Exploring the Seven Chakras
Exploring Root, Sacral, Power, Heart, Throat, Third Eye and Crown Chakra.
This course explores the seven chakras:
1) Exploring the Root Chakra
The root chakra encompasses our base and creates the foundation upon which we stand. When we can stand up for ourselves and be grounded in a safe and secure existence, we can walk proudly in our life. This mini-class creates the foundation for the first chakra to be balanced, rooted and grounded through strong standing poses.
2) Exploring the Sacral Chakra
The sacral chakra is the seat of our emotions, creativity and relationships. By allowing our creativity and passion to have an outlet, this chakra flourishes.
3) Exploring the Power Chakra
The power chakra illuminates our ego and self-identity. When we learn to use who we are to shine light on the greater good and more fully allow others to be themselves.
4) Exploring the Heart Chakra
The heart chakra is the seat of compassion, kindness and unconditional love. When this chakra is balanced, we are able to create lives that resonate with kindness and friendship toward others.
5) Exploring the Throat Chakra
The throat chakra is the center of all our communication. In this day and age, when communication happens through voice, email, text message and tweets, it is more important than ever to create clarity and compassion in our messages.
6) Exploring the Third Eye Chakra
The third eye center is known as the "command center," or seat of our highest self. It is with wisdom and intuition that we are able to perceive the world without boundaries or separateness. When we can find the sameness in all the things around us, then tension and judgement dissolves. This is a wonderfully compassionate way to live, and we cultivate this strength in this mini-class through breath work and some guided meditation.
7) Exploring the Crown Chakra
The crown chakra represents our connection to a higher power. By enlivening this energetic center and reconnecting to source, we are infused with power.

She is anti-dogmatic in all things, and her love of science confirms her spirituality, rather than negates it. Alanna’s vision picks up where Joseph Campbell left off — to empower people to connect with and embrace their humanness.
