Chakra Vinyasa weekend

Standard

Hello beautiful Bloggies,

This past weekend officially blown my mind. I spend 3 days surrounded with other yogis listening, practicing and learning about Chakra Vinyasa during Maria Garre’s Teacher Training. I missed days like that a lot. I knew a few people at the training already so I wasn’t completely alone.

To be honest I have no idea how am I going to digest all this knowledge now so I am just gonna sit on this and wait. Chakra Vinyasa is one of many modules of Prana Flow TT founded by Shiva Rea.

It’s a pretty complicated process although everything does beautifully comes together in the end and practicing it feels amazing. I won’t get into deep details but just to give you some idea.

Prana Flow philosophy is all about “the universal force” that’s behind every action, movement that we see and feel in the nature and within our bodies. Every breath that we take, every thought we have, every heartbeat we feel is caused by this “all knowing intelligent life force Prana”,

When Prana comes into play there is an energy rising and moving within our bodies. This philosophy is based on Chakra System (Muladhara, Svadhisthana, Manipura, Anahata, Vishuddha, Ajna, Sahasrara Chakra and 5 elements (Earth, Water, Fire, Air, Space); it teaches us how to experience vinyasa. Our breath is a vehicle to Prana so we can embody consciousness and “flow of life”.

I know that it may sound abstractive to you so I will stop here but believe me if you are a yoga practitioner try it out and you will be hooked.

Very inspiring women.

We went through a pretty intensive training with yoga practices and in between there was meditation. And as much as I love this practice I was truly amazed that I actually loved the meditation part as well. Someone forced me to meditate 4 times in 2 days…loved it. And now I miss it…so I think one of my New Year’s resolutions will be bringing more meditation to my life.

Man, this week goes fast – I seriously had to study so maybe that’s why. I am going to a Prana Flow training this weekend. Now I am going through materials that are recommended. At least I am trying to 😉 The training is going to be in one of Mississauga’s yoga studios. One of Senior Teacher and Director of Shiva Rea’s Samudra School of Living Yoga is coming and I am pretty excited about what happens there. I won’t go into details what it’s about. I’ll share with you after. It’s going to be an intense 3 days so I am already concerned how to stock myself with on the go food. I am thinking that snacks are not enough since its from 7am-7 pm. That’s correct-7 am!!!

Back to the topic, Tom is pretty open recently to vegan cousin and some dishes he really likes . But still he is a meat eater. In general I don’t have issue with preparing traditional meals for him but liver.…Is one of those things that really disgusts me. Probably most of you will think “why would you have this for dinner”. Well it’s all a part of Polish cuisine when you simply fry the liver (any kind) with onion. And I remember the times when my mom used to make it and I ate it then…but ever since I tried to prepare it on my own I just got grossed out. It’s all bloody and slimy before it looks like meal.

I am not even mentioning the fact I almost don’t eat meat anymore…

I was doing my shopping on Monday evening and since I am a good wife – I remembered that a while ago he asked me to make it. Bleh…I just clenched my teeth today. I didn’t take any pictures of this bloody meal – to graphic for the blog;) but you can call it -an experience.

And what can you do for your meat eater?

Have an awesome rest of the week,

Izabela
