Gentle Yoga and Chakra Visualization Meditation

To Change Your Perspective

Seeing things from different perspectives allows you to discover new and more effective ways of dealing with the situations and relationships in your life.

It can be challenging to view situations from different vantage points, however doing so enhances objectivity and helps you to understand yourself, others, and the world in new ways. When this happens, you are better able to find creative solutions to problems and lead the life you truly desire.

The sixth chakra is the third eye point located between the eyebrows. This is the energy center of inner and outer vision, perception, insight, and intuition. This third eye can see and perceive what the other two eyes are not always able to.


In this workshop, we will explore the qualities of the sixth chakra and practice techniques that invite you to look inward to gain new perspectives about yourself and your life.

You will be guided through a gentle yoga sequence designed to open your third eye center and support you in seeing things in new ways. We will then practice a chakra visualization meditation to further expand your vision and views by opening and balancing the energy centers within the body. 


Join us for these transformative practices and learn how to change your perspective and navigate through life's challenges with greater awareness and ease.



Join us for this nourishing practice and cultivate a deeper sense of gratitude for the many blessings in your life.

When: Sunday, March 7, 2021
Time: 3:30pm to 5:00pm ET

Fee: $20

Gentle Yoga and Mantra Chanting Meditation

Rest. Rejuvenate. Restore.

In this workshop, you will be guided through a gentle yoga sequence designed to calm the body, clarify the mind and open the heart. When we feel calm, clear and open- hearted, we live life more fully, with a sense of purpose and joy. Following the yoga practice, you will be taught how to chant mantras to more easily enter into a meditative state.

The word mantra comes from the Sanskrit word “manas” which means “mind”. By chanting Sanskrit or Tibetan syllables, we are training our mind to stay focused, while at the same time elevating our energetic frequency. 

Some of the many benefits of chanting mantras include:

  • purifies negativities from both the conscious and unconscious minds

  • increases focus

  • elevates your mood

  • reduces high blood pressure

  • improves memory


The workshop will close lying down in a supported relaxation pose.
This workshop is suitable for all levels, no experience is necessary.
I hope you can join us for these deeply nourishing and supportive practices.
