According to the ancient yogic system that describes the movement of life force, there are 7 energy centers in the body, known as the chakras or "wheels." These are maps for exploring the energy body or pranamaya kosha. From crown to root, the chakras describe the cosmic journey of spirit materializing; and, in the other direction, like the angels on Jacob's Ladder, they chart the journey back from matter to spirit.

When the natural human instincts for survival, sensation and power (the lower chakras) are in balance--neither restrained nor excessive--then the heart center opens with compassion and detachment leading to the development of authenticity, wisdom and spiritual evolution.

Learning the psychosomatic, psychoenergetic, and psychospiritual characteristics of each energy center can help us recognize and release karmic blocks and habitual patterns, healing and inspiring us to create our lives with infinite potential.

Claudia Saucy aka "Karuna Pragya" 500-CYT, began practicing yoga and meditation at age 18, and later in life completed her 500-hour certification under Don and Amba Stapleton, renown teachers in the Kripalu tradition. She studied Ayurveda with Dr. Vasant Lad and Matthew Remski, among others, and is an Ayurveduc Lifestyle coach, a Bach Flower practitioner, and a private YogaGuide®. Holding a master’s degree in education, she moved from teaching academic subjects to children to teaching yoga in a variety of settings in Costa Rica, Canada, Italy, and the USA. Karuna brings to her Discovery Yoga classes the qualities that she is named for: karuna (compassion) and pragya (discernment). Combining breath, focus, and mindful flow, her movement explorations develop strength, and offer opportunities for relaxation and opening. Karuna's classes are an invitation to hold yourself with kindness while you explore with awareness the unique makeup of your body-mind-spirit.
