Hatha Yoga & The Chakras

with Reva

Saturday, August 15st 2018 1:30pm-3:00pm


In this introductory workshop, Reva will show how we can use classic Hatha asana to access the energies of our subtle body. Class starts with a short opening about Chakras, what they are, what types of feelings or sensations can they provoke and why they can be important to your practice.

After a brief meditation and time to set intention, Reva will lead you through an hour long sequence which enhances the qualities of each Chakra. Working from the root to the crown you will draw the energy up from the base and clear the passageway for it to flow steadily and continuously. End with an intentional Savasana for a few more moments of meditation and reflection.

In Yoga we seek to access the beneficial energies of the Universe. What exists in the Universe also exists within ourselves. Come take a moment to acknowledge the invisible and drop into the vibration. $20

Cost:  $20 Register here.

It’s just old age coming.
Really, I like her.
But, shamefully, I do not feel happy to see her.
She sits at a different cafeteria table than me.

Kate is ready to harness the heat and do something crazy with it. She can’t wait to sit at the same table with her menopausal self, Laura Culberg and all of you.

The core houses the 3rd chakra located between the solar plexus and the navel, and known as Manipura or the jewel in the city it’s here that our expression of will, personal power and identity are held.
