FOCUSING ON THE CHAKRAS IN RESTORATIVE YOGA: There are seven main energy centers, or chakras, of the body. These chakras are like spirals of energy, receiving and regulating life energy and transmitting it throughout the body. If any one of the chakras is blocked, then vital life energy cannot circulate.
In this class, we combine the soothing practice of Restorative Yoga with the awareness of the second chakra, which is the Sacral Chakra (Svadisthana Chakra), located at the navel. This chakra encourages us to experience the feelings that arise as we open to life just as it is.
We will do yoga poses that help us with adaptability and receptivity, opening up the hips and groins to release tension and provide freedom of movement in the pelvis.
All levels welcome! No prior yoga experience is necessary, as long as you are able to sit or lie on the floor.
