I'm so thrilled to be guest teaching at RYC for the month of December! I'll be taking you on a journey through the seven major Chakras, offering accessible introductions, a simple physical practice for each, essential oil pairings, and even a playlist to help you RELAX into each Chakra's energy (this is RYC after all). Check @restorativeyoga.club on Instagram every few days for the latest lesson.
According to Anodea Judith, the Chakras are "organizing centers for the reception, assimilation, and transmission of life energies." I love that description because, like most systems, they help us make sense of the world around us and, in this case, the world within. The Chakras, located on the vertical axis at the center of the body (approximately at the front of the spine), serve as gateways connecting the physical body to the subtle energy bodies that aren't so obvious, but equally important to honor. By tapping into these energy centers, we can access great strength, inherent wisdom, and a more profound relationship with spirit.
