Breath-Centered chromaYOGA with Salvador Martinez
Taught by Salvador Martinez
Cost: $40 per class
Package of 7: $200
In Breath-Centered chromaYOGA with Sal, the feedback of yoga is the process of consciously integrating body, mind, movement, and breath and maintaining that awareness throughout the practice. In the yoga tradition, the principle of svadhyaya (self-study) is engaged with asana (postures). Students are guided and encouraged to maintain qualities of steadiness, alertness, and comfort as we move through various vinyasa krama (organized sequences of asana), paying particular attention to the ways in which our breath can affect our mind and our mind can affect our breath.
In this offering, you will experience the healing power of yoga and color therapy while immersed in the energy of 200 million year old healing salt. This 7 week program will also address the balancing of the 7 chakras through LED color changing salt walls and heated salt floors that release negative ions. A vinyasa krama will be associated with the corresponding chakra, supporting and welcoming a conversation of self-reflection and observation.
