Chandra Namaskara - the Moon sequence

14 mins

The Chandra Namaskara, the Moon sequence.

Your session will include the following:

  • a brief synopsis of the benefits 
  • suggestions for modifications - chair or pracitsing whilst standing - especially helpful if you find the pressure of kneeling too uncomfortable.
  • Louise guides you throigh the stages of this sequence
  • the sequence includes a number of asanas - the Warrior, the Crocodile, the Sphynx and the Extended Child.
  • visualisation - see the moon reclected on the calm waters of a lake - useful for calming the emotions.
  • use power affirmation: 'I am at peace', 'All is well'
  • this sequence is linked to the second chakra - the swadhisthana. It is also linked to the manomaya kosha.  To understand more about the koshas, see The five layers of existance in you core lecture series.
