MANIPURA CHAKRA My fire is my power

Hi, I’m Charlotte (Yogi Cha). I’m a yoga teacher with a degree in clinical psychology. When not teaching, I enjoy learning and writing (my blog) about both eastern and western approaches to body-mind union.

I allow myself to rise

The fire within me burns through all blocks of fear

I honor the power within me

The shala was so full today that I got worried it would burst into flames with all those sparkles in this morning’s MANIPURA CHAKRA FLOW 

We have so much force lingering inside, but are too conditioned in our behavioral patterns to actually use it properly. 
We are used to thinking that we are not good enough, strong enough or capable so we often lose the motivation to follow through. 
If you could only see the power you hold, the brightly burning flame waiting to be fed so that you can bloom and succeed 
You can see it in the eyes of another; you can see how they are shining like the sun.

You see it in their sparkling eyes. There is no shame, there is only strength. There is no need to be right, you EXIST and you are powerful anyway.
This morning my students put their trust in each other’s hands and stepped away from old feelings of shame and lack of autonomy. There was no judgment, no expectations, no need to compete. Because they knew that their power can be used wiser. 

Action brings reaction 

Fear feeds fear 

Love brings love


That is the strongest power you can use.

I release my old blockages and allow myself to rise. I will shine like the sun.
