Intro to the Subtle Body & 7 Chakras

According to yoga philosophy, we are composed of several energetic layers that are often hidden beneath our physical bodies. In this workshop, we’ll explore the 7 chakras,  energy centers that govern everything from our sense of grounding and stability to our ability to love with others, voice our opinions freely, and connect with our intuition. Through discussion, movement, and meditation, we’ll explore and balance each of these wheels of energy in your body.
