Movement, Meaning and the Creative Healing Power of the Chakra System

Beyond our visible, physical selves, our bodies emit invisible layers of energy. The densest part of our energy system is the chakra system which resembles a chain of interconnected energy centers.

“Chakra” is from the traditional Indian system of medicine and means “spinning wheel” or “vortex.” Our bodies express seven main chakras. The chakras are aligned with the center line of the body from the top of the head to the base of the spine. Our chakra energy is filled with the information of consciousness. This energy flows in, out and throughout our physical bodies and as it moves it interacts and influences our physical selves and our health.
Our bodies are constantly speaking to us through energetic shifts in the chakra system. These shifts can often be felt as physical sensations. We can create powerful personal relationships with our chakra system by tuning in to these sensations and discover what our chakras are telling us. Through meditation, visualization, sound and creative movement, we can build a body/mind bridge to this invisible part of ourselves.

Once created, we can use this new awareness to enhance our lives in many ways. We can listen to what our energy bodies are telling us and make connections between our thoughts, our health and life situations. We can also empower ourselves with enhanced intuition and open ourselves to abundance. Most importantly, knowledge of the chakra system is extremely valuable as the basis for a powerful active creative healing practice. Knowledge of the chakra system can vitalize yoga & other body/mind practices as well.

Louis became inspired to work with the chakra system through his mature yoga practice and career as a professional dance artist. Chakra Balancing is the culmination of many years of research in somatics (body/mind training), eastern philosophy and transcendent dance practices.
