Rebalancing The Chakras with Little Health Bunny, Kingdom, Sun 7 Oct

Kiri aka The Little Health Bunny will be hosting a Yoga Class (suitable for all abilites) at Kingdom in Penshurst concentrating on rebalancing the chakras, the perfect way to enter this new season. Kiri explain, the seven chakras correlate to different physical mental and emotional attributes so when chakras are unbalanced it is shown through fear, anxiety, instability or physical illness. So if you’re feeling a blockage somewhere in your life; love, ambition, focus, the workshop will be a chance to tap into that and find some space and clarity – sounds like just what we need!
