WITH LISA BROWN
ALIGNMENT VINYASA WORKSHOP focusing on 1ST CHAKRA
TUESDAY July 13, 1:30-3 PM
FREE SUMMER COMMUNITY CLASS
GROUND DOWN TO RISE UP
In this workshop we will address some of the basics of the Chakra system and focus specifically on the 1st Chakra, also known as the Root Chakra or Muladhara Chakra.
The relationship between the 1st Chakra and the rest of the Chakras helps us understand the importance of strengthening the foundation to support the whole. When you think about the body and the practice of yoga you must address the very foundation on which it is all based. The element that represents the 1st Chakra is Earth as we reach our roots deeply downward to ground ourselves. We can then give power to rising up and celebrating the strength and freedom available to us through our foundation. Our practice will be taught using alignment principles and asanas with emphasis on grounding, balancing, hip-opening and stabilization.
