July workshops with Checka Antifonario

CHAKRA FLOW – AN ENERGETIC EXPLORATION
Saturday, July 19th 9-11am $25
It’s mid-summer and the world is blooming! It’s a beautiful time to take a look at your internal landscape as well, as you are as dynamic and fluid as the seasons. Through an engaging flow of yoga postures, breathing exercises and meditations, we will explore our seven major energy centers, or chakras. You will have the chance to learn how these centers relate to physical anatomy, go inward and feel the directional flows of subtle energy in your body, and consider the relationship between your actions, thoughts, emotions, and experiences and each chakra. This two-hour workshop will be a unique and enlightening opportunity appropriate for all, whether you’re familiar with chakra philosophy or have yet to explore these ancient teachings. Let’s step step off of our mats feeling balanced and ready to savor the rest of the summer!

PEACE IN PRACTICE – RESTORATIVE YOGA WORKSHOP
Saturday, July 29th 4-5:30pm $25
Take some time to soothe your body and mind, release tension, and connect with the peace and knowing deep within yourself. This workshop will begin with a very gentle slow flow to prepare the body for long holds of well-supported restorative yoga postures. After spending ample, healing time in each restorative position, we will close with an extended Savasana infused with light essential oils (if desired). Checka will also offer Reiki energy work during the practice to help foster a quiet and healing space for all.
