Chakra Yoga Class

Chakras are different energy centers in the body. There are 7 main chakras that we will focus on for this class. We will use some Kundalini postures and movements to get the energy moving, and most of our postures will be Hatha based (the postures you experience from most classes).

If it resonates that the body is made up of energy and everything is energy – so therefore you’d like to balance your energy, please consider joining this class.

Each of the 7 main chakras will be considered and postures will be dedicated to them.

As you create space in your body and mind with this sequence you will energize yourself and walk away with more awareness of your body and what you can do physically to promote good energy flow.

This class will move through poses that have the intention of opening up and balancing chakras. The poses will be chosen with each chakra in mind

Sound Meditation ~ Crystal Singing Bowls and Gong

Everything in our Universe is made purely of vibrations. As a result resonating with its own signature frequency. Ancient religions and modern sciences agree that our Reality is an ocean of living energy, and that all matter (such as a human being) is simply interpenetrating waves of energy which have crystallized into form and structure. This primordial life force energy is called by many names in different cultures – AUM (OM), Prana, Chi, Ki, Mana, Baraka, Spirit, or Quantum Energy.


Crystal Bowls work directly with this universal energy and channel it into the body to enliven our entire being! Through this super-flow of life-force energy, they can help us remember our connection with the Great Source therefore allowing us access to the unlimited healing energy from within. There is a tone and color that corresponds to each of the chakra centers and each part affects the totality. Although each crystal bowl will affect the whole body, you may feel the effects in one section of your body more deeply, but the vibrational sound will also travel throughout your entire energy field.

The Gong is said to be the greatest tool of the Yogi. To play the gong is to the play the universe itself. Yogi Bhajan, the master of the technology of Kundalini Yoga taught that out of the gong came all music, all sounds, and all words–the sound of the gong being the nucleus of the Word. The gong is not an instrument–it is pure reinforced vibration and is the only tool that you can produce space vibrations. The gong creates a space for the mind to release, it works on the meridians of the body, it allows emotional transformation to occurs, and it helps the nervous system. And in turn, our chakras, the energetic portals of the glandular system become organized and activated so that we may live in higher awareness.

The body is a network of vibrational fields and energy currents. Each individual resonates at his or her own vibration. Sound is an acoustical wave while color is an electromagnetic wave. The colors of the rainbow correspond to a specific musical note. This is in the same way that each chakra of the body correlates with a specific tone and color. The human body and the entire earth are made up of energy, vibrating at different frequencies. When out of rhythm, disease and disharmony result. Therefore vibrational sound healing addresses these imbalances or blockages of the energy channels.
