Chakra Sadhana: Exploring Your Inner Solar System
A Six Week Yoga Training, With Natasha Korshak
Six Saturdays, April 23rd to May 28th, from 10:00 to 12:00 noon
In Person Only. Class size is limited.
The chakras are an important part of yoga’s understanding of the subtle body. They are considered real yet immaterial and have many rich symbols and associations that help the practitioner link the body/mind/spirit through experiential practice. Sādhanā implies a devotional practice or sincere effort towards transformation.
In this seminar you will explore the chakra system from root to crown using traditional and creative practices to strengthen the connection between physical and subtle body knowledge. Traditional methods may include asana, pranayama, mudra, bandha, mantra, yantra, kriyas; or in English, postures, breathing, gestures, positional locks, sound, image, or cleansing techniques. Creative practices will help you take the formal element of practice into the normal workings of your daily life and relationships. Emphasis will be put upon natural observation, growing sensitivity, and regulating energy and mood rather than having extraordinary experiences or insights.
Each session will be a blend of practice, process, and teaching and provide a structured format for the continuation of that chakra practice and exploration during the week. All levels of yoga practitioner are welcome although there should be an interest to engage in a moderate physical practice, some ability to meditate, a willingness to look at lifestyle habits, and the ability to focus on the full 6 week process.
For Yoga Teachers and Trainees there are 15 hours of credit available upon completion of the program and submission of a reflection project.
