WORKSHOP: Embodied Chakras
Chakras are an ancient form of mapping for our inner experience. An illustration of our inward world, each chakra suggests a home for physical, emotional, and spiritual experience which is often hard to tie down or put into words. It is meant to be felt. Our workshop is designed to allow students to experience these inner reference points for themselves, through movement, sound, breath, visualization, meditation, and rest. Join long-time collaborators Sarah Capua and Stephanie Rooker for a deep practice you won’t soon forget.
Sarah Capua is a therapeutic yoga teacher, a student of Buddhism and classical yogic practice, and a caregiver. She is interested in how practice can help us live an embodied life, inspired early on by her initial training with Stacey Brass, her study of J. Krishnamurti, and her time at the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram and the Himalayan Iyengar Yoga Centre in India. She holds a 500-hour certification in the tradition of T. Krishnamacharya through her teacher Danielle Tarantola, studies meditation and Buddhist teachings with Michael Stone, and studied contemplative caregiving at New York Zen Center for Contemplative Care, where she serves as an end-of-life doula. She teaches in NYC and the Hudson Valley, focusing on the therapeutic applications of yoga and personal practice. sarahcapua.com
