This special series of classes works both independently and in conjunction with one another to tune up an area that is out of balance, or realign the entire system to achieve a state of perfect, resonant balance within the body. As a practitioner, you can choose to do just one class (each are about 20 minutes long) or do multiple classes depending on your time constraints and needs for a particular day.
Root Chakra: Muladhara
The root chakra encompasses our base and creates the foundation upon which we stand. When we can stand up for ourselves and be grounded in a safe and secure existence, we can walk proudly in our life. This mini-class creates the foundation for the first chakra to be balanced, rooted and grounded through strong standing poses.
Sacral Chakra: Svadisthana
The sacral chakra is the seat of our emotions, creativity and relationships. By allowing our creativity and passion to have an outlet, this chakra flourishes. This mini-class utilizes the power of hip openers to create the space for abundance and creativity to arise.
Power Chakra: Manipura
The power chakra illuminates our ego and self-identity. When we learn to use who we are to shine light on the greater good and more fully allow others to be themselves, then our ego has found it's place in the world. This mini-class takes us through twisting postures to wring out the ego and give us the internal space to become comfortable with ourselves.
Heart Chakra: Anahata
The heart chakra is the seat of compassion, kindness and unconditional love. When this chakra is balanced, we are able to create lives that resonate with kindness and friendship toward others; in short, we become fun people to hang out with. Through backbends, we fully open the power embodied in the hearts chakra and emanate the power of love.
Throat Chakra: Vishuddha
The throat chakra is the center of all our communication. In this day and age, when communication happens through voice, email, text message and tweets, it is more important than ever to create clarity and compassion in our messages. Using the powerful benefits of shoulderstand, plow pose and various neck stretches, we help the throat open to it's full potential.
Third Eye Chakra: Ajna
The third eye center is known as the "command center," or seat of our highest self. It is with wisdom and intuition that we are able to perceive the world without boundaries or separateness. When we can find the sameness in all the things around us, then tension and judgement dissolves. This is a wonderfully compassionate way to live, and we cultivate this strength in this mini-class through breath work and some guided meditation.
Crown Chakra: Sahasrara
The crown chakra represents our connection to a higher power. When this is stifled, we feel depressed, anxious, bored and alone. By enlivening this energetic center and reconnecting to source, we are infused with power, joy and a feeling that we are an integral part of our world. In this mini-class, we use guided meditation and deep relaxation to open this energetic center and feel rejuvenated.
