Balancing the Water Element

74 mins

Balance the water element of the body in this nourishing class with Annie Jones. Enjoy a thoroughly nurturing EBR 1, then discover the peace created in the ‘Rising Lotus’ sequence as you balance the cerebro-spinal fluids, with chakra and energy awareness.

Experience the Moon Sequence (Chandra Namaskara) with a powerful water visualisation. Then deeply let go in the new ‘water relaxation’, a soft, moving relaxation with chakra awareness. Slow down, become at ease with yourself, clear the mind and cleanse the body.

Yoga class contents


Activate your body and create free-flow within your spine with relaxing spinal twists, side-scoops, graceful figure-8 movements and sweeping calf-stretches.

Energy Block Release 1

Nurture your body top-to-toe with EBR1 and put a sparkle in your step.

Rising lotus

This sequence of movements incorporates prompts your spine to move segmentally, one vertebra at time. The result? A clear channel for smooth-flowing cerebro-spinal fluid, and a happy, healthy body.

Moon salutation

Feel the rejuvenating, cooling power of the moon salutation, a calming series of movements combined with breath, that help balance the swadhisthana chakra, or water centre. Harmony in this centre allows you to bring harmony into your relationships, and brings a greater sense of wellbeing with you and your world. This sequence is perfect for cooling feelings of irritation in your life.

Thanks Annie I went with the flow this am, choose the above sequence, just perfect. I am developing from my 7 day chakra challenge dipping in and out of the online Dru Studio seeking sequences that balance my various energy centres. I particularly loved this sequence as I have had two Spinal surgeries. I felt I was honouring my cerebro-spinal fluids, all my Spinal nerves who have repaired and over time rehabilated. Om Shanti Om.

Thank you Annie. A calming and relaxing experience. I loved the visualisation of the waterfall over my crown and down my spine in the moon sequence.

Hey Liz - agreed! This class is amazing at full moon - also fab if you're ever feeling unsettled or off balance emotionally as it really helps to balance the swadistana chakra and therefore our emotions too

Hi Olivia, thanks for bringing this to our attention. For all our new classes we have reduced the volume of the music at the end - we are gradually also going back over previous videos to re-edit. Thanks again, Anouschka.

I love the online classes, but A general comment, the music at the end is so disturbing the moment... Loud, noisy, disturbing my peace ..and my practice. Maybe it is me, but I feel the need to give this feed back.

I love the rising lotus as calming as this sequence is it creates a very deep contraction in my core muscles. Thanks for a brilliantly deceptive workout.
