AKA the “Better Living Through Western Chakras for Beginners” Workshop
6 Weeks to a Calmer, More Confident You
“I’m so stressed out.” We all struggle with looming burnout, from general work and family stress to full-on anxiety. What if you could find calm and be more self-assured in just six weeks? Using Yin Yoga (the calming part) and the chakra system (your roadmap to self-confidence), I’ll walk you through a program to find your best, less-stressed you. We’ll be journaling, having group discussions (where you only need to talk if you want to), and opening our bodies along with our minds.
- This workshop meets in person 2 hours per week on Monday nights from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
- OPTION: add 5 small-group Yin Yoga sessions on Wednesday evenings from 6:00 p.m. – 7:15 p.m.
- OPTION: add 10 small-group Yin Yoga sessions on Wednesdays from 6:00 p.m. – 7:15 p.m. and Sundays from 5:00 p.m. – 6:15 p.m.
I’m offering these extra Yin Yoga session options because they’ll help you to sit with (and cement) your thoughts about each week’s focus. Plus, I truly believe in the power of gentle effort to make the biggest changes. Physically, Yin Yoga is about relaxing your way into a more mobile body. Mentally, working on the chakras is a non-judgmental way to evaluate your Self. I think they pair well together, and I hope you’ll think so, too.
$365 for 6 weeks of 2-hour sessions until March 25, 2019. $425 on March 25 and after. Note: this class is limited to a maximum of 8 people.
If you would like to also practice the yoga specific to each week’s focus (and get a little homework check in), you can sign up for the weekly small-group sessions during the week that will only be open to workshop participants.
- Add 5 weekly sessions on Wednesday nights for only $250.
- Upgrade to 10 weekly sessions (on Wednesday nights and also on Sunday afternoons) for a bundle price of $350.
What if it’s super “woooo hippy-dippy”?
This is a Western chakras workshop. We won’t be getting mystical here. We’ll talk about what emotions are associated with which chakra, yes, but that’s a roadmap. If you don’t “believe” in chakras, you’ll still get the benefit from contemplating your right to desire things (2nd chakra).
What if it’s not what I expected?
We’ll spend about 25% of our time in discussion, 60% in individual contemplation during Yin Yoga, and the remainder doing other exercises like journaling or going over at-home options. If that sounds right to you, you’ll get what you expect.
What if I don’t find calm?
It’s the attempt to find calm, the effort to be in your body, that’s important. Achieving calm-on-command takes time. You’ll get the chance in these workshop sessions to practice your calm by quietly being with yourself, surrounded by supportive people, under gentle guidance.
What if I can’t do the homework?
What you get out of this workshop depends on what you put into it. No one is grading you. Maybe you can’t/won’t do homework. That’s fine. You’ll still get something out of the sessions, and you’ll have built your roadmap for future efforts.
