Exploring the Chakras: An Urban Day Retreat with Katie Laferriere

This full-day workshop is all about the chakras, the 7 wheel-like subtle energy centres in the body, each with their own meanings, qualities, and symbolism. Part urban retreat, part training, this workshop is designed for students and teachers alike. We will explore each of the chakras through lecture/discussion as well as embodied practice, diving into their meaning, symbolism, and associated elements.

Give yourself an entire day to learn about the chakras and to experience their magic through nourishing practices (including movement, breathwork, and meditation). Then you will be able to take this theoretical and experiential knowledge and integrate the chakras into your practice and/or teaching. They are balancing tools that can be incorporated into your personal practice and daily life, and for yoga teachers they can also help to inform your teaching, providing inspiration and an effective lens through which to plan your classes.

Learn how to weave the chakras into your sequence, theme, music, and setting, for a truly immersive experience.

A delicious plant-based & chakra-inspired lunch will be provided. A printed workbook is included, just bring a pen, a yoga mat, and an open mind!
