Chakras and the Energetics of Yoga Teacher Training | IN STUDIO

25–28 June 2021 | with Caroline Shola Arewa

40-hour Training IN STUDIO

This four-day course, led by author Caroline Shola Arewa, can be attended as a stand-alone course or as an optional module on our 300-hour programme

Course Overview

Deepen your awareness and understanding of Chakras and the Human Energy System in our 4-day immersion. We will explore the powerful yet invisible force that was once considered, a secret of the initiated. Despite being invisible, energy pervades and surrounds your body impacting your mind and emotions every day. We speak of feeling low in energy, or drained. Today most of us have a sense of our energy or lack of. This energy was recognised and mapped into an in-depth system known as the Chakra System and what we can usefully call a Spiritual Anatomy.

Discover the various energetic fields, pathways and principles of energy that emerge in yoga, and are also found in martial arts and complimentary medicines such as aromatherapy, reiki and vibrational medicine.

In this course, you will develop a theoretical understanding as well as an intuitive felt sense and practical application of the Chakra System. Drawing on over 30 years as a Yoga Teacher, Psychologist and Somatic Therapist, Shola shares insights that will enhance your knowledge, as well as develop ways of working with energy and the Chakras and how to introduce some concepts into your classes.
