Navel Radiation Workshop 3/3

The final class of the navel radiation series. Click the link to watch the full class on youtube

For this final class, we tap into more movement sequences (expansion, contraction, spiral movements) to help guide us towards a deeper sensing of our navel space. The navel space, which as mentioned in the previous 2 classes, lies at the centre of intrinsic and extrinsic movement. We also explore how this navel centre, on a macro level, can be extended to the idea of a bigger source – the earth’s centre. The class ends with exploratory movement and a short restorative exercise.
When we are able to move in an embodied manner from our navel centre, we will find greater grounding, ease, connectedness and a sense of being.

Props required:

  • 1 yoga mat
  • 1 pair of socks
  • 1 weighted ball (or water bottle)
  • 1 cushion (or bolster)
  • 1 blanket
