The lower three chakras relate more to our external circumstances: Muladhara - our material reality; Svadisthana - our relationship to others; Manipura - our personality/ego which helps us navigate through life with confidence and self-assurance.

Workshop on the upper three chakras including theory, asana, chant and pranayama. The upper three chakras focus more on our internal world: Anahata (Heart) - our connection with and compassion for all living things; Vishuddhi (Throat) - our Truth: seat of karma and dharma and Ajna (Third Eye) - our insight/intuition. Sahasrara (Crown) is Mastery, the culmination of all 6 chakras from Matter to Spirit.
