Deepen your practice and connection to your authentic self in this workshop series designed to explore the subtle and powerful connections between your mind, body and spirit.
According to yogic tradition, chakras are internal energy centers where emotion and thought connect with the physical body. This interaction affects your health, posture, behavior and interactions with others. When the flow of energy is open and balanced you feel invigorated, peaceful and at ease in the world and within yourself.
When that flow is blocked, physical, mental, or emotional imbalances will manifest. This may include anxiety, poor digestion, physical weakness, disconnection and depression.
By moving these blockages and balancing your energetic centers, you will deepen your understanding of yourself and the subtle mind-body connection, creating opportunities for growth, healing and transformation.
Each workshop will focus on specific chakras, physical and emotional symptoms of blockage and how to bring balance and healing to them through movement, breath and visualization as well as additional tools including music, essential oils, color and gemstones. Sign up for one or all three and save!
Included with each workshop is a goody bag of information and tools to further support your exploration of the chakras at home. Bring your notebook and pen.
The third and fourth chakras are our physical and energetic centers. They are the home of our feelings of self-worth, personal power and ability to create the life we want to live, as well as love and intimacy.
Self-doubt, beliefs of who and what we “should be” (rather than who we really are) or an inability or reluctance to express and let go of emotions, shuts these areas down. Physically this can lead to pain and dysfunction in the hands, arms and shoulders, allergies, and cardiac, respiratory and digestive issues. Emotionally, we can feel anxious, critical, not “good enough”, unlovable and alone which can lead to a life filled with busy-ness yet lacking a connection to your inner self. In this 2-hour workshop, we’ll explore some of the reasons these chakras become blocked and tools for bringing physical and emotional balance to them.
Our yoga practice will include breath work (pranayama) and asana, focusing on chest openers, back bends and creating strength and ease in the shoulders to turn on your inner healing fires. Appropriate for all levels.
