There is also a workshop for participants who want to learn the basic theory of Chakras (energy vortices) and how to channel this energy.

She was graced to spend over 25 years as a monastic disciple with the world renowned Yogiraj Sri Swami Satchidanandaji, receiving his direct guidance and teachings.
