Summer Soulstice Sat Nam Yoga Fest: Yoga for Chakras and Energetic Cleanse through Bija Mantras with Mason and Frediliza
Learn postures, meditations and mantras to open, stimulate, relax and balance the Chakras. Explore the architecture of the human soul and how to read these modulators of subtle energy. Free the prana to travel fully through the whole body, starting by grounding your first chakra and rising through the core to the infinite consciousness of the crown. We will end this session with a Bija Mantra Meditation for energetic cleansing and light gong savasana.
(This class is a wonderful intro to the Chakra System. A peek into what you will learn in depth when we run the Full 7 Week Chakra Series in January)

Garden Labyrinth, Prayer Tree and Crystal Grids supported by Reiki Healers and New Paradigm Energy Healers (Free) with Sat Nam Yoga Community
Did you know the beautiful garden in front of Sat Nam continues to another lush private garden in the back? An escape from the bustle of the city, it’s a hidden gem of the west loop and the perfect place for our Labyrinth.
People walk labyrinths for many reasons. Some do it to relax, some as a walking meditation, some just for fun. Common Labyrinth effects may include lowered blood pressure, right brain activity and an over all sense of peace. We recommend that you ask a question or set an intention before entering the mouth of the maze and tie it to the prayer tree. It is said that once you reach the center (1/2 way mark) you will gain some clarity. Take a few moments in meditation at the center of the circle before the walk back out of the labyrinth used for contemplating any realizations.
Our labyrinth will be supported by Reiki and New Paradigm MDT Energy Healers, Crystal Healing Grids and sitar musician Alex Duvel. Take your time, move slowly and mindful, feel the earth beneath your feet, the sun on your shoulders and enjoy the Sat Nam Vortex!
