April 7th, 2019


Join us for an exploration through Asana and the Chakras. Chakra is a Sanskrit word which literally translates to spinning wheel. Chakras and our understanding of them go back to the Upanishads and the sutras. In modern times, we understand these spinning wheels as the 7 energy centers in our body. These energy centers influence all aspects of our lives, including our physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. When the chakras are in balance, we are in perfect health and are connected in positive ways to others and the world around us.


In the first half of this workshop, we will explore the roots of the chakra system and explore the evolution of our current day 7 chakra system. We will review the meanings of the chakras, including the relationship to the spine, organs, elements, seed sound, color and mental states. We will learn how to use asana as a tool to activate, balance and manage the energy body.


In the second portion we will delve a little deeper into the chakra tools and complete an introspective exercise on our current state of being. We will flow through a short vinyasa chakra tune-up and explore how to develop asana sequences for each chakra with demonstration to the class. We will conclude with a beautiful chakra balancing meditation.  


 Duration 4 hours, 4 CEC's for Yoga Teachers, $60/50 early bird by March 31 

This workshop will be held at Art of Balalnce yoga studio in Fredericksburg, VA  See www.artofbalanceyoga.com

 Join us for a two hour workshop designed to open and balance your chakras. Chakra is a Sanskrit word which literally translates to spinning wheel. These spinning wheels are the 7 energy centers in our body. These energy centers influence our physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. When they are in balance, we are in perfect health and are connected in positive ways to others and the world around us.

In this workshop, we will review the Chakras and their meanings including location, glands/organs, color, seed sound, mental states and the best oils to use. Using essential oils, affirmations and asanas (yoga poses) we will move through each chakra point in our yoga practice. You will experience a new sense of peace, energize your physical body, align your subtle energetic body and bring balance into your life.

No yoga experience required. Wear comfortable clothing. Bring a yoga mat if you have one. Some of the oils might not be suitable for first trimester pregnancy and would either be substituted or skipped.

Spring Clean Your Body Systems! Just like your closet, garage or junk drawer, your body systems also need cleaning. Like any other hard working system, it needs periodic rest and support to function optimally.

Specifically designed twists and compression asanas will rinse the spine and internal organs of harmful toxins. Journaling and affirmations will release negative thought patterns and emotions. We will review other tools and approaches for a safe detox that will leave you completely refreshed and full of energy!
