Chakra Energy Body Upgrade with Wendy Billie: (NOTE: Series moved to Wendy’s home.)

Are you ready for an upgrade to your heart, your intuition, and to the rest of your energy body? Then this class series is for you! Join me as we energetically weave through your unique chakra system. Chakra means “wheel or circle” ~ that spiral of innate subtle force that serve as guides to your emotional, physical, and mental harmony.

Each session, we delve into a chakra yoga class; moving, breathing, and receiving spiritual wisdom as you boost the sparkling vibration to your chakra energy. Classes are great for everyBODY. Be ready to dive into the deep ancient wisdom of You. Maybe you’ll learn to levitate since you will feel so light and rejuvenated. 🙂

If you need to miss a class (not to worry), the beauty is that the chakras intertwine with each other, so you will still gain valuable high vibe upgrades. Each class we will be upgrading 2 chakras…the last class includes the 7th chakra and the ethereal body (that incredible cosmic connection to ALL)! Wow!

THIS IS NOT HELD AT THE CULTURAL CENTER. Class series moved to Wendy’s Ottertail home.
