Magic: Shift your Perception

Turn your world upside down. Inversions are the maha mudras “great seal ” of the asana practice, they
provide the opportunity to alter our perceptions. Using props and some partner work, we will explore
various inversions with different tools, approaches and practical supports that allow for all levels of
practitioner to have the experience of downside up in a safe and supportive format.

Chakra Tuning


In Yoga tradition, the human body has seven main energy centers called chakras. Taking an empowering
approach to purifying the chakras, we’ll move through a series of poses sequenced according to the
chakra system.
We will explore the attributes of each of these seven energetic wheels from the root to the crown utilizing
mantra, asana and high intention. By energetically inhabiting each of these centers we are able to address
our relationships (with our parents, family, partners, everyone around, as well as our teachers and our
own selves) and hone in on possible root causes of our emotional, mental and physical challenges. This
practice will instigate healing and a change in perception to make way for discovering our true nature.
“When chakras are blocked through injury, illness, or disconnection from others, we are blocked from
being our best selves. Rooted in ancient teachings, Chakra Yoga is more relevant today than ever. At a
time when many people feel disconnected from themselves and others, it can heal your body and free
your heart to move into the future with joy.” Sharon Gannon
During this 2 hour Jivamukti Yoga workshop, we begin with a short discussion and then explore these
seven doors of perception, using asana, pranayama, bija mantra and other meditation techniques.
