Join Dr. Rhoda Moise, PhD, CYT (she/her/li/ella/elle) on the mat for a seven-session Egyptian yoga workshop series to align your mind, body, and spirit using ancient wisdom of the chakra system and scientific understanding of the SPECIES wellness wheel. The ancient chakra system (known as aritu in Egyptian yoga) are the seven main energy centers of the body (i.e., root, sacral, solar, heart, throat, third eye, and crown). The modern SPECIES wellness wheel includes seven parts that encompass the complexity of well-being (i.e., social, physical, environmental, career/occupation, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual). By merging both soulful and scientific knowledge, this series comprehensively empowers you to live your healthiest life by helping you to increase awareness of the brain and body connection; decrease depression, stress, and anxiety; cleanse and condition the internal systems; and improve strength and stamina. Each workshop will focus on an integrated aspect of the chakra system and wellness wheel including related breathwork, postures, meditation, and mantras as well as insightful Egyptian mythology (e.g., story of Asar/Osiris, Auset/Isis, Heru/Horus) and theory-driven tools to reach your wellness goals. Participants are encouraged to bring a journal along the journey. Each session will include focus on the following:
