Balance Your Core Energy: Yoga for the Chakras

2-day weekend

  • Aug 30 – Sep 1, 2019

During this retreat you will: 

Badri demonstrating asana poses
  • Explore the unique qualities of each chakra,   and how to work with them in everyday life
  • Practice yoga postures and other techniques to positively affect your chakras, attitudes,  and awareness
  • Take home a yoga routine to awaken your chakra energy
  • Learn a meditation technique given by Paramhansa Yogananda
  • Release stress, find peace, and enjoy deep inner relaxation

Within our astral, or energetic, spine are the seven centers of energy, the chakras—through which energy can flow either outward through the senses and activities, or inward and upward for spiritual awakening and personal growth.

Badri teaching At The Expanding Light Retreat

During this special weekend course with Badri Matlock, you will enjoy focused practice of Ananda Yoga® to help you awaken the energy in the chakras. In one short weekend, you can be profoundly recharged and uplifted.

"In yoga practice, the meditator offers his Kundalini up to the devas, or powers, residing in the chakras, that all his energy may flow up the spine toward unity with God in the sahasrara (thousand-rayed Lotus) at the top of the head."

- from the Essence of the Bhagavad Gita by Paramhansa Yogananda

Physical ease and harmony are only the beginning. You'll feel the real power of the chakras as you learn how to work with your “core energies” and with your mind to:

Yoga to Awaken the Chakras
  • Release energy blocks and old patterns of behavior that have held you back
  • Overcome moods and build emotional stability
  • Awaken the true power of your heart
  • Infuse new vitality and versatility into your strengths
  • Develop unshakeable happiness and calmness
  • Deepen your own natural spirituality

Gyandev and Diksha McCord will lead you through a practical, down-to-earth 3-day weekend, showing you how to build “core strength” in every aspect of your life: from your outer, everyday life to your inner, spiritual life.

Activities to help you to help you harmonize and awaken the chakra energies will include:

  • classes
  • discussions
  • yoga postures
  • guided self-analysis
  • breathing exercises
  • meditation

You will be guided and supported throughout this weekend, so that you may grow and develop your personal skills in a safe environment.
