Energize Your Practice
Join us for Energize Your Practice: 21 in 31, the 5th installment of our annual challenge to dive more deeply into yogic practice and philosophy, and endeavor to complete 21 classes in the 31 days of October. This year we are exploring the chakra system.
Each of the 7 chakras are charged with their own unique qualities ranging from colors, symbols, totems, and sounds to psychological and emotional presentations. Often described as vortexes of energy, chakras can become stagnant or blocked, thereby not transmitting the vital energy upward to the next chakra. From root (pelvic floor) to crown (crown of the head) the chakras are arranged in order from basic earthly survival needs to Divine universal connection. “Opening” the chakras in order is thought to be the path to enlightenment. This organization is mirrored by Maslow’s Hierarchy of needs, established in 1954. We will appreciate the psychological and emotional implications of the chakra system as it correlates with contemporary psychology. As the chakras also relate directly to physical nerve plexuses in the body, we will access and stimulate the chakras via the omnipresent tool we have of our very own bodies!

What you will learn
We will spend four days on each chakra, exploring details ranging from superficial and universal (Day 1 - Symbols) to deep and personal (Day 4 - Off The Mat). Peek the breakdown below.
On The Mat
Off The Mat
On this day, indicated on your calendar by the chakra’s icon, you will explore each chakra’s associated:
Seat In the Body
It is through our five senses that we can interact more personally with the chakras. These can also be seen as useful tools to balance chakras - stimulate them, or observe when they are out of balance.
We’re talking mat practice on this day, familiar territory - poses, postures, asanas (AH-suh-nahs). You will notice that our whole team will make a concerted effort to speak to the relevant chakra throughout its four days to help you find the connection in your own bodily experience. Your “On The Mat” pages in this manual will help define this more.
In the final days of each chakra we will explore how balance and imbalance may manifest in our behaviors and life choices by appreciating existing research which correlates the chakra system with contemporary and popular psychology.
You will also be provided questions and journal prompts to explore the concepts for yourself.
What is a Chakra?
Pronounced CHOH-kruh, these are energy centers in the body. Different systems of philosophy utilize varying numbers of chakras. In yoga we often refer to 7 chakras, as will be the case for our collective journey this month.
