CHAKRA JOURNEY: SOUND MEDITATION AND MOVEMENT with Shaamaahs, Ann Blackburn, and Dan Blackburn

“If you want to find the secrets of the Universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration.” – Nikola Tesla

Join Shaamaahs, Ann & Dan as they lead you through a journey through your energy body to connect with your Self. Sound, meditation, mudras, mantras, pranayama, and movement are all ways to balance the energy/subtle body.

Our energy system vibrates at multiple frequencies. The sound meditation helps our Chakras “oscillate” with an external sound catalyst. The seven major Chakras and Universal OM have their own individual frequencies/notes and the Sound Meditation is designed to connect in that way. The Chakras are an intricate energy system that communicates with our bodies endocrine and nervous system. This experience can relax, improve health, and give you the opportunity to connect with your wisdom Self.

Ann & Dan Blackburn are co-owners of Tula Yoga & Wellness. They are excited to work with Shaamaahs to bring this work to the Tula Community.

Learn more about Shaamaahs and his work:
My path to creating this sound meditation began 30 years ago as a drummer/musician in the Minneapolis music scene. At a very young age I was always aware of a meditative space that was obtainable while performing with musicians. This meditative space was the catalyst for inward exploration through practice and theory. The importance of developing the tantric/energy body in coordination with yoga and meditation opens up new doors for inward exploration. This involves working with raising internal energy and developing the human ability to “oscillate” with a external sound catalyst. The sound meditation I’ve developed uses esoteric “drone” instruments involving matched octaves singing bowls, Kargyraa throat singing and a Shruti box to create a oscillation catalyst using unique acoustic instruments in natural ratio tunings. It took 3 years of acquiring, and practicing techniques before being able to create this music. The significance of these tunings are all around us and within ourselves and the key to “sympathetic resonance”. This I felt was the path that was calling to me. The desire to explore inwards and reach the true teacher within us all is experience and sharing this experience. The goal of these sound meditations is to simply perform and provide a meditation that has the potential to relax, improve health, and/or obtain “Trance Meditation” states. – Shaamaahs

What wisdom are you bringing with you from the dark of winter? What are you awakening in yourself? Night and day are in equal balance at the time of the Spring Equinox. Spring is the season for the liver and gallbladder meridians which are associated with liver, gallbladder, eyes, blood, tendons and ligaments, anger, frustration and courage. Opening through these meridians can lead to health, vitality and contentment.

Join Brianna for a two hour long Yin and Yoga Nidra practice that will help to clear the stagnate chi from the mind and the body. Use this humble and nurturing practice to welcome your body out of hibernation.

Yin Yoga is a soft, still, deep and nurturing seated practice. It goes beyond stretching the muscles. It opens and creates space in the body while cultivating elasticity in the fascial system. Through this practice we will create space in the mind and body that will allow the unfolding of a fertile spring.

LAYA YOGA OF CHAKRAS | FULL-DAY INTENSIVE with Indu Arora

  • Date: Saturday, April 28th 2018
  • Time: 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
  • Cost: $125.00
  • PRE-REGISTER here

Laya Yoga is the journey of alignment, healing and dissolution of the chakras in order to rise to a higher level of awareness. Chakra sadhana is a part of Laya Yoga.
Chakras are not fancy or interesting or mystical things, they are factual zones of awareness. We simply need to sharpen our instruments with which we perceive them and we have to stop fancying them as mystical things
In order for our mind field to attune with the chakra mind field, it is important to choose the subtlest aspect of chakra, which is nada/beeja mantra/sound. Every sound when it reaches a certain octave becomes syllable form, the geometric pattern and the color of that field of energy. For example in Muladhara chakra the sound “lung/lam” becomes ( ?? ), square at the mandala level and triangle at yantra level, yellow at the frequency level.

In this full day Intensive meditation we shall focus
– Meaning of Chakra, adhara, padmas
– What is Chakra Sadhana and laya Yoga
– 6 main chakras and its beeja (seed sound), mudra, mandala (geometrical shape), tattva (element) and nadi/s (energy channel), marma
– Chakra Nyasa: Tantrika practice of chakra divination
– Short Chakra dharana as per Vijnana Bhairava text.
– ?ha?-chakra-nirupa?a- Dharana of the six main chakras

Pre-requisites: None
Suggested Tool for deeper learning: Mudra book (can be purchased onsite, amazon or yogsadhna.com)

Date: Saturday, April 28, 2018, 9am-5pm
Price: $125 or $160 with Mudra book
** Chakra malas and bracelets shall be available for purchase onsite.

Indu Arora, Ayurveda and Yoga Therapist based out of USA. Her teachings are deeply rooted in her philosophy: ‘Nothing has the greatest power to heal, but Self.’ Author of Mudra: The Sacred Secret and Yoga – Ancient Heritage, Tomorrow’s Vision books.  www.induarora.com

Rooted in a Toaist philosophy, Yin teaches us how to slow down, to honor stillness, to access the deeper parts of ourselves where we can tap into our innate wisdom. It provides us with an opportunity to balance an ‘activeness’ (or yang) of everyday life. When we practice yin we are working with the connective tissues in the body as well as the energy body. It promotes suppleness and health while boosting the immune system and removes stagnant energy and blockages from the energy body. Deep stretches are held for several minutes at a time with the support of bolsters, blocks, and blankets.

In this Yinshop you’ll gain a deeper understanding of the foundation of the practice through readings and discussion on the topics below followed by an extended practice that touches on the body’s major lines.

· Toaist philosophy

· The Chinese Medicine Meridian System

· The Science of our Body’s Fascia

· The Chinese 5 Element Theory

No experience with Yin or yoga necessary. Great for beginners. Modifications for all bodies. Register early, this workshop will be capped at 18 students.

Chair Yoga Intensive: Strong Spirits Mindfulness & Movement Program with Jes Rosenberg

Did you know that the baby-boom generation is turning 65 at a rate of 8,000 people a day and expected to almost double by 2030? There is a huge demand for Chair Yoga movement based wellness services. Join Jessica Rosenberg, who’s materials have been studied and researched by the University of Minnesota, Center for Spirituality and Healing for an interactive and educational Chair Yoga – Breathing & Movement Intensive.

The 6-hour workshop is packed full of practical tools to become a qualified Chair Yoga teacher – poses, breathing exercises, games, and relaxation techniques – for you to create infinite number of engaging classes. We will also be discussing many topics from the benefits of yoga fitness in a chair, anatomy, body-mind connection, and props.

At the end of the course you will come out with an abundance of knowledge and creative ideas to teach with.

YIN AND YOGA NIDRA FOR THE SUMMER SOLSTICE with Brianna Darling

  • Date: Friday, June 22nd 2018
  • Time: 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
  • Cost: $30.00
  • PRE-REGISTER here

Join Brianna Darling as we move into summer (warm weather, gardening, sports, road trips, outside activities) slowing down becomes essential. This day is summer’s height, midsummer, the longest day and the shortest night of the earth’s solar year. Here we celebrate the completion of the cycle that began at the winter solstice. Solstice means “standing of the sun” and we can connect to this great turning point in the earth’s yearly cycle by taking a moment to stop, be still, and look back at our own unique journey.
Yin Yoga is a soft, still, deep, and nurturing seated practice. It goes beyond stretching the muscles. It opens and creates space in the body while cultivating elasticity in the facial system. Through this practice we will create space in the mind and body that will keep us energized through summer. No experience with this style of Yoga required, it is a very friendly practice that welcomes all. Come as you are.
