Chakra Chi: Root to Sky Yoga Workshop

Pauline Koinis

Pauline Koinis

On September 30 and October 1 from noon to 5pm, Pauline Koinis will lead the Chakra Clearing Workshop at Valley Spirit Cooperative and Wellness Center in Washington Depot. The process will include use of essential oils, crystals, yoga and meditation. The intent is for participants to come away feeling lighter, more joyful and full of love.

The word “chakra” has its roots in the Sanskrit language. The Hindus thought of the chakra as a wheel of spinning energy, or energy center, where consciousness resides governing various attributes of individual physical and spiritual aspects. The chakras are not physical but part of the “subtle anatomy”, or what you may simply think of as an energetic point of consciousness within the body where the spirit and physical worlds meet.

There are seven major energy centers, or chakras, with five aligned vertically along the spine and two residing in the head area. The base or survival chakra resides at the base of the spine and connects or grounds you to the earth. The crown chakra, at the top of the head, is not within the body, but in the “spiritual essence” serving as a gateway to everything that is Divinity, or God. The other major chakras are the sexual creativity chakra in the naval area, the emotional chakra in the solar plexus area, the heart chakra in the heart area, the throat chakra in the throat area, and the third-eye chakra in the middle of the forehead. Each of these major chakras uniquely influences various physical and spiritual aspects of your life.

Clearing the chakras is a process where perceptions and blockages stored within the chakras are transformed, lightening up the energy and making it easier to come from Spirit. The more you align with Spirit, the less you will judge and the more you will be in harmony with things and beings around you.

The cost is $25 per person. Pre-registration is required.
