Chakra Sadhana: An Experiential Retreat

Indica Yoga is offering a unique energy (soul) stirring opportunity to delve deeper within and explore the chakras. An opportunity to be with like-minded people to gain an inspiration to nourish the body, the mind and the spirit so as to allow a deepening faith in oneself.  A pause by stepping out of daily life and to have an opportunity to deepen the yoga practice and process to transcend one’s awareness from body consciousness, from thoughts(mind) to proceed within towards intuitive knowledge to self-knowledge.

Working with the chakras allows one to energize the subtle body, understand the mental and emotional blocks/conditionings relating to our personality and our life. It’s not about becoming a different person rather it is about training in awareness and getting a healthy sense of perspective. It’s not about turning off the thoughts or feelings, it’s about learning to observe them without judgement.  It’s not about gaining more or achieving more, rather it’s about letting go, it’s about releasing those imbedded experiences, it’s about acceptance without guilt leading to a better understanding of oneself and towards to silence and stillness, towards meditation.
