Continuing Education: Intro to Ayurveda and Chakra Balancing

September 29th and 30th, 10am-5pm

Cost: $300

The Chakra balancing class is based on the ancient Indian Ayurvedic Marma-points healing modality and the seven major Chakras energy system in the body, similar to the Meridian System in Chinese Acupressure. During the theory part of the class, the students will learn how the seven major Chakras correspond to the elements, the glands and organs in the body, as well as how the Chakras influence our body, mind, and spirit on a personal and collective level.

During the practice part of the class, students will learn how to incorporate hands-on Chakra balancing by choosing specific areas of the body to focus on. The students may use massage tables or floor mats to assist each other. They will learn corresponding inclined yoga postures that help with Chakra balancing, along with specific breathing and assisted stretching/effleurage techniques to create space for relaxation and healing.
