thank you and confused chakras
apomerleau 2 weeks ago

Hi Fiji,

I am loving your classes! I love your pacing and cues that help me tune into my body more deeply. I also chuckle at some new pretzel position I find myself in during your classes--and to which I laugh with my partner later about: "Fiji's not messing around!" Your classes have helped re-inspire my daily yoga practice after stepping away for a year to nurse a shoulder injury. Thank you!

For this class, I am confused by some of the references to chakra front and back attachment points. I think you attached the 2nd chakra to the tailbone, which I thought was the domain of the first. The third chakra usually is referenced as the solar plexus I think you mention that it's below the navel, which I thought was 2nd chakra? Perhaps you are using a different mapping source and if so, I am curious about that.

Thanks!

Great Question
Fiji McAlpine 2 weeks ago

I am happy to hear that you are enjoying the classes and that they are helping to heal that shoulder!!

This is a great question!! I recently studied with an incredible woman who has been studying yoga and Ayurveda at the Bihir School in India for almost 30 years. She re-taught me about the chakras! I had been opperating on the "general" knowledge of where they are, how they work, and how to work with them. What she taught me is no a more refined understanding, but will conflict slightly with what others teach. My new understanding is that Muladhara is the only chakra not housed in the spine, it dwells in the pelvic floor. This starts to make sense when you begin to study subtle body anatomy and the origniation of sushumna nadi and kundalini energy. Chakra 2 then sits near the tailbone and chakra 3 slightly below the navel centre.

That was such a wonderful

This week has been very full of beauty, power, and healing. And connections that I haven't felt in a long time. Thank you, Fiji.

Beautiful practice

Thank you so much Fiji. This was exactly what was needed for me today. My whole spine was cracking and adjusting as you led me up the chakras. I now feel very at peace within myself, feeling that beautiful connection to the universe and myself.
Namaste
