REAL LIFE CHAKRAS

REAL LIFE CHAKRAS with AMANDA FULMER

DATES: Tuesday October 2nd
TIME: 6:30 – 8:00pm
COST: $24

Do you know the basics of the chakra system but don’t really feel chanting the seed mantra and coordinating your crystals to red is opening your sacral chakra? I feel you. I as well went a long time without fully understanding the chakras, how they work and what that meant to my life. Come to this workshop, 100% lecture no asana, and find out how to use this ancient energy management system in ways that will impact your real life. In other words, if you are constantly drained, fatigued, sick of being tired and tired of being sick, come see where you are losing power and how you can get it back.

200 Hour Yoga Teacher Trainees with Yoga Alliance will be able to register this workshop for 1.5 contact hours of continuing education.
