In addition to the physical body, we have a body of energy known as
the subtle body or “Pranamaya Kosha”. The Chakras, while
non-physical, are part of this subtle body, providing vital energy
flow from their placement along the spine to the material body in
order to maintain optimal well being. While there are many chakras,
this workshop will focus on the main seven that may seem be placed
along the physical spine, however, they run within the subtle central
channel known as the sushumna, through which prana, or life force, is
distributed to various regions of the body.
The state of our subtle body affects the physical body. Martha Graham
said, ”The body never lies.” When the subtle body is not operating at
it’s best, often we begin to experience symptoms in the physical body,
alerting us something is “off”. Because the the subtle body aids in
forming the physical body, it is important to keep these energy
centers flowing. An increased awareness of the subtle body brings
deeper awareness to the effects of our thoughts and actions in our
physical body, as well as our daily lives.
With a complete yoga practice, we connect more deeply with the manner in which we think, feel, and behave within our individual world. In this workshop, we will explore the relationship between yoga asanas (or postures) and the chakras.
This workshop will be divided into 3 parts: 40 minutes of lecture
regarding the chakra system, followed by a 60-minute Vinyasa practice,
ending with 20 minutes of Yoga Nidra including chakra
Date: June 10th-14th, 2017

Join us for an in-depth journey through the Chakra System, as we look beyond the Physical Body into the Subtle Body. Our Subtle Body often holds deeply buried experiences and or beliefs that may often be the source behind the symptoms of physical pain, as well as, mental and spiritual imbalances. Asana, Meditation and Effective Journaling techniques will be offered to enhance the healing benefit of your yoga practice both on and off the mat.
This two day, 12 hour Retreat will be held:
Day I (Journey Through “Life/Physical Stuff/Asana”-Chakra 1-4)
Day II (Journey Through “Ethereal/Mental Stuff/Meditation”- Chakra 5-7)
Date: February 17th-18th, 2018
Open to ALL, 12 CEUs available for Teachers
Merging Patanjali’s Sutra 2.3 (The Five Kleshas) and Neuroscience, this workshop is specifically centered around Contemplative Neuroscience which suggests that tapping into the limbic (feeling) part of the brain and making a habit of meditation can strengthen brain circuits responsible for maintaining concentration, thereby creating a life more in harmony with the authentic self. In addition to breath work, meditation tools, and journaling, we will explore The Five Kleshas, bringing to light faulty beliefs and working towards re-wiring the brain for greater awareness, empowerment, and the opportunity for desired change.
