According to ancient yogic texts, prana (lifeforce) energy flows throughout our body via pathways called nadis and along these pathways there are vortexes known as chakras, that help push this energy along. Ancient yogis believed that energy flow in one or more of these chakras could be excessive or deficient, therefore triggering physical, mental and/or emotional imbalances.
In this seven-week series you’ll learn the basics of this energetic system from both an Eastern and Western standpoint. The series will be structured around the most widely accepted model of this system, which describes seven major chakras running along the spine to the top of the head. Each class will be dedicated to one chakra at a time, with poses and meditation practices geared toward balancing the flow of energy within them. Even the most die-hard skeptics can benefit from learning about the chakra system as it offers insights into who we are and where we may need healing.
A description of each upcoming class will be posted on our website; see here: http://puryogatoronto.com/whats-new/
