Chakras in a Nutshell

Sunday, June 6, 2021
9 am – 1 pm
Students receive 4 CEUs from Yoga Alliance
Online instruction by Fernando Avellanet

Chakras in a Nutshell is designed as an introduction to the more in-depth 7-week (and 14 CEU hours Yoga Alliance) personal journey into the Chakras Immersion Series (101). Chakras in a Nutshell is a one-day, 4-hour (with 4 CEU hours from Yoga Alliance) intensive designed to be taught separately from the series, providing a fundamental understanding of the historical context and practice of chakras.

The four hours will contain a lecture on the basic scientific principles surrounding the effects of a transformative practice of chakras and energetic simulations in your physical yoga practice. The class will cover the importance of the Chakra & Nadis system, as well as the correlation with our nervous system and physiological functions, and our Kosha and Doshas. This class will also highlight the importance of Patanjali’s teachings, and the Tantric traditions and influence in the new age interpretations of Chakra practice. After the lecture, we will engage in a brief mat practice of energetic movements synchronized with breath work, meditation practice and yoga Nidra methodologies.
