Living Well Through the Chakras 25-hr Immersion

March 9 -10 and April 13 – 14

Smiley Building, Room 20A

The chakras are vibrating wheels, or vortices, of energy that receive and distribute life force energy (prana) throughout the body. These vital plexuses of energy can fluctuate between states of under- and overstimulation, either of which may trigger physiological, psychological, or emotional imbalances if not addressed. You have the power to take control of your energetic body and foster optimal wellness. You need not change yourself, and you don’t need to be “fixed”, but you can adapt practices for daily life to cultivate balance. When the flow of prana through the chakras is in balance, we feel whole, even in the face of challenging health conditions or difficult life situations.

In this immersion, we will dive deep into the study of the chakras and the yogic tools that balance the energetic body to optimize wellness. The course includes a mix of lecture and practice, not only to learn about the chakras but to experience them first-hand. Ideal for yoga teachers and practitioners interested in deepening their yoga practice. You will learn how to create chakra-focused yoga classes or cater your home practice to balancing individual or all the chakras.

*Yoga teachers registered with the Yoga Alliance are eligible to receive 25 hours of continuing education credits after completion of the immersion.

Yoga for Grief & Loss 6-Week Series

Thursdays, 5:30 – 7:30 pm

April 4 – May 9

Grief teaches us that everything is impermanent. The more fiercely we love, the more intensely we grieve when a loved one is lost. Grief affects us physically, mentally, emotionally, energetically, and spiritually. Unfortunately, Western culture coaxes us to grieve quickly, to hide our grief, or to ignore it. Too often, our emotions become stuck in the body, and we need tools to remove blocks and to help us process our grief.

Yoga for Grief & Loss offers a holistic approach to healing from the loss of a loved one. Classes draw upon the principles and practices of yoga to regulate the nervous system, temper emotional reactivity, and cultivate spirituality. Each session incorporates movement, postures, breath, mudra, mantra, and meditation. No prior yoga experience is needed. You will be guided to witness yourself in your grief and you will gain tools to help you manage your symptoms. Optional journaling assignments and home practice help participants understand the complexities of grief and honor their personal journey. Small groups offer a safe and supportive environment. Yoga for Grief & Loss is a journey of the heart to help you accept your loss, process the pain of grief, reconnect with yourself, and return to wholeness.

Birdsong Yoga Therapy strongly recommends waiting at least 3 months after a significant, death-related loss before participating in the series. 

The series will meet in the Smiley Building in Durango, CO. Pre-registration is required. Location details will be provided upon registration.

Investment: $247*

Spring Reset Chakra Tuning

Sunday, April 21

11 am – 3 pm

At Yogadurango

The chakras are vortices of energy that receive and distribute life force energy (prana) throughout the body. When the prana is flowing in and out of the chakras in a balanced state, we function at our most optimal. However, the chakras are often in an imbalanced state which influences our physiological, psychological, or emotional well-being. The practice of yoga influences the flow of prana in the body and in turn, the state of the chakras.

In this special class, we will explore yogic practices that direct the flow of prana in and out of the chakras to cultivate balance in the energetic body and promote optimal wellness. The practice will incorporate asana, pranayama, mudra, and mantra that can be modified to meet all levels, from the beginner to the seasoned yoga practitioner. The workshop culminates with a lengthy relaxation and harmonium sound bath.

Cost: $33
