Awaken Energy 1: Blocks, Rollers and Massage
Learn techniques to move energy in the body. You will need 1-2 tennis balls or spiky massage ball, a block and a foam roller. You'll learn how to move energy (or chi, in Chinese medicine) along meridian lines.

Tune In Tune Up: The Crown Centre
This yoga class is all about connection with the divine! The crown chakra is where our ego dissolves and we connect with the source. Headstand is the posture for this class. If you don't have a regular headstand practice, then just place your head on the ground in your child's pose and you'll feel the same benefits.
Tune In Tune Up: The Third Eye
Tune In Tune Up: The Throat Centre
This yoga class uses two poses which relate to our relationship with our self and communication. Often, we have obstacles of cynicism and mistrust in the way of developing a harmonious relationship with ourselves. Today's asana are shoulderstand and the plough, for those who practice these postures often. Otherwise, simply use the sound of the mantra.
