Hi! I am Brooke Smokelin! I am the founder of Chakra Activation Yoga and the creator of the Chakra Activation Deck. I am an experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT), IKYTA certified Kundalini Yoga Teacher, Yoga Therapist, Sound Healer, and Musician. For over 18 years I have studied with teachers in the Kundalini, Sivananda, Ashtanga, and Kriya Yoga traditions, as well as the American Sanskrit Institute. Through my various studies and an ever-blooming inspiration and fascination with the yogic chakra system, Chakra Activation Yoga has become the cornerstone of my practice and my teachings. In Chakra Activation Yoga we "ignite the light" by learning and applying specific yogic tools of asana (postures), pranayama (breathing exercises), mantra (repetitive sounds), and meditations to specific issues and imbalances in our lives and, through regular practice, bring the body-mind-spirit into better health and harmonization. For years I have developed and refined my Chakra Activation Yoga as a creative and experiential medium to inform and ignite others with a knowledge of and techniques to embody their “full-spectrum” selves. I offer classes and workshops, private and semi-private sessions, retreats, teacher and practitioner training programs (Yoga CEUs available) in yoga and chakra education, yoga therapy techniques, energy activation and chakra balancing, as well as various vibrational healing/sound therapy modalities.
