A DEEPER LOOK:
Yogic Journey Through the Chakras
with Kris Harris
March 18th 1-4pm
Check in as we emerge into the spring of a beautiful year! Take your yoga further by walking through different aspects of your physical/emotional/mental/spiritual self, your inner world, and your life using the wisdom of the chakras. Find insight on any inner imbalances or misconceptions, and feel for the right actions for greater balance, truth, fullness, your greater abilities in areas of creativity, love, expression, intuition/insight, connection, and truly delving into your own heart, your own self. We'll start with a bit of light yoga to relax and open, and then delve in through discussion and short "looking within" exercises! Wear comfy clothes, and bring a notebook and pen!
$20 - 35 sliding scale offering
