January News & Specials
We thank you for your continued support and loyalty. We are so grateful for the beautiful community that continues to grow at Laya.
Laya in Sanskrit means; Home, a place of rest and the a space where the Ego death is possible. Where we release all that we think is and fully dive into ourselves, letting go of illusions and allowing ourselves to just BE.
I imagined a space where we could grow a community, hold space for each other and flourish in wellness together. This dream has definitely come into fruition, in-house and as extension outside our doors into our neighbours and city. I want to express my gratitude to everyone who arrives at our door ready to receive self care and healing.
When you show up for yourself and your wellness, you ground your nervous system and quiet the subtle energies of your body. This form of healing is potent and extends beyond your physical body - it weaves itself into your family, your community and into the world.
Bravo to you, for acknowledging your needs and for stepping into self compassion.
CHANNELING ROOT CHAKRA WELLNESS
The month of January brings the most amazing opportunity to channel in Earth energy. Just as the elements in nature display themselves to us, we are a microcosm of all that surrounds us. Nature and our environment is our biggest teacher - so what happens in the winter?
Everything dies off, all of the animals retreat into hibernation, our plants move into their roots for survival and within us, we crave cozy and comfort.
The Root Chakra is connected to Earth, our family, our security, survival. Our "Right to be here". It is tied to the emotion of fear, and who here does not carry fear? I think we all do at some capacity.
It's location is at the Coccyx (Base of the spine) and it is associated with the colour red
While working through the Chakras can be a life long process, here are some ways that you can start to tune into these energetic centres in your body and awaken your life force energy!
Reconnect to the body
Bring in physical activity
Touch therapy - Massage
Ground - feet on earth, lie on the ground
Develop a yoga practice
Heal your relationships
Reclaim your right to be here
Herbs for the Root Chakra:
May winter offer us retreat and hibernation, reminding us to move slow, to simplify, to rest and restore our energy reserves.
There is not better way to feel embodied than movement!
Every Monday at Laya we offer you an opportunity to explore this for yourself.
