Continuing on in our zodiac series, here’s our Scorpio yoga practice. This will be a yin yoga class that helps us connect with the third eye ajna chakra and the sacral svadhistana chakra. Scorpio is associated with themes of shadow work, magic, intuition, intimacy, sexuality, death, rebirth and depth. Scoprio is a fixed water sign that relates to the deep waters of the self.
Scorpio is associated with the archetype of the King or Queen of Death due to its ability to let things go and to transform. This will be a practice to facilitate shadow work and to help you turn in to yourself and listen. Turn towards those parts of yourself that you repress, suppress or deny. Explore the depths of your psyche and welcome the energy of Scorpio into your practice.
This 30 minute yin yoga practice is suitable for all levels and will use 2 blocks. We will focus on poses that open up our hips and connect to the space of the third eye. We will be in each pose for 3-4 minutes so remember not to push yourself too far. We are not chasing sensation, we want to be able to relax deeply.
Affirmations for Scorpio:
– I feel deeply

Whether you believe in astrology or not, you are welcome here! It can be fun to fuse our practice with meaning and symbolism through different lenses and perspectives. These themes allow us to connect with different parts of ourselves and can help us grow. Don’t take yourself too seriously and just have fun with it!
