Chakras, or the “Wheels of Life,” are energy centers of the body.
We have seven main chakras, which relate to everything from our feelings of safety and security, to our sexuality and creativity, inner drive, ability to give and receive unconditional love, speak our mind, follow our intuition, and connect with a force greater than ourselves. Working with the chakra system can help us foster a deeper relationship with the self and illuminate areas of strength and weakness not just in the physical body but our mental, emotional, and spiritual bodies as well.
During this special class, we will practice specific yoga postures that are beneficial for the chakras in combination with positive affirmations, meditation, breathing exercises, and end with a sweet Yoga Nidra. Yoga Nidra is a systematic method for total relaxation. It means “Sleep of the Yogis,” and has also been aptly called the “Zero Stress Zone” and “Relaxing into Greatness.” At the height of practice, the subconscious – where our deepest tensions are stored – becomes relaxed and open. You’ll be guided into a familiar state of mental twilight between wakefulness and sleep known to neuroscientists as “theta.” Practitioners of Yoga Nidra describe a floating feeling of luscious comfort, safety, and well-being, and have a decreased sense of linear time passing.
