Chakra Intensive, with Lisa Silverstein

Sunday March 4 – Friday March 9. 6:30-7:45pm

Registration recommended. Drop-ins welcome.

Join in an exploration of the seven main energy centres in the body. The chakras are organizational centres that receive, assimilate, store and distribute life force energy. Using yoga poses, breath work, meditation and conscious relaxation, we will deepen our experience of the body’s holding patterns and safely encourage a freeing up of blocked energy.

Moving from the root, we will journey upward through the chakras finding new ways to liberate and balance the energies of earth, water, fire, air, sound, light and thought. Bridging the unconscious with conscious and open-hearted attention provides an opportunity for new possibilities and deep healing.

This workshop is open to students of all levels.

The Shoulder Complex: Keep it happy for life, with Gina Giammarco

Sunday March 25. 1:00-4:00pm

Registration recommended. Drop-ins welcome.

Gaining a bit more insight into the complex yet creative design of the shoulder girdle can be the first step into understanding why it can be an area with so many problems. We will explore movement and structure, concepts of reorganizing and realigning to give you some tools to work with. Keeping them “happy for life” is a goal; learning how to implement their function with their design is a start.
