Join Chris Calarco for Pink Floyd Yoga on Friday night at Yoga Union!

Pink Floyd are masters of polarity. They created terrifying and beautiful music that narrates the universal human experience. Similarly, the internal and external practices of yoga require you to confront your deepest fears while also inspiring you toward your highest creative potential. Exploring one’s entire self means diving into the dark side and celebrating the light of gratitude and love.

Chicago, IL

Friday, October 12 – Sunday, October 14th

Join Seane for this special weekend workshop at Moksha Yoga where you will explore beyond your bodies into your relationship with the divine.

Transformation begins when you understand there is no separation between the mind, body and spirit – appreciating the inter-dependency of all moments, great and small, light and dark as whole and sacred. The chakra system provides us a roadmap that affirms this perception and presents a formula to make it tangible. Understanding the chakras and recognizing them as a bridge between the physical and metaphysical bodies can provide you energetic and intellectual tools for healing. Using the chakra system correctly, you can identify , reconcile and heal restrictive emotional patterns and physical imbalances in your mind/body. In this class, you will use the tools of asana, meditation, reflection, intention and prayer to facilitate this inquiry and to understand the dynamics of the charkas so as to empower your health and life.
