More about this workshop: Your chakras are dynamic energy centers that connect your physical body to your subtle energy body which in turn interfaces with the world around you on many dimensions. Your chakras regulate and energize various parts and organs of your body depending on their location. They dance and twirl in circular motion. In this workshop, we will be introducing each of the seven major chakras, their main functions and a movement that helps to activate and balance each. Just as our bodies were made to move, so do our chakras.

Part of Omega’s year-long 40th anniversary celebration, the Movin' With the Spirit workshop series features fun-filled and diverse one-hour movement workshops led by members of Omega Dance Company. Take pleasure in experiencing contemporary, salsa, ballet, African dance, holistic healing, and much more, all taught from the perspective that we should celebrate the many marvelous and varied ways our bodies can move. Each teacher has years of training and teaching experience in their field of expertise. Come join the fun and learning, and boost your creative energy and spirit! Students of all abilities are welcome; attend one class or the whole series.
