|About Anahata Chakra
||Literally means ‘unstruck’ – because the sounds created here are not of a physical vibration / friction, its an unstruck sound of the soul. Anahata is the seat of emotions, is the chakra where Shiva and Shakti reside and unite. Realization of anahata results in expression of greater creativity, care, compassion and sensitivity in an individual, also overcoming the limitations (such as greed) of the lower chakras. It is also important to be aware that an unbalanced Anahata chakra leads to jealousy, attachment and extreme uncontrollable emotions and pain.
||“Yoga is about balance and respect for nature. The foremost being our love and respect towards “”Gaia – Mother Earth””. Green from the heart is about being aware of our interconnectedness with nature and the unintended damage we cause nature in our daily lives. We at ‘a1000yoga’ are committed to being more aware, reduce the damage caused and show our gratitude to nature. Our commitment begins with operating as a green business through various initiatives:
- Use energy efficient lighting
- Use earth-friendly yoga mats and props
- Bamboo flooring, eco friendly timber
- Print schedules, announcements and forms on recycled/handmade paper
- In bathrooms, use organic soaps, recycled toilet paper, cloth hand towels
- Use of reusable mugs/glasses in the pantry
- Place indoor plants that refresh air

- Use eco friendly toys in the play area
- Reduce waste by recycling and reusing as much as possible
