Are you fascinated by the chakras but do not seem able to connect to them other than in the abstract?
"Creative Chakra Connections", run by Sue Staziker and Cathie Shuster brings a whole new level of understanding to the system. With its fusion of yoga, sounding, meditation, art and pair work, it subtly and gently brings us into awareness of each level, both within the body but also the heart space.
As a teacher I have found the days personally transforming and also a wonderful resource for my own classes. As they have been held at monthly intervals, there has been time to focus and work on each chakra independently before moving on to the next one.
Sue and Cathie, who are both Satvik Yoga practitioners, are experienced and sensitive in their approach. The course is beautifully prepared and allows everybody space to develop their own relationship to the chakras.

“Sometimes it's important to work for that pot of gold. But other times it's essential to take time off and to make sure that your most important decision in the day simply consists of choosing which color to slide down on the rainbow.” Douglas Pagels
Swadisthana chakra. (Sacral Chakra) is connected to the element of water. This chakra is about moving into our ability to grow and go with the flow of life. It is located in the lower abdomen, the genitals and the womb and also affects the kidneys, the bladder and the circulatory system. This Chakra is about experiencing change. . . . . . . . If you feel ‘stuck’ in any part of your life then this is the chakra for you. ‘You are alive, nothing within you is truly still’ . . . . . ‘your heart beats, your blood pulsates, a river of life connects each and every cell within you’. . . . ‘Every sound, every ray of light, every breath is an oscillation within you’ . . . . ‘A flow of constant change’ . . . . .
Ajna Chakra (The Brow) is where we connect with our true self at a deeper level to create more balance and harmony in our lives. The brow chakra is associated with the pineal gland which is known to be light sensitive. The amount of light we absorb can affect our hormonal balance. The mental plane is where we give birth to ideas before they become clothed with language or form. By elevating our energies through the lower chakras to the Brow or Spiritual Eye we can be inspired by our inner light, vision and understanding. This gives us concentration, focus and insight to be able to take command of our lives physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
