In the yogic philosophy, there are hundreds of 'chakras' located at different areas throughout the body, through which an invisible energy called Prana (vital life force energy) is circulated. Chakra, a Sanskrit word meaning 'wheel' or 'disk', is essentially a spinning vortex of energy. There are 7 primary chakras along the 'astral' or 'etheric' spine, which correlates with the physical spine.
Each of the primary chakras corresponds with a major nerve plexus within the body, as well as with certain organs and glands, and has particular emotional and psycho-spiritual attributes. When the chakras are balanced, the Prana flows freely through the body and we feel vibrant, healthy and alive. Using the technology of Kundalini Yoga, each week we will focus on a different chakra, beginning from the ground up with the root chakra and moving our way up the astral spine to the crown chakra, through the Aura and beyond.
Kundalini Yoga is an ancient, holistic yogic technology, which incorporates a dynamic blend of exercises, postures (asana), breath work (pranayama), chanting (mantra), hand gestures (mudra) and meditation to heal, balance and align our physical, mental and energy bodies.
This series is open to all levels of experience with Yoga.
