2019 Summer Series to Awaken the Chakras! July 11-August 22
Classes meet on Thursdays, 7:15 to 8:45 pm. Use your class card or purchase the Chakra Series card here. Class make-ups are available through August 25.
Your chakras are energy points within the body through which the life force (prana) or vital energy move. With a regular yoga practice, we have the capacity to awaken and balance the chakras.
In this 7-week Kundalini Yoga series, we will explore the physical, spiritual and emotional aspects of each chakra. Every class will include a brief introduction to the chakra as well as a kriya and meditation designed to awaken that specific energy center.
You’ll have the opportunity to learn about each chakra individually while experiencing how they inter-relate and intersect. We’re holistic beings, so while it’s important to understand the various parts that make us who we are, we also must remember that we’re greater than the sum of our parts. Understanding the chakras is a gateway to understanding ourselves.
Each week will focus on a single chakra as well as the interrelationship between that chakra and other aspects of your physical and energetic body. There will be a brief introduction to the chakra and then we’ll practice a kriya and meditation designed to strengthen and balance that chakra in conjunction with the rest of your body. The final class, on August 23, will include an extended 31-minute meditation to activate the 7th (crown) chakra and 8th (aura) chakra.
For the full experience, we recommend you plan to attend the entire series. If you can’t make it on Thursdays, the topic will usually be reviewed in the Saturday 10 am class.
