretty in-tune with myself and with my body, it moves the way it feels, I feel as though this is expressed through my physical practice.

 

What risk is worth taking?

Any. If it is going to get you where you want to be, take the risk!

 

What is your favorite quote?

“Oh, the places you’ll go.” – Dr. Seuss

 

What is your favorite binge food?

Has to be pizza!

 

What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?

Stay curious.

 

What skill would you like to master?

Handstand for sure!

 

What would be your ideal way to spend your weekend?

Sunbathing on the beach, doing yoga and eating all the yummy food.

 

What is your claim to fame?

I make a mean Mojito hahah…

 

What city would you most like to live in?

London.

 

What is the luckiest thing that’s ever happened to you?

I’m actually quite lucky when it comes to winning Instagram competitions, I’ve won a few!

 

What is the best compliment that you’ve ever received?

Hmmm…I often get comments like, “You’re so inspiring!” or, “You make it look so easy!” and, “Wow, that is so beautiful.” – these kinds of comments make me feel good, because I can only hope that I am actually inspiring and motivating others to pursue their own interests and passion.


No words.


OH and just before you guys decide to click on the “X” on the right/left hand side of your screen to close this tab.

CAN WE PLEASE JUST TAKE A MOMENT TO ACKNOWLEDGE LUCA. ( I hope all of you have already followed his Instagram page – as mentioned in my introduction. )

 

 

 

After briefly researching Chelsea and Luca, I noticed that he has so much confidence ( He rates he’s just as beautiful as his owner, so why cant he look majestic in her photos, right? ) – I mean look at the pictures below – what a pro photo-bomber.

  I mean props to Chelsea for helping him create his very own Instagram page! YOU GO GIRL!
