The chakras represent the architecture of the human soul. As meeting
points between mind and body, spirit and matter, the chakras form the
yoke of yoga. As portals between the worlds, the chakras are the
seven windows to the soul that connect the inner world with the outer.
Yoga is the spiritual language that opens these
centers and brings us
to the core consciousness of the divine within. Chakras are modulators
of subtle energy and the goal is to free the prana to travel fully
through the whole body: grounding your first chakra and rising through
the core to the infinite consciousness of the crown.
In this 4-day training, yoga teachers and seasoned
students will learn
asanas through the lens of the chakra system. What postures do we
to open, stimulate, or relax various chakras? How do we read the
to understand the functioning of the chakras within? How do we
opposites, such as opening and closing, holding and releasing, charging
and discharging, to pump energy through the whole body-mind
How do we incorporate breath, mantra and mudras into our chakra
practice? How do we access and strengthen the core?
You will learn sun salute variations for
each chakra, along with yoga
and bioenergetic exercises for each chakra, along with chakra
philosophy, pranayama, mantras, guided meditation and more.
