CHAKRA YOGA SERIES :: A Seven Part Exploration with Angelana Grant

Our Chakra Yoga Series is comprised of seven, 2-hour Friday night classes that are designed to ::

  • Deepen your knowledge and awareness of the Chakra System.

  • Realign and energize each Chakra using a guided meditation, specific yoga postures and Reiki treatment.

Did you know YOGA is one of the most basic and effective ways we have to balance the Chakras? Balancing and aligning the physical body through asana practice (yoga), also balances the subtle body and affects the Chakras, related behaviors, beliefs and habits. Reiki and meditation are additional tools used to connect to the essence of each energy center and clear away any impediments to optimal energy flow throughout the body. Empower yourself with tools and practices to improve your ENERGETIC HYGIENE by joining this series.

Angelana Grant is a licensed Esthetics instructor, certified Yoga Teacher, Doula and Reiki Master who brings all of her unique gifts and skills to be shared in this enlightening workshop…. You are in great hands!

Embodied Rituals :: Exploring our Sensual Energy with Jade Perry

Embodied Rituals are meant to help Black women – across the spectrum of sexuality, gender expression, & diaspora – who are unlearning toxic religious repressions of our sexuality and sensuality. These rituals incorporate healing practices (by various traditions of energy workers, herbalists, and intuitive wellness workers) with scholarship, readings, and creative art to help us explore the following:

  • What have we learned about sexuality / sensuality?

  • How do WE experience our own sexual & sensual energy?

  • How can we use the faculties of intellect, creativity, & spirituality to heal from sexually repressive norms & expectations?

More concretely, Embodied Rituals help us to move toward the notion that honoring our erotic, sensual, sexual selves is crucial to the well-being of Black women & Queer & Trans People of Color (QTPOC)  and is supported by the Divine – however we understand and interpret it. 

Salon Session 1 :: September 28, 2-4pm :: Exploring Our Sensual Energy
Key Text: “If I didn't define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people's fantasies for me and eaten alive.” - Audre Lorde

Salon Session 2 :: Date TBD :: Listening to the Intuition of the Body
Key Text: “We are taught that the body is an ignorant animal & that intelligence dwells only in the head. But the body is smart. It does not discern between external stimuli and stimuli from the imagination. It reacts equally viscerally to events from the imagination as it does to real events.” 

― Gloria E. Anzaldúa

Salon Session 4 :: Amplifying & Shifting Sensual Energy Pt. 2 | DIY Erotic Art Creation
