Yoga: Chakra Tuning • 7:15 - 8:30 p.m. (75 minute practice)
In yoga, chakras are seven wheels of energy throughout the body from the base of the spine to the crown of the head. Chakras help to regulate all of the body's processes from organ function to the immune system and emotions. When the chakras are balanced we experience our greatest sense of health and well being. This practice will include breath work, movement and meditation and is suitable for all body types. Bring a yoga mat if you can, a few will be available for loan.
