Working with the Chakras June 9th
Join us in this seminar to see how you can use asana, pranayama, breathing practices and awareness to strengthen the flow of energy through the chakras and reclaim the natural support system that they are for the body, mind and heart. We start with the understanding of how and where the chakras are formed by the nadis, the energy channels, and then see how they can weaken over time through dissipation of the flow or blocking the flow completely. Then we use ourpractice of asana, breath and awareness specifically to strengthen the channels and release thedams that we’ve built through habits and misunderstandings. We reclaim the flow of energy that supports us, that helps us live spiritually in this world. At the end of the session, we step back into our lives with a greater degree of compassion, more intelligent support that comes from the inside,and more resilience to offer the world.
The Three Main Chakras in depth June 10th
Of the six major chakras located along the subtle spinal axis, the three main ones are manipura (3) ,anahata (4) and ajna (6). They govern the other chakras in very sublime and profound ways. The Manipura Chakra at the navel area is the gateway to the lower two chakras and known to give health and radiance to the body. The Anahata Chakra, at the heart area, is the seat of Pure
Consciousness and the source of our innate joy and freedom. The Ajna Chakra in the area of the mind is the Command Center, shining its light on the Vishuddha chakra and governing all six major chakras located within the body. By understanding these particularly powerful centers and their currents, you reach deeper into the well of yoga, enriching the practice you now have in an insightful and meaningful way. We will use asana, pranayama and meditation to access and activate these areas.
