Join Sho Higuchi in his signature restorative yoga and yoga nidra series to balance the 7 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 this special series, we will use the chakras and Yoga Nidra meditation to help spark joy and happiness to create direction and a sense of purpose in our lives. In each workshop, we will move through a unique blend of gentle asana, restorative yoga, pranayama/breath work, and yoga nidra meditation all while embarking through Sho’s magical stories and visuals. By diving into each individual chakra, we will reflect upon one of the “Pillars of Joy” as taught by many cultures and leaders throughout the world. Take each workshop separately or join in on all 7 for the complete experience!
“The incredible thing is that when we think of alleviating other people’s suffering, our own suffering is reduced. This is the true secret to happiness.” – Dalai Lama
Every single culture throughout the world has their core, golden teaching: compassion. Across many teachings, it is taught that compassion is the cure to all suffering. Many recent studies have also shown the practice of compassion has the ability to decrease stress, improve sleep, improve our immune system, promote concentration and focus, and even slow down the aging process! In yoga it is taught that compassion, love, and acceptance are our innate qualities. These are the qualities we all seek and desire – probably why the most revered people in the world are those who practiced and taught the art of compassion.
This workshop will focus on cultivating compassion through the balancing of Anahata Chakra, our fourth major energy center in the body. Anahata chakra is our heart center and governs our ability to love and receive love. We all desire a sense of purpose, a sense of belonging – to be needed, to be wanted. By reconnecting to our heart center and building the quality of compassion deep within us, we will spark purpose, greater joy, and happiness throughout our lives.
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. Together with some gentle movement and breathing, we will work to remove the deep rooted tensions and stresses stored in the physical, mental, and emotional bodies.
