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

A high energy and challenging sequence for advanced practitioners. In this class, we will explore our edge and use both the breath and the power of the mind to go deeper. In this workshop, we will focus on opening the energy of the hips. Hips carry our emotional tension. With additional focus on the breath, we will use prana to create more spaciousness in the hips and as a result, in our emotional lives.

This workshop will focus on unlocking the energetic blocks of the shoulders.  Creative asana sequencing will emphasize the power of releasing the tension in the shoulders and neck. This area of the body holds worry and neurosis. By focusing on the breath, we will harness the power of the exhale to let go of stress and reconnect with inner vitality and power.
