Come explore an ancient philosophy regarding the centers of our experience, while learning practical applications in our current lives. Welcome to the Chakras!
The word Chakra comes from an ancient Indian language known as Sanskrit. Chakra means vortex, spinning wheel or circle. Chakras are the major centers of spiritual power in the human body and are circles of energy which balance, store, and distribute the energies of life, all through our physical body along the subtle body. The subtle body is the non-physical body, otherwise known as our soul or spirit, which overlays our physical body.
The belief in Chakras started in India, and is utilize in Ayurvedic dates from around 2500 BC. The word Ayurvedic comes from two Indian words-Ayur, meaning life, and Veda, meaning knowledge. Ayurvedic or life knowledge medicine may be interpreted as knowledge on how to lead a healthy life. Ayurvedic medicine observes illness as unevenness in the body, which may be treated with a mixture of meditation, physical exercise, and herbal treatments.
If you could imagine Chakras as circle of energy, flowing all the way through our body, these circles of energy assist in the running of our body, mind, and soul. If a Chakra is not performing correctly, this could cause our physical health, mental health, and our spiritual selves to suffer. Although there are hundreds of Chakras in our body, we will introduce the 7 major Chakras below. These Chakras start at the base of the spine and move upwards to the last one at the crown of the head. They coincide with the positions along the spinal cord of the major nerve ganglia in our physical body.
A Chakra relevant yoga flow will be included in the class, so please bring your yoga mat and wear comfortable clothing. Class fee of $20.
