“I loved everything about the Footsteps chakra yoga course . . . especially the journey that I went on over the seven weeks – each week so different to the one before. I really enjoyed”…READ MORE


This is a unique and inspiring Footsteps yoga course – in which each week we will explore and work with each of your body’s seven chakras. This yoga course is perfect for those who want to learn more about themselves, their seven powerful energy centres and to connect with the areas within themselves that are in need of healing and re-balance.

I encourage you to read some of the testimonials woven into this page to get a sense of how this yoga chakra journey may impact you. NB: when you click through on the READ MORE in the testimonials, please then scroll down a little to reach the YOGA CHAKRA section. 

You may or may not know that you have seven main energy centres in your body called chakras. Think of these as energy centres in your body, soul, and mind.

Chakras function as transformers, taking the energy from the environment and your own thoughts and emotions, and then move it into and around your body.

Each week the yoga class sequence will focus on a different chakra.  Over the 7 weeks we will journey from your root chakra, all the way up to your crown chakra.

We will be feeling into each of our seven chakras and releasing stuck prana (energy) that may be holding us back in life. You will learn specific yoga postures that can release stale or stuck prana from these different energy centres within the body, as well as allowing you to invite fresh, vital energy back in through specific poses and breath techniques.


Each week the two hour workshop will include:

  • Exploration into the location, purpose, meaning of each energy centre
  • How this chakra can help or hinder your current life situation and well being
  • You will learn yoga poses and experience a nurturing yoga sequence flow to work with this energy centre
  • We will be feeling into your energetic world and tap into the power of your energy centres
  • You will also experience ancient and beautiful mudras, mantras, pranayama and meditation techniques, specific to each chakra
  • Aromatherapy oils will be selected for each chakra session to deepen and enhance your experience each session
  • Each week you will be given home play and we will stay in contact over the 7 weeks via an online group
