Yoga Practices to Harmonize the Chakras with Abby Dobbs

Join Abby Dobbs in this special workshop where you’ll learn practices to connect with, empower, and expand your chakra energy. Chakras are powerful energy centers through which we uptake and transmute Source energy into our physical, emotional, and spiritual bodies. As yogis, the chakra system is our most direct and effective tool to work with our own individual energy fields. When we are stressed out or anxious, our physical and energetic bodies contract and tighten, cutting off our ability to communicate with Source energy. In this workshop, we’ll learn tools to soften and open our chakras so that we can harmonize more easily with universal energy.

The workshop will begin with ceremony to tap into the guidance of the Four Directions and our ancestral wisdom, followed by a Hatha-Inspired Vinyasa Flow practice to open and warm the physical body. Then, we’ll move through breathing practices and a guided meditation that will deepen the visceral experience of prana moving within and around the chakras. Each part of this workshop will build your skillfulness in feeling the chakras. You’ll leave feeling  relaxed and connected and with actionable tools to continue working with your chakras.

Saturday August 17, 3-5 pm
