Chakra Vinyasa | Liberating the Body Mandala

With Shiva Rea

The chakra system brings together the alchemy for tending the fire of the many dimensions of ourselves – root to heart to crown, inner and outer

Experience an immersion to tend the inner fire through the transformative full-spectrum practice of Chakra Vinyasa integrated with sublime teachings and meditations from the earliest Tantras.

Prana Vinyasa Teacher Training – and open to experienced yogis

Our journey will move through the Chakra Prana Vinyasa sequences refined over the last decade and integrated with the teachings and meditations from the earliest Tantra. Each day you will explore chakra prana vinyasa sequences to balance and liberate your system integrating chakra mandala namaskar, circular prana flow sequencing, chakra-based meditation, mantra, and chakra yoga nidra (deep relaxation). We will also integrate movement meditations from prana vinyasa for exploration and embodiment.

Through this practical and inspirational exploration of the chakra system and yogic body, we will develop a transformative approach to the body mandala and learn to assess our imbalances and translate this into practical vinyasa yoga sequences for our self, private students, group classes and living the flow of yoga.

In a world where we can see the disconnecting effects of a “dim fire” or the burn out of the “excessive fire”, inner fire-keeping is an all-encompassing metaphor for the yoga of householder life. The chakra system brings together the alchemy for tending the fire of the many dimensions of ourselves – root to heart to crown, inner and outer. Our mission is to emerge nourished and inspired with tools to deepen your practice, teaching living yoga.
