Yoga and the Chakras - New!

The chakra system originated in India between 1500 and 500 BC. The seven chakras are the main energy centers of the body. This yoga practice will bring awareness to unblocking these chakras, which refers to the idea that when all of our chakras are open, energy can run through them freely, and harmony exists between the physical body, mind, and our life in general.

The course will give you both a relaxing and uplifting yoga session and also inform and educate you on this colourful and mystical technology. Each session throughout the series is a basic yoga class with emphasis on the Chakras. The class is structured so it's suitable for both beginners and experienced. A priority is that the yoga is enjoyable, easy to follow, and also allows a more experienced student to take options to build into a pose.

We start a class with a grounding, breathwork, and a warm-up, we then take the class into a series of peak postures that will cover most positions, standing, balance, kneeling, sitting, and on your back. Inversions are kept to a few simple and easy postures. We bring attention to the chakra for each posture. The class is completed with breathwork and relaxation.
