Exploring the Chakras through Restorative Yoga: 10/6 – 11/17

In this series we will use restorative yoga poses to enhance and relax into the seven chakras. Each week we will explore one chakra, starting with the first (base) chakra and moving on up in sequence until we reach the ultimate chakra of connection to Source and bliss. Guided visualizations and instructions about each energy center will accompany the poses.

Props, mats, blankets included. Please wear loose clothing you can comfortably move in; it might be fun to wear the appropriate chakra color (eg: first chakra = red, second chakra = orange, etc). Suitable for beginners as well as proficient meditators.

This 7 week course will be offered Thursdays, 3:30-4:45pm, from October 6th through November 17th. A full paying series is $77 and the course is available on a sliding scale (based on income).

The course will require a minimum of 4 people to be signed up. If we haven’t hit the minimum we will contact those already signed up so we can all have a chance to recruit a friend or two in the last few days.

Please note: this class is capped at 9 people to ensure that there are enough props for all involved.

Please note: Refunds are not available for missed classes.
