Knowledge Hero: The Chakras
As part of Yoga Hero’s Further Training Course, this Knowledge Hero: The Chakras workshop takes the time to learn about the Chakras in terms of teaching and practicing yoga. The Chakras can be an incredibly powerful tool in a yoga class; whether you actually talk about them to your students or not!, and they provide ongoing inspiration for classes, workshops and courses.
We’ll cover how to ‘explain’ chakras to others – even those who have never heard of a chakra before, before moving on to the name and characteristics of each chakra, and then look at how this knowledge and understanding can feed in to your yoga classes. We’ll also have time to share any experiences that the group have had with chakras to add to your body of knowledge and understanding.
This workshop is designed to increase your confidence talking about the chakras and bringing them in to your yoga classes, and above all, to inspire you! As yoga teachers, sometimes we need an injection of inspiration, or a refresher on a topic, and this workshop will be exactly that.
Come join us!
* Starting with a grounding meditation to get in the learning zone

Holly Mcfee is the owner of Yoga Hero Ltd. Holly has been practicing yoga for seven years, and teaching for five years. Holly embarked upon her 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training here in Leeds, and after balancing a full time job and teaching yoga for just six months, went full time in to teaching.
In August 2015 Holly opened the Yoga Hero studio in Leeds Dock, and in June 2017 this studio expanded to become one of the largest dedicated yoga spaces in the North of England.
Holly, along with Angela Jervis-Read, leads Yoga Hero’s 200 hour Vinyasa Flow Teacher Training Course. Her interest in anatomy borders on the ridiculous, and she is really passionate about yoga instructors having at least a basic understanding of how bodies move, and how joints work, to ensure a safe environment for yoga students. These workshops provide a safe space to recap on the basics and deepen anatomical knowledge, to make your yoga teaching, and your yoga practice incredibly effective, as well as safe and enjoyable.
About Yoga Hero
Yoga Hero has been established since March 2013. Initially, classes were ‘popping up’ in church halls, arts galleries, cafes, skateparks… you name it! Over time, we eventually found a beautiful home in Leeds Dock.
Yoga Hero has three studios, one with a capacity of up to 80, one with a capacity of 20, and the third is perfect for small private groups or one to one sessions. At Yoga Hero, we offer everything from Introduction to Yoga Courses, Pay As You Feel Classes, up to 200 hour Foundation Teacher Training Qualifications and Further Training, such as Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, and much more!
About Leeds Dock
Yoga Hero is based in a beautiful part of Leeds called Leeds Dock. Leeds Dock is a 10 minute walk from Leeds Train Station, or there’s a free water taxi servicebetween the train station and the Dock!
There are also many very reasonably priced AirBnBs on the Dock
Leeds is a quite small city with loads going on. The whole city is walkable by foot, probably 40 minutes’ walk from one end to the other at a steady pace. There’s many independent restaurants and cafes, with our favourite North Star Coffee Shopjust two doors down from the studio, serving incredible coffee and food during the day.
