Awakening the Chakras: A Spiritual Yoga Retreat

With David Seybert and Miriam Rodgers

July 20 - 22, 2018

The practice of yoga has a beneficial effect on more than the physical body. Yogis also recognize the existence of a subtle energy body, which plays an important role in our mental and physical health and our spiritual development.

The most important features of the subtle energy body are the 7 energy centers (chakras) which are located in the central channel (sushumna) of the energy body.

In this retreat*, we will:

  • explore the connection between the chakras and our psychological and emotional states
  • use yoga asanas and pranayama to direct energy upward in the sushumna and awaken and stimulate the chakras
  • become aware of how the chakras and sushumna act as a “memory bank” for our mental habits and thought patterns
  • learn how to transform negative habits and thought patterns into positive spiritual qualities
