Chakra Yoga Workshop Class -- 7 Week Series -- Starts Jan. 8th!

Beginning on Sunday, Jan. 8th from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm, I will be holding my first Chakra Yoga Workshop Class. Here's what it is all about:

Just as we have a physical body, we also have a body of energy, called a subtle body. And just as we have a physical spine that acts as the central channel through which nerve impulses flow, we also have a subtle central channel called sushumna through which prana, or life force, flows. Deep within the sushumna lie spinning centers of energy, called chakras, which are like intense vortices of energy that act as distribution points for prana.

Chakra is a Sanskrit word that means “wheel” or “disc.” A chakra is formed where there is a massive confluence of nadis (lines of energy) in the body. Prana (vital life force) is distributed throughout the body via these lines of energy. Therefore, the chakras can be understood as subtle centers of transformation of energy. They do not belong to the material body and cannot be perceived on the physical level.

However, they do affect the physical body — each chakra energizes, controls, and influences a different region of the body. There are seven major chakras arranged along the midline of the body within the spinal column, from the base of the spine to the crown of the head.

Blocked energy in our 7 chakras can often lead to illness or distress on systems of the body. As such, it is important to understand what each chakra represents and what we can do to keep this energy flowing freely. Chakra balancing creates a sense of equilibrium between your body, mind and spirit. When your chakras are returned to their natural frequencies, inner peace, wellbeing, and joy will follow.

In this workshop, we will explore the deep relationship between yoga asanas (or postures) and the chakras. When the asanas are combined with breath, visualization and mantra, they can have a direct effect on the energy flow within the chakras.

The workshop classes will be divided into 3 parts: 15 minutes of lecture about one chakra, followed by a 60-minute Vinyasa practice designed to awaken the spinal energies and balance the chakras and 15 minute Crystal Bowl Meditation


Rates: $210 per person for the complete 7-week series, or $35 per 120 min. class session

Restorative Flow Yoga and Singing Bowl Meditation
The perfect balance for whatever else you do in life, this class will have you feeling amazing when you're done. This is not a workout, but rather 75 minutes of holding supported poses for several minutes each, taking your body to new depths. Wear warmer clothing than you would for any flow class and come prepared to be refreshed and relaxed. At lease one restorative class per week is recommended for anyone - whether you are highly active the "rest of your life" or not, your body deserves the gift of this class.

Rate: $25 per person, per 90 min class session


Yin Yoga and Singing Bowl Meditation
Yin Yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with postures that are held for long periods of time - five minutes or longer per pose is typical. These poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. Yin Yoga poses are also designed to flow of Qi, the subtle energy said in Chinese medicine to run through the meridian pathways of the body. Improved flow of Qi is said to improve organ health, immunity, and emotional well being.

Guided Coloring Meditation
The Guided Coloring Meditation combines a study of the seven (7) Chakras of your body with the process of opening each of them up to remove any blocks you may be experiencing. Each Chakra is represented by a specific color. Starting from the bottom up they are: Root (red), Sacral (orange), Solar Plexus (yellow), Heart (green), Throat (lt. blue), Third Eye (indigo), and Crown (purple). As we move from one to another you are asked to take that color of colored pencil and color the intricate picture you choose at the beginning of the meditation. The act of coloring is very therapeutic because it allows you to forget about everything that may be going on in your life and narrow your focus only on coloring.

Rate: $35 per person, per class session


Guided Meditation
The Guided Meditation takes your mind, body and spirit through a progressive relaxation routine which leaves you feeling rejuvenated and recharged when you're finished. While setting you for the meditation we provide blankets, yoga mats, bolsters, pillows, eye pillows, to make you are as comfortable as you can possibly be. During the meditation, we combine progressive relaxation techniques along with Reiki and essential oils to give you the best meditation session you've ever had.

Rate: $35 per person, per class session


Singing Bowl Meditation
Singing Bowls are a type of bell, specially classified as a standing bell. Rather than hanging inverted or attached to a handle, singing bowls sit with their bottom surfaces resting. The rim of singing bowls vibrates to produce sound characterized by a fundamental frequency (first harmonic) and usually two audible harmonic overtones. Singing bowls are used worldwide for meditation, music, relaxation, and personal well-being. They were historically made throughout Asia, especially Nepal, China and Japan. They are closely related to decorative bells made along the silk road from the Near East to Western Asia. Today they are made in Nepal, India, Japan, China and Korea.

Rate: $20 per person, per class session


Yoga Nidra class
Yoga Nidra—known as yogic sleep—is a meditation and conscious relaxation practice that is intended to induce total physical, mental, and emotional relaxation. Aside from being relaxing, restorative and restful, studies have shown that Yoga Nidra can also:

· Ease insomnia
· Decrease anxiety
· Alleviate stress
· Reduce PTSD, chronic pain and chemical dependency
· Heighten awareness and focus
· Transform negative habits, behaviors and ways of thinking
· Foster feelings of peace, calm, and clarity

In many ways, yoga nidra is similar to meditation. Here's how it is practiced:

· Physical Position:
Yoga Nidra is generally practiced lying down so you can let go completely. Props, pillows and blankets are commonly used, as well as anything that will help you get into a totally comfortable, restful position.

· Attention:
A typical Yoga Nidra practice is highly guided, and takes your attention to specific places through a series of steps. In many ways, the specific instructions make it easier to relax than in meditation.

· State of Consciousness:
During Yoga Nidra, you move into the state of conscious deep sleep. You are no longer in the waking state of consciousness, but you also move past the dreaming state of consciousness and into the deep sleep state. However, your mind is actually awake, so it’s often described as the state between being asleep and awake. This is why it is said that Yoga Nidra is so restorative for the body. In both practices, the mind is conscious; in Yoga Nidra but the body is in a more restful state.
