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!
Humility is the recognition that as human beings we can’t solve everything or control all aspects of life…and that it’s okay. We don’t have all the answers. We can’t do everything perfectly…and we don’t need to. In any moment all we can do is our best. Humility is the power to accept that our best is enough. That we are enough.
In this special workshop we will cultivate humility through the balancing of Vishuddhi Chakra, our fifth major energy center in the body. Vishuddhi is our purification center and helps us to remove toxins and impurities in our bodies and minds, keeping us healthy and vibrant. Our suffering is often amplified by that inner voice inside of us that always tells us we are not enough. That we need more, to be more, to do more. This voice is what the yogis call ahamkara, our ego. Vishuddhi chakra helps us to tame the ego and reconnect with the softer, quieter voice of our intuition and inner truth. Through this voice, we are able to rediscover our deepest inner most desire and pave our path toward the life we are destined to lead.
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.
