Chakra Healing Class
Sep

to Nov 2

Chakra Healing Class

This is an 8 week experiential/healing class that meets once a week on Thursdays from 7-9pm starting September 14 until November 2. Each week will delve into all the information on one chakra starting at the base of the spine to the crown of the head, 7 chakras in all.




This class is equal parts teaching, experiential learning, creativity exploration, ceremony, movement, and circle discussion.


Participants will learn the energy of each chakra, as well as the thought patterns and emotional properties of each chakra. Discussions will be deep and personal. I will genltly encourage vulnerability to allow your wounds to be shown in order to shift the energy of the wound and heal.


I will teach you how to ident...ify when your chakra is off balance and how to bring the chakra back to balance through energy healing techniques, movement, oils, crystals, journal exercises, and meditation. We will not only explore the chakra, but also the healing properties of the crystals and oils that are related to each chakra.


Each week you will go home with a crystal that corresponds to the chakra we learned about as well as a packet of notes that will further your learning.

This is by far my favorite class I teach and I am beyond excited to offer it again.
Payment plans are available and a check can be mailed in order to avoid paying the online fee. Please reach out to rootedandopen@gmail.com to set up one of these options.
Early bird pricing is $125 until September 1. After September 1 the price increases to $150
This class is limited to 12 women.

Mama Nurture Circle

Mama Nurture Circle is a weekly circle that meets for 8 straight weeks from 7-9pm. Each week we explore different topics from relationships to self-care and everything in between. This is for mothers in any stage of parenting who are looking to gain a deeper connection to themself and other mothers. This circle fosters deep connection, vulnerability, truth, and awareness.
What does a circle look like?
When in circle we all put our attention on one woman, and we will explore what her experience is like, essentially getting into deep relationship with what is most true and alive for her.
The experience of being seen for who we are is one of the most fullfilling experiences we can have. Being in circle teaches us exactly that­, how to see and celebrate each woman for the uniqueness she brings to the world.
We don’t give advice or try to fix anyone. Rather, we welcome and stay with what is so we can relax into the truth of our experience, feel supported, know we are not alone and allow the experience of this to change us.
Investment: $100 for 8 weeks.
-Babies welcome to join
-Space limited to 10 women
-Payment plans available, please email rootedandopen@gmail.com to set up

TRE (Trauma Release Exercises)

TRE ® (Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises) helps to restore balance to the body by releasing deeply stored tension. This approach will help you to manage and release the effects of stress in your body which in turn positively affects your life.
In TRE we use a series of exercises that are gentle and if needed can be modified for any body type or restriction.

A short description of TRE by Jessica Schaffer from trepdx.com
"TRE ® activates a self-controlled, muscular tremor reflex which is the body’s natural way of re-establishing balance by discharging energy stored in the nervous system. This tremor reflex originates from the Central Nervous System and moves deep in the core of the body, spreading from the legs upward along the spine, slowly unwinding muscular holding patterns from the sacrum to the cranium. Because it is a body-based release, there is very little emotional or cognitive process that is stirred by the practice. So it is a safe and gentle way for the body to process held stress and trauma without re-triggering uncomfortable memories."

Please bring a yoga mat and wear comfortable stretchy clothes.

Mama Nurture Circle

Mama Nurture Circle is an 8-week circle for mothers in any stage of parenting. It is an opportunity to deeply connect with yourself and a community of likeminded women. Each week we meet we will explore a different topic like; relationships, birth, fear, motherhood, etc... through meditation, journaling, and discussion.
This circle fosters a space for truth to be shared in a supportive and non-judgmental atmosphere. Women who join are making space to discover deeper parts of the self that are ready to be seen and healed. This circle is more than a circle, it is a community of women who show up to be seen, be vulnerable, be heard, as well as listen deeply to all parts of herself and others in the circle.

Circle runs every Sunday 7-9 pm from February 5- March 26 at Shanti's healing space.
This circle is limited to 10 mamas. Your spot is saved once you have payed your deposit.
