Chakras 101 Workshop

1 hour 30 minutes

What is a Chakra?  Why would I want to learn about the chakras?  Chakra is a Sanskrit word that means "wheel."

 

Chakras are energy centers in the body that play an important role in our physical, mental, and spiritual well-being.

 

Each chakra influences the physical, emotional, psychological and hormonal aspects of our being. The chakras can receive and send energy, become blocked or over-stimulated; like water, the energy of our mind-body system needs to keep flowing.

Mastering the art of balancing one's own chakras has untold health benefits for body, mind and spirit.

 

Come to the Chakra 101 workshop and learn more about the chakras and learn and experience techniques for balancing your chakras. Wear loose fitting and

comfortable clothes and bring a notebook, pen and a yoga mat or towel.
