Chakra Yoga Studies The Essence of Mind-Body Health January 14, 2012 Preston, Connecticut
The chakras are a psychological, philosophical and spiritual framework for human evolution and development. Originating in the Indian subcontinent thousands of years ago, the chakras are an important road map for our life journey as we evolve from basic needs toward more subtle and spiritual aspirations. Chakra is a Sanskrit word that means "wheel" and refers to centers of energy or vital life force within the body. There are seven main chakras that align with the human spine and many smaller ones throughout the body. These centers receive, store, and distribute energy to specific parts of the mind-body. Each of the chakra energies has a theme or core intention. Hatha yoga practices including asana and pranayama are seen as vehicles for opening, aligning, and balancing the chakras. Chakra practice is a key foundation of the study of Yoga.
In this workshop, you'll be introduced to the chakras as a system for self-understanding and personal healing. This workshop is part lecture, part practice. All levels welcome. Asana modifications will be offered as needed.
