About this course
Welcome to Maternity Charkas Teacher's Pathway:
The journey through the chakras is the Maternity journey of discovery and healingalong the rainbow bridge — the metaphysical bridge that connects consciousness with matter; instinct with spirit. This journey has been travelled many times by yoginis but rarely in pregnancy.
And yet pregnancy is the journey from mystery to manifestation and from instinct to transcendence. Pregnancy is transformational whether you like it or not. When consciousness is brought to the process, the transformation can be healing, empowering, integrated and stabilised. As the body expands and opens so does the heart, themind and awareness. Perceiving pregnancy and birth through the lens of the chakras enables deep insight into the multidimensional aspects of the experience and of the potential of yoga practice too.
