WEEK #1
Tuesday, February 5th is the first class of the series, to bring balance to the root chakra, the Muladhara. Wear red to support this chakra! 
Don’t worry if you miss Tuesday’s Restorative version of the Muladhara chakra class, because I will be teaching the All Levels version of the Muladhara chakra class on Thursday night! 
Feel free to attend both classes, especially if you are interested in extra support of your root chakra. .

WEEK #2
This week’s focus is on the Svadhisthana chakra, which is seated just below the naval in the lower abdomen, and is associated with creativity, represented by the color orange. The sacral chakra governs the reproductive organs, bladder, and the kidneys. When the second chakra is balanced, you are more creative, productive, and focused.
Don’t worry if you miss Tuesday’s Restorative version of the Svadhisthana chakra class, because I will be teaching the All Levels version of the Svadhisthana chakra class on Thursday night! 
Feel free to attend both classes, especially if you are interested in extra support of your sacral chakra, and wear orange!

 

WEEK #3

Our focus this week, February 19th and 21st is balancing the Manipura, the third chakra. Wear yellow, if you have it!
A balanced Manipura chakra provides good digestion, intuitive wisdom, and self-confidence. An imbalanced Manipura can create low self-esteem and self-worth, or oppositely cause a lust for power and control, and imposing your will upon others. Stored emotions can be sadness and guilt. 
The Manipura will be our focus for both the Restorative class on Tuesday night, and the Level 1 class on Thursday. See you then!

 

WEEK #4

This week, February 26th and 28th we will focus on the fourth chakra, the Heart chakra, called the Anahata. 
The color for the Anahata is green. Balancing this chakra is important for the circulatory system, the heart and the thymus. It is in relation to love, compassion, harmony and forgiveness. This fourth chakra is the balance point, integrating the world of matter (the lower three chakras) with the world of spirit (the upper three chakras). 
The Anahata chakra will be our focus for both the Restorative class on Tuesday night, and the Level 1 class on Thursday. Wear green, and I will see you then!

WEEK #5
This week, Tuesday March 5th and 7th, in the Chakra Balancing series, the focus will be on the Vishuddha chakra, located in the throat governing our communication and listening. It is a bluish torquoise. It is important to balance this chakra so that we can communicate effectively. Tuesday night at 6:00 PM is the Restorative class, and the All Levels class is on Thursday night at 6:00 PM. Learn to care for your own energetic imbalances to help create an optimal You, and wear blue!


WEEK #6
This week is the Third Eye or Ajna chakra. The brain, pituitary and pineal glands are associated with this chakra as well as the ears, and it connects you to your intuition. 
The color is an indigo, or some version of a saturated bluish purple color. The effects of the yoga poses from both the Restorative class on Tuesday night and the active Level 1 class on Thursday will bring clarity and balance to this chakra.
