Spend the weekend immersed in the healing properties of the earth, water, fire, air, sound, light and consciousness. Learn how to integrate and awaken the inherent qualities of the elements within your sacred centers, revitalizing your chakras, and creating a greater sense of awareness and balance.
Rooted deeply in the discipline and traditions of the Sivananda Yoga practice, Chakra-Energetics, developed by Melinda, integrates the practices of Energy Medicine Yoga, Mudra Yoga and Chakra Yoga to create greater awareness and balance at the energetic level that manifests as healing in the physical realm.
