Join Mother/Daughter Team Karen and Katie Carola for a 6-week Prenatal Yoga Through the Chakras series. Pregnancy is a time when women are more open to growth physically, emotionally, and spiritually. By taking the time to address the chakra system, that expansion and growth is naturally encouraged and enhanced. This series will explore each chakra with its corresponding pregnancy and feminine issues and teach specific asanas and pranayamas designed to clear and open each energy center. When the chakras are open and flowing, health and balance is improved.
