Chakra Yoga Exploration Series
Chakras are the pillars of energy and vital centers which transmit the life force to various parts of the body through nadis. Just like we always want to maintain proper, functional and clear arteries so our blood can flows to all organs through them without any obstruction, we want our subtle body channels or the chakras to be clear and unblocked to allow our vital life force to flow through them without any imposition.
There are 7 main chakras that run along the central channel of the body, from the base of the spine to the crown of the head. The chakras are vital energy centers in the subtle body and are often described as a roadmap to yourself. This exploration can be a way to connect with your inner body and perhaps get to know and understand yourself better.
We will journey through these major chakras, focusing on one each week. Each session will include a description of the components of the chakra, a yoga practice that includes postures corresponding to that specific chakra, as well as a related meditation and final relaxation. The last session includes an asana flow incorporating postures for each chakra. Suitable for all levels.
This workshop will be held in the Lotus Room beginning October 1, 2018. Class will be held from 9:30 - 10:45 on 10/1, 10/8, 10/15, 10/22, 10/29, 11/12 & the final class on 11/19.
Each class will include a description of the chakra, a posture flow, meditation, and final relaxation.
