Chakras are energy centers in the body. Each chakra is associated with different parts of the body and has an effect on our physical and mental state.
In the Chakra Yoga Program we will focus on the 7 principal chakras of the body and learn how to activate and balance them through yoga.
The program consists of 7 classes.
Each class focuses on one of the chakras and includes:
information about it and the imbalances in it,
a simple meditation exercise and
a yoga session for all levels.
Some of the classes also include breathing exercises.
Discover the characteristics of each chakra (or energy axis) and their effect on you physically and psychologically in the introduction to the chakra yoga program. The class is free of charge. All you need to do is to create an account.
The Root Chakra or the Muladhara Chakra is associated with the sense of security, fortitude, and a feeling of fulfillment and stability in life. The class begins with information about the chakra and its signs and causes of imbalance, a few minutes of meditation, followed by simple yoga movements that help balance the root chakra to make you feel calm and still.
Sacral Chakra or Vadestana Chakra is related to feelings, emotions, and creativity. In this class, we will delve into the signs of this chakra’s dysfunction and practice yoga moves that focus on stretching the pelvis and hips helping to restore balance in the second chakra.
Willpower, self-confidence and the ability to face difficulties are the subject of the third class of the Chakra Yoga Program dedicated to the Solar Plexus chakra or the Manipura chakra.
The class includes information about the chakra, followed by a breathing exercise based on one of the most important yoga breathing techniques known as kapalabati or the breath of fire, followed by a yoga class which aims to create fire in the body through rapid and dynamic movements targeting especially the stomach area.
Activating the Solar Plexus chakra increases self-confidence, increases willpower, and helps to face life’s challenges in a better way.
The chakra of love and emotions or the Heart Chakra (Anahata Chakra) is the subject of the fourth session of the Chakra Yoga Program.
This chakra is responsible for self-love and the ability to give and receive love. The balance of this chakra affects our relationship with others.
