This way to the Online Yoga Session

The project Tools for Conviviality by our C/O Berlin Talent Award 2020 winner Anna Ehrenstein was developed during the artist’s research project in Dakar, which involved local creatives as co-producers. Nyamwathi Gichau is one of them. We have invited the Yoga teacher to host a digital yoga session between Dakar and Berlin. 

This Hatha/Vinyasa/Yin Yoga sequence is designed to release any outdated energy from your heart (Anahata) chakra (energy center). We will enjoy a holistic session featuring a variety of asanas from deep twists, backbends and shoulder opening folds, to Pranayama, Yoga Nidra and a guided meditation. Together, we will restore the flow of energy through this vital center. 

This chakra is associated with balance, calmness, and serenity. When it is balanced and healthy, you will find ‘following one’s heart’ becomes second nature, as well as giving and receiving and attracting genuine love.
