Chakra StudiesMANCHESTER – Manchester Community College
Building on Balance: Chaka Studies – DORY DZINSKI, LPC
The body is composed of many systems, for example, the respiratory and pulmonary systems. But are you aware that the body is also regulated through an energetic system? There are 7 main chakras that act as the main energetic life force centers of our bodies. When they are in balance, life is easy and effortless. When they are not, life can be challenging and it may feel like you are swimming against the current. This series presents many aspects of each energy center, how to tell if you are balanced, and numerous exercises to bring yourself back into balance. Many handouts on each chakra are provided.
