The Inner Light Bright: Chakra Tuning and Purification

The chakras are portals through which we perceive reality. We'll explore the attributes of each of these seven colorful energetic wheels from the root to the crown through mantra, asana, and high intention.
By energetically inhabiting each of these centers, we're able to address our karmas (past actions) and home in on possible root causes of our emotional, mental, and physical challenges. This practice has the power to instigate healing, ignite your inner light, and change your perception to make way for discovering your true nature.

From a Solid to a Liquid

In this special class you will be ushered through the 3 states of consciousness. We'll begin with a meditation in the waking state (jagrat), then slowly be guided into the deeper realms of the subconscious (swapna & sushupti), ultimately residing in what has been referred to as one of the deepest meditations of all, Yoga Nidra - often defined as conscious awareness of the deep sleep state.
This practice can help with something as imperative as relaxation to accessing and purifying your samskaras that drive our karmas (actions). Through this practice we have the opportunity to realize our true Self by altering our defined solid state to one that is flowing liquid grace of calm and clarity.

Turn On and Tune In To Your Frequency

The inner, sacred sound, Nadam, is fundamental to a yogi, as it's the most direct way to alter our physical manifestation. However, our mental fluctuations and anxious bodies present obstacles to that inner listening of our own vibration.
In this powerful practice, we’ll tap into the vibe that is our asana, mantra and mediation practice from an inner perspective. This humorous, yet humbling and potent practice will give you access to a wellspring of subtle insight into your inner pulsation.

About Giselle Mari

An Advanced Certified Jivamukti Yoga teacher and E-RYT 500, Giselle’s introduction to yoga in the early 90s was a natural progression from her gymnastics/dance background, her passion for music and being raised by a bohemian flamenco dancer; all of which have influenced her style and approach to teaching and life.

Drawn to the Jivamukti Yoga method, she began her extensive study with her gurus Sharon Gannon and David Life who she joyfully assisted throughout the western U.S. for almost 5 years. She has had the honor to serve as a mentor on the Jivamukti Yoga Teacher Training faculty and will be co-facilitating the 300-hr Jivamukti Yoga Teacher Training in May of 2016. Studied in Yin yoga as well, she appreciates the potency of this practice and enjoys coalescing these two powerful methods to create a visceral balance positively influencing how we see ourselves, and the world.

Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, Giselle has brought her dynamic, spunky and grounded teaching to yoga studios, festivals and conferences around the globe. Her classes are infused with funky music, Sanskrit chanting and delicious hands on assists. Her style fuses ancient teachings with modern living allowing a depth of experience for all practitioners. She’s appeared on the cover of Yoga Journal and Yoga International Magazine as well as being featured in many of their articles. She is also featured in Kathryn Budig’s book “The Big Book of Yoga” and Linda Sparrowe’s “Yoga At Home”. She’s written for Origin & Mantra Magazine and Yoga Journal Magazine, is on the advisory board for The Art of Yoga Project and a teacher on YogaGlo. For more information visit her website.
