Chakra

Are you interested in understanding how the practice of yoga, pranayama and meditation work together to transform the energetic body?

In this 7-week series, we will explore the chakras. The human chakra system consists of 7 primary chakras that stretch from the base of the spine to the crown of the head. In Sanskrit, the word chakra translates to “wheel” and references our energetic body. Each week, we will explore a new chakra and focus on how it uniquely regulates a physical, spiritual and emotional function of the body.

Through movement, sound and smell, we will journey through the chakras and explore how we can improve our connection to the subtle body through:

Shapes (asana)
Breath (pranayama)
Mantras
Colors
Elements
Aromatherapy
Music

In this 7-week series (with each session lasting 2 hours), yogis will:
– Learn about the energetic body and chakra system by focusing on one chakra per week
– Practice one hour of asana, focusing on the chakra of the week
– Practice a 10-minute chakra meditation, focusing on the chakra of the week

Students will leave each session with a custom, essential-oil blend and a crystal to balance each energy center.

All 7 Sessions – $250
Drop-in Session: $40 each
