Workshops - Studio Shibui



Instructor: Barbara Dametto
Nov 23    1-4 pm
Suitable for all levels

This 3-hour long afternoon workshop will focus on the ancient Hindu chakra system and how it relates to yoga.

The word “chakra” means spinning wheel and in yoga, refers to the 7 distinct energy centres that run along the spine from the tailbone to the crown of the head.

In this class, we will learn and practice asana (poses) and pranayama (breath-work) techniques to stimulate, strengthen and balance each of the 7 energy centres. We will also learn about the psychological and physiological associations for each chakra centre. Hand-outs will be provided and other resources will be shared such as books, videos, guided chakra balancing meditation and original music (available for purchase).

Suitable for all levels but some previous knowledge of yoga will be helpful. 12 students maximum.

Barbara Dametto received her 500 hour Yoga Teacher Training at the Pyramid Yoga Centre in Thailand. She has been teaching chakra yoga for over 10 years and Hatha yoga for 20 years.
