The Chakra Dhyana is a very powerful Spiritual Practice to awaken Kundalini, connect you with higher conscious, and clear and activate the 7 chakras. Using the Chakra Dhyana, we briefly chant the Bija Mantras for each Chakra. At the conclusion of the Chakra Dhyana the Oneness Blessing will be given. The Oneness Blessing is an energy transfer that initiates a neuro-biological change in the brain that connects us with spirit. It results in a growth in consciousness by creating a shift in the perception and experience of life. It is non-denominational; and awakens our connection with the oneness in everything, allowing each of us to deepen our relationship with ourselves, those we love, and with all that is.

Robin Debreceni (RYT200)was initially drawn to Sanskrit for its elegant calligraphy. After taking her first Intro class with ErikMarrero in 2014 she discovered there was much more to this language than its visual aesthetic. Exploring Sanskrit has enriched and informed her personal yoga and meditation practice. Robin finds great joy in sharing the beauty and resonance of the Sanskrit language and continues to pursue her own studies of Sanskrit and the Yoga Sutras through various workshops and classes. In addition
to teaching Level I immersion weekends for ASI, she teaches on-going weekly Sanskrit classes at Trishula Yoga in Collingswood NJ and assists in curriculum development for ASI.
