Workshop Wednesdays: Balance Your Dosha @ Dragonfly Yoga Studio
Jul 18 @ 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 some extra classes 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:

Chakra Balancing Yoga Series: 2nd 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 2nd Chakra or Svadhistana 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 Svadhistana 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.
