Chakra Vinyasa Flow With Matthew Kemp

Inspired by Yogananda’s book “Autobiography of a Yogi” , Matthew moved to India, living in an ashram for 7 years. As yoga became his way of life, he studied many style of yoga asana, including Sivananda style and Asthanga Yoga in Mysore. Kriya yoga meditation became a constant discipline in his life. After studying with many yoga master and developing deeper understanding on yoga, he was urged by his Guru Sri Shankaranan Giri to start teaching yoga.

Matthew has been teaching in Malaysia, England and India for the last 6 years. He still make regular trips to India to build on his knowledge and seek new ways to share what he has learnt to others. His teaching style is a mix of dynamic , strengthening and releasing posture, using the breath to deepen awareness of posture and personal space.

Chakra Vinyasa Flow, is a meditative, yet dynamic, form of yoga using the breath and dristi whilst flowing from pose to pose. Through the vinyasa flow sequence, we will explore the 7 major chakra which will bring the awareness into the individual's chakra system.

Dristi or point of concentration helps us to stay focus and calm the mind during our practice in chakra vinyasa flow. We will be using dristi to focus on the 7 energy centers, which will helps raise our energy levels and deepening our experience during our practice. Although all yoga pose work each of the 7 chakra, there are specific poses that will address each chakra. We will work each chakra at a time connecting the chakras to work with each other and also to open up the energy channels for optimal flow.

Thanks to the base & spotter that given us the confidence to fly. These are applicable to our daily routine. In a work place, a home. You need a base to be grounded just like your family members that run the daily house work & basic need. You need a motivator a supporter to drive your engine.
