Anahata Chakra: Yoga to Open the Chest and Nurture the Heart
Mar 5, 2021| $335
In this workshop, we will investigate the connection between the physical heart and the heart chakra. We will also learn how proper circulation of blood/oxygen/nutrients/energy becomes a vehicle for moving prana (the vital life force) throughout the body, not only cleansing and healing the internal organs, but also impacting the quality of our thoughts and emotions. By becoming more attentive to the movements of prana and learning to enhance and direct its flow, we can balance and nurture the heart, create coherence between the heart and the mind, and expand inner awareness.
In this workshop we will explore:
- The Philosophy, Psychology and Science (Energetics) of the Anahata chakra
- Asana, movement and breathwork to balance the Anahata chakra
- Mantras & meditation to awaken Anahata energy
The information in this course will be presented in a modern, western context that is accessible to students of all levels, not just those who wish to teach yoga.
All of our teacher trainings are structured to be beneficial and enjoyable for those who wish not to teach. We believe yoga is a path of lifelong learning. Teacher training is a term that we use because we are Yoga Alliance and Washington State Certified Teaching Vocational School and that is the language that they determined for these classes. But that does not mean that these trainings are restricted for teachers only. We welcome everyone who is curious, who enjoys learning, who wishes to understand yoga in a deeper level.
