Balancing the chakras - Ajna (third eye centre)

 - 
Duration: 
5 mins

Welcome to this session with Annie, based on the Ajna Chakra.

This is the sixth session of a seven part series created by Annie and the Dru Team, aimed at revealing a few of the secrets of the seven energy centres that exist within all of us.
In today's session, Annie will utilise the Sphynx posture as an aid to stimulating and awakening the energy of the  'third eye' along with a mudra known as the Sambhavi mudra.


Note: Although the word 'mudra' usually indicates a hand gesture,  in this case, it denotes a gesture of the eyes.


Visualisation
The aim of this session - based on creating a focus in the forehead, is to draw our awareness to our state of mind. Annie invites you visualise a waterfall cascading down your body from the mind, cleansing and purifying you thoughts.

Today's class is dedicated to creating a calm, clear mind, clearing away stuck thoughts that are clouding your goals and dreams, and making space for new, bright thoughts to re-invigorate your way forward.
Annie completes this class with a relaxing moment in the Child pose.
