Root & Throat Chakras

From sleep to weight to fertility, your thyroid manages it all. The adrenal glands are also absolutely vital to your wellbeing.

From sleep to weight to fertility, your thyroid manages it all. The small butterfly-shaped gland located in your neck pumps out hormones that play a key role in how your body functions. The adrenal glands are also absolutely vital to your wellbeing. We each have two of them, and they play a hugely important role in producing the hormones that we need, particularly during times of stress.
Join Carla, yoga teacher and Homeopath, for a workshop where we will learn yoga, breathing and lifestyle practices that will help us to strengthen the thyroid & adrenal glands. We’ll learn how to empower our Root & Throat Chakras to balance and rejuvenate this important part of our glandular system. We’ll also discuss lifestyle modifications including diet and specific exercises that along with the yogic practices will increase our vitality and strengthen our ability to respond to stress. Offered just once a year!!
Cost: $57 + gst.

BE THE LIGHT

Saturday April 1, 2017
12:30 to 3:30 PM at Chinook Yoga in Prince George, BC

“Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness.” ~ Desmond Tutu

Be The Light

Many of us are feeling overwhelmed by world events and the seeming darkness that is trying to invade our lives. But maybe we can shift our awareness to embrace our inner light and become a beacon of hope and consciousness for ourselves and others. Together we can awaken and discover our authentic self, live our truth, elevate to love consciousness and illuminate the path for others to discover their light.
We will be using the Tibetan practice of Tonglen – where we breathe in the suffering of ourselves and the world and transform it on the out breath into recognition, compassion and light to all beings everywhere. The Dalai Lama uses this practice every day.

carla wainwright ho'oponopono peacemaker prince george
The practice of Tonglen or Giving and Receiving is done to develop our compassion and our ability to be present for our own suffering and the suffering of others. It is also a practice of great kindness that opens up our whole being to the overwhelming presence of suffering and our strength and willingness to transform alienation into compassion through the energy of mercy and the cultivation of openness
We will have a longer circular breath practice to allow ourselves to go even deeper into our conscious and subconscious so that we can bring all aspects of our being into our highest alignment.
Breath of Bliss is a catalyst for deeper self awareness and connection into the surrounding world. It is a journey that opens our hearts, awareness and helps us align into the truth of who we are. Each experience is unique and an opportunity to experience more freedom and aliveness within.
Other health benefits include:

  • Physical/Cellular detoxification
  • Emotional detoxification
  • Stress reduction
  • Mental clarity
  • Emotional wellbeing
