Chakras are the gateways between the inner and outer worlds. The chakra system provides the architecture of the soul that brings spirit and body into union, the true meaning of yoga. This training with Anodea Judith focuses on teaching the chakras through yoga, and includes:

  • How to diagnose excess and deficient chakras
  • Ways of addressing these imbalances through yoga practice and other techniques, including chakra-based Sun Salutations
  • How to integrate the principles and energy of each chakra into the poses for a comprehensive chakra focus

Learn to bring this profound formula for wholeness into your yoga classes. Working with the dualities inherent in tantric philosophy and emphasizing the unitive core, or sushumna, this workshop includes postures, pranayama, mudras, sounds, and bioenergetic techniques for each chakra. The first four chakras are explored through asana practice, and the upper three through chanting, meditation, and philosophy.

In this training, yoga teachers and seasoned students will learn asanas through the lens of the chakra system. What postures do we use to open, stimulate, or relax various chakras? How do we read the body to understand the functioning of the chakras within? How do we combine opposites, such as opening and closing, holding and releasing, charging and discharging, to pump energy through the whole body-mind system? How do we incorporate breath, mantra and mudras into our chakra practice? How do we access and strengthen the core?

The chakras represent the architecture of the human soul. As meeting points between mind and body, spirit and matter, the chakras form the yoke of yoga. As portals between the worlds, the chakras are the seven windows to the soul that connect the inner world with the outer.

Yoga is the spiritual language that opens these centers and brings us to the core consciousness of the divine within. Chakras are modulators of subtle energy and the goal is to free the prana to travel fully through the whole body: grounding your first chakra and rising through the core to the infinite consciousness of the crown.

You will learn sun salute variations for each chakra, along with yoga and bioenergetic exercises for each chakra, along with chakra philosophy, pranayama, mantras, guided meditation and more.
