The Chakras represent 7 energies in our bodies and are described as whirling disks of light. Yogis believe that if all of these 7 energies are in perfect harmony you will be at peace, spiritually, mentally, and physically. One method of balancing the chakras is to meditate on the meanings used in each of the chakras symbols. The chakra icons are composed of lotus petals, triangles, colors, circles, Sanskrit letters, and other symbols.
Our skillful yogis design classes that work to gently stretch and open specific areas of the body in a natural succession. Focused classes can target areas where you feel shut down or closed off. For example, hip-opening postures can target the lower chakras while back bends and shoulder openers can be good for the heart chakra.
If you have something you wish to find balance, please discuss with your class Yogi.
