Join Sho Higuchi in this very special workshop series to balance all seven of our major chakras. The chakras are the psychic wheels of energy, the focal points of prana, the vital life force that flows through our mind-body system. By balancing the major chakras, we not only regain health and balance in our physical, mental and emotional bodies, but we are able to find harmony and balance throughout our entire lives. In each workshop, we will focus on rebalancing a specific chakra through Sho’s unique blend of gentle asana, restorative yoga, pranayama/breath work and yoga nidra meditation. Take each workshop separately or join in on all seven for the complete experience!
Find freedom and joy in your life by balancing the Svadhistana Chakra, our second major energy center in the body. Svadhistana allows us the permission to feel – to let in our emotions, sensations, and pleasures without judgment or attachment. Simultaneously, it allows us to let go–release any tensions or memories tied to these thoughts. When Svadhistana is under active, or Tamasic, we can feel lifeless, out of touch with ourselves, or guilty of our feelings and sensations. When over active, or Rajasic, we are often ruled by these emotions and addicted to pleasure or stimulation. Second chakra also grants us the permission to let go, to forgive and release resentment, so that we can truly be free. A harmonious Svadhistana chakra gives us balance between work and play, allows us the ability to enjoy healthy sensuality and pleasures, and helps to discover the freedom and joy within.
Yoga Nidra, often called the art of conscious relaxation, is a healing practice which has been used to reduce anxiety, depression, pain, insomnia, and a number of other modern disease states. It is a unique meditation done on the back that helps to quiet the overactive mind and unwind the nervous system. With a unique blend of gentle asana, restorative postures, breath work and yoga nidra meditation, we will work to remove the deep rooted tensions and stresses stored in the physical, mental and emotional bodies.
