Sarah-Joy Amin runs Chakra Yoga classes in Pulau Tikus and the Botanic Gardens. What is Chakra Yoga and how can it help you? 

Chakra Yoga is based on the hatha yoga tradition whilst embracing the chakra system that works with the physical, mental, emotional and energetic bodies. Chakras are the wheel-like energy centres of these subtle bodies, like batteries that charge up your energy system.

Chakra Yoga takes a holistic approach. You will exercise your physical body, engage in deep breathing to ensure good flow of oxygen and prana into your body and cells for better health, as well as be sensitive to your chakras to heal, balance and strengthen your outer and inner selves.


The classes combine hatha yoga postures with simple meditation and/or relaxation techniques. Beginner classes will focus more on feeling comfortable with the poses, developing flexibility and strength gradually, and on relaxation, while Intermediate classes will enjoy more flow moving from one pose to another, holding poses for strength, balance, focus and greater flexibility. Modified postures will be shown for those without a yoga background or have physical injuries.
