Yoga Teaching Inspirations - Chakras

The chakras are subtle energy centers throughout the body that reflect emotional feeling in physical manifestations.

This course contains the following audio lectures:

1) Chakras

The chakras are subtle energy centers throughout the body that reflect emotional feeling in physical manifestations.

2) Root Chakra

The root chakra is where we find our sense of being grounded. When it is imbalanced – when we are away from home literally or metaphorically – we need to find practices that bring it back into balance.

3) Second Chakra

In this energy center lies your ability to create anything in the world. It is both the center for creativity and procreativity, meaning it balances our sexual and creative energies.

4) Third Chakra

This third chakra is the seat of the ego. How do we use ego when we teach? How can we separate it from our yoga practice?

5) Heart Chakra

The heart chakra is all about our ability to express ourselves in the truest, deepest, most love-filled way possible. Channeling this chakra in our classes allows our students to feel openness and expansiveness in their bodies and in their heart's centers, their true norths.

6) Throat Chakra

The throat chakra holds our ability to communicate clearly and honestly with our students and allows our students to communicate honestly with themselves.

7) Third Eye Chakra

The Third Eye chakra represents wisdom and how we can draw upon it as teachers.

8) Crown Chakra

The seventh and final chakra represents the goal of the journey as we move through the different levels of consciousness.
