Light & Dark: Using Yoga + Art to Understand Chakras
To be a star, you must shine your own light, follow your own path,
and don't worry about the darkness, for that is when the stars shine brightest.
What are chakras?
Chakras are centers in our bodies through which energy flows; they help regulate processes from organ function and immune system to emotional and mental well-being. There are seven key points in the subtle body that are thought to be chakras – these vortexes of energy run from the base of your spine to the crown of your head. Each chakra plays a unique role in your well-being, and is affected by your day-to-day experiences, thoughts and emotions. Over time, this can lead to out-of-balance or blocked chakras, contributing to health issues, relationship challenges, depression, anxiety, and more.
This is why it is so valuable to understand each chakra and what we can do to keep this energy flowing freely – call it an energetic tune-up. Each chakra is made up of light and dark elements that must be balanced to ensure a healthy mind, body and sense of Self. When you balance your chakras, you will experience a clearer mind, more energy, sharper intuition and an amazing feeling of flow in your life.
Time for an energetic calibration and tune-up…
In this Chakra Workshop, we will use breath, movement and creative techniques to explore the light and dark sides of each of these 7 sacred energy centers within you. Through yoga and meditation, you will discover the power and knowledge you hold within to create balance and harmony for optimal health and peace of mind. We will also explore using intuition and creativity to connect with this energy, creating your own unique chakra mandala art.
You will leave this workshop with:
- A better understanding of the chakras
- A simple and effective chakra balancing yoga sequence that you can do anywhere
- A beautiful piece of mandala art that comes from your self-exploration
These tools can be used to support your ongoing journey through both the light and dark places.
BONUS: This workshop is designed to give you a sneak peak of the upcoming 3-Day Chakra Camp, to be held at Lake Crescent on April 1-3 2016. All attendees will receive a special discount offer not offered to the public, that can be used towards Chakra Camp.
