Chakra Balancing Yoga Series: Root Chakra

“A chakra is a center of organization that receives, assimilates, and expresses life force energy. Chakra translates to “wheel” or “disc” and any vortex of activity can be called a chakra. The chakra system is a seven-leveled philosophical model of the universe. In the West, we learn of this system through the discipline of Yoga. With the mental and physical practices of Yoga, the chakras represent the steps through the ever-expanding states of consciousness that bind the individual with the divine.” –Anodea Judith

In this 4-week series we will dive into the basic information around the 1st Chakra or Muladhara Chakra. We will learn what this chakra represents, yoga sequences to support balancing this chakra, as well as guided meditations to inspire introspection. A mixture of Vinyasa Yoga, Yin Yoga, guided meditation, and silent meditation will be used to explore the facets of the Root Chakra. We will understand the emotion and shadow emotion related to this chakra to support us on our healing journey. Finally, we will participate in an expressive chakra exercise through art, dance, mantra, or journaling to apply the resources learned in this workshop.

Pranayama Workshop Series @ Dragonfly Yoga Studio
Jun 30 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

PRANAYAMA REMOVES THE VEIL COVERING THE LIGHT OF KNOWLEDGE AND HERALDS THE DAWN OF WISDOM.

– YOGA SUTRAS

Yoga practitioners in the United States often focus on Asana (postures), sometimes forgetting Pranayama, another vital step on the Eight Limbs Yoga Path. Pranayama, or yogic breathing, relieves stress, improves concentration, aids digestion, deepens our physical yoga practice, and ultimately prepares us for extended meditation.

Dragonfly’s Pranayama Workhops are designed as an introduction into Hatha Yoga breathing techniques. In these workshops, we’ll learn to prepare our senses and postures for pranayama through asana, various exercises and introductory meditation/relaxation techniques. In addition to practicing specific types of pranayama, we’ll also take a look at how breathing affects the body and its energies.

Our goal will be to safely bring pranayama into our everyday routine, as well as our everyday asana practice. Dragonfly Teacher Training Students will also leave with knowledge of incorporating more pranayama into their yoga classes.

The Workshop Series is designed for students of Dragonfly’s 200 Hour Teacher Training, but everyone is welcome to enroll. You do not need to attend the workshops in order. Beginners are welcome, but we strongly encourage you to attend some regularly scheduled yoga classes before enrolling.

Workshop Wednesdays: Balance Your Dosha @ Dragonfly Yoga Studio
Jul 11 @ 5:45 pm – 6:45 pm

This workshop is part of our Workshop Wednesdays series, which offers workshop instruction at group class pricing. You can drop in to any of these workshops sessions for $17 or use your existing class package (Buy a 5-pack for $70 and have an extra class left).

Movement and Breath to Balance Your Dosha

Doshas are the three energies that define every individual’s makeup. Everyone has all three doshas: vata, pitta and kapha. Often times a person’s personality can reflect certain doshas. However, you can become imbalanced in any dosha.

In this workshop with Dragonfly co-owner and Yoga Therapist Joe Simek, we will look at movement and breath practices that can help balance each of the three doshas. If you suffer with a health condition, it can be important to tailor your yoga practice in order to bring balance back to your system.

A one-size-fits-all approach to your yoga practice may not work. For example: If you suffer from anxiety, you may need to ground your energy to balance your vata dosha. Conversely, if you suffer from depression, you may need to lift your energy to balance your kapha dosha.

In each workshop session, we will spend time discussing conditions that often result in specific dosha imbalances, and how yoga therapists generally approach these conditions. We’ll learn very specific asana or movement practices, as well as pranayama or breathing techniques, to help balance each dosha.

You are welcome to attend one or all three of these workshops. No experience is necessary. Learning all of these techniques can be informative and helpful, even if you suffer from a specific condition.

You may also choose to attend a specific workshop based on your needs. Here is a list of conditions that MIGHT benefit from these practices, along with the dates for each workshop:

Balance Your Vata Dosha
July 11, 2018, 5:45 – 6:45 p.m.
Conditions To Consider: Anxiety, Vertigo, Osteoarthritis, IBS, Weight Loss/Obesity

Balance Your Pitta Dosha
July 18, 2018, 5:45 – 6:45 p.m.
Conditions To Consider: Insomnia, Headaches, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Colitis, Addiction

Balance Your Kapha Dosha
