Chakra and Fascial Release - Where Energy Meets Physiology

Event Date: 
Sunday, April 18, 2021

Sunday, April 18 from 2-4 pm with Nikki Martin and Tori Jarvis Grant - $40 plus HST

The Sanskrit word chakra refers to a number of energetic centres that exist in the body, with each center corresponding to a different level of power and consciousness and having unique properties. The chakra system is ancient, and its roots run deeply throughout yoga’s oral and written traditions. In this 2 hour workshop, join Nikki and Tori as they work to marry eastern and western philosophies to give you a greater understanding of how movement and release can impart a deep sense of both physical and energetic awareness, and well-being. This workshop is a combination of slow and deliberate movement, Myofascial release, and lecture. Props will be provided, but if you’d like to bring your own, 2 tennis balls and block are requested.
