JUNE WORKSHOPS

Chakra Alchemy Kundalini Yoga w/ Leah Fae

This is a special series during the normal Thursday night Kundalini Class from 5:30-6:45pm weekly
Running from Thursday May 10th-June 28th | Use your yoga memberships or drop-in
The Chakras are located within the cerebrospinal system and are points of interaction between body and spirit. This energy is electrochemical and operates as Prana, which moves through the body along the nadi channels.
Through Kundalini Yoga, Pranayama, Emotional Awareness, and Meditation we will learn to tune into our energy centers, listen to our bodies and bring awareness to the relationship between our physical and energetic selves.
Each week we will focus on a different chakra concluding with the 8th chakra, the Aura.
Join us for all 8 classes or drop in as your availability permits.
June 21 – Crown Chakra: Connect to Spirit
June 28 – Aura Chakra: Manifest Abundance and Flow

Body Ascension Breath Workshop

Saturday June 23rd | 1-3pm
Limited space in this class – 10 spots available!

Register directly in the link below!

Uncover your hidden potential, release what is no longer serving you and make room for your highest self as we dive deep into a guided therapeutic practice that uses the #1 self-healing tool, BREATH! Breathwork is the key to relaxation, where transformation begins. Many relaxation techniques such as Yoga, Meditation and Hypnosis all revolve around the breath.

Body Ascension Breath infuses the body with PRANA [life force], CHARGES our spinal fluid and sends ENERGY through 72,000+ pathways. The flush of energy bathes our cells, strengthens our nervous system and brings our AWARENESS deep into the body. Cycling awareness empowers us to edit cellular memory and choose conscious projections. All of this heightens our sensory and intuitive perceptions while tuning our frequency to true self.

Lying comfortably, you will be guided through specific breathing patterns that amplify and strengthen your body’s ability to relax and heal itself like never before. This practice uses Sound Therapy, Craniosacral Therapy, Reiki and gentle movements all to enhance your experience. To end the session, you will enjoy a beautiful crystal bowl sound bath to ground you back into your body.

Dress cozy and please bring along water, a blanket and pillow.

For more information, you can contact Jake Butchart at www.lungsoflove.com or by email at lungsoflovebreathing@gmail.com

Investment in self: $80
