I haven't done this class for many months now as my experience when I first tried this class was that I was getting irritable and exhausted from the long holds. I thought to myself that there was something I needed to learn.... Now months and a lot of strong classes by Fiji and daily meditations later I found myself enjoying this class as I felt my body grounded, strong and free. Thank you Fiji, for being right here with your movement and words of wisdom and liberation whenever I need them :-)

Moving- on many levels!

What an experience this class gave me this morning. Working with Manipura chakra is exactly what I need to do right now and this class served me in all aspects. Extremely challenging, but weirdly comforting for that- the power lies within! My strength, my abilities, my sense of worth- all are in my control and as long as I choose to, I can grow and develop them myself. Thank you, Fiji, for being my guide. The closing was perfect and I know that I will return to this often. Thank you xx

Tough one

Amazing lesson, there were many things I couldn't do and I realised I should only do your classes once a week, as they are a bit beyond my ability, and do others in the interim. I learnt a lot though from your instructions and love your style of lesson and instruction and I loved the mudra at the end. Thank you.

The hardest thus far...

which probably means that this is the Chakra that is the most out of balance. Am I right? Fought through some of the poses - will revisit this program in a few weeks to see how I progress. Thanks for the challenge!

Chakra 3
Fiji McAlpine 2 months ago

Hi Jenny,

This practice itself is definately challenging simply from a physical perspective, there may also be resistance due to work that is needed in this rung of the chakra ladder. The third chakra is functioning well when we feel we have a healthy sense of self-determination, and that we are intouch with take action in our own life. It can of course become over or underactive which would lead to being too domineering or too meak.

Thanks for the feedback. Gives me food for thought.

Timing...

Thank you, again, Fiji, I always learn something from your classes. My 3rd chakra feels soooo energized now (at this important intention setting time of the new moon). Which I realise I desperately needed. Definitely challenging intermediate....I'll reach proper titivasana in time with practice, I know.
Thankyouthankyouthankyou. :-)

wonderful class. Way above my ability in places but still got lots from what I could do.

Was a little confused by 3rd chakra being below the navel, I thought it was just above?

Great question!

This is a great question, and like you for many years I was informed that the 3rd chakra was located above the navel. This may be true! What I have come to learn in the last couple of years, in deeper study with some incredible teachers is that the chakra is located behind the naval and around 2 inches down. This is was shared first by an incredibly wise woman/teacher of Ayurveda and yoga. She has studied extensively at the Bihar yoga school in India for decades and is a fountain of knowledge. She also pointed out to me that that Kundalini yoga also sees this lower source of power.

Thank you. Interesting. I'll
