Traditional Indian medicine and spiritual science teach us that the physical body is comprised of more than just bones, muscles, and organs. Instead, it is understood to also include a more subtle body, sometimes called the light body, spiritual body or aura. This subtle body includes a series of energy centers known as chakras. Each chakra governs specific behaviors and values in our lives, such as material security, communication, and love, and serves to regulate various systems within the physical body. Yoga is one of the most
basic ways to balance the chakras because it creates alignment in the physical
body. Balancing and stabilizing your physical body through asana (yoga posture)
practice also rebalances your subtle body.
This state of balance aids to regulate behaviors and makes it easier to
overcome outdated patterns, beliefs, and habits.
This training intensive will take you deep into the science
of the energy body. Not only will you
learn about the physical and emotional qualities of each chakra center, you
will also explore the yoga postures that best balance each chakra center. This class will guide you through the understanding,
preparation and sequencing of a yoga practice specifically designed to work
with the chakras, including guided meditations.
This class is required for our 200-hour Yoga Teacher
Trainees, but is open to all yogis who are interested to deepen their practice. This course does require several hours of on-line self-work which will be released before 12/1/2019 so be sure to register early!
