Scanning the Chakras- class

From Ganesh B,:

I am looking for one more person to attend to satisfy the minimum number of 2 people for scheduling a “Scanning the Chakras” class. Chakras are energy centers in our body. Energy blocks in the Chakras prevent the flow of Prana, the life force needed for good health and vitality. Asanas have a direct effect on the Chakras and clear them of blocks. More details are below:
Instructor: Christopher Tellez
Location: SF Reiki center (I can ask Chris if he is willing to conduct in MTN view at one of our residences)
Date: flexible TBD
duration: 4 hours
cost: $100
Please contact Ganesh at ganeshkb1 at if you are interested.


In this 4-hour class, designed for beginners, you will learn to develop your natural intuitive abilities to help you sense a person’s aura and scan their seven main chakras with your hands. You will learn to determine how the strength or weakness you feel in each chakra relates to the health and emotions of the person you are scanning.

The chakras are wheels of energy spinning at thousands of points on our bodies. Chakras collect and distribute the energy of life which our bodies use to function. When any one of the major chakras becomes weak, the body will experience physical or emotional weaknesses with the corresponding chakra.  Over time this deficiency can develop into serious problems such as anxiety and fear.

In this class you will learn:

  • Sensitize your hands and feel the energy between your hands
  • Use your hands to check for general physical vitality in the aura
  • Use your hands to scan the major chakras and detect for strength or weakness
  • Interpret the emotions or conditions of each weak chakra you find
  • Perform a simple meditative visualization to help balance the chakras

Registration: $100

Sutra Discussion Sunday November 17

We’ll be meeting at 10:00-11:30 on Sunday November 17 in the “blue room” at YiY. Bring your translations as usual.

We plan to discuss sutras 2.51 and 2.52, the third and fourth sutra about the fourth limb of Ashtanga Yoga, pranayama:

Sutra 2.51: bahya abhyantara vishaya akshepi chaturthah
Then the breath transcends the level of consciousness. 

Sutra 2.52: tatah kshiyate prakasha avaranam
The regular practice of pranayama reduces the obstacles that inhibit clear perception.
