In our astral, or energy body, the astral spine is the channel through which our life force flows. Within the astral spine lie the seven centers of energy, the chakras, which send energy outward for daily activities—or redirect energy upward for spiritual awakening.

During this special weekend course with Annapurna Lacour, you will enjoy a focused practice of Ananda Yoga postures to help you awaken the energy in the chakras. In one short weekend, you can be profoundly recharged and inspired.
