When we experience physical, emotional, mental, or energetic stress or trauma, any one of our chakras can become imbalanced or blocked, compromising the full spectrum functioning of our energy system. In Chakra Yoga Therapy Sessions Brooke uses her years of experience and knowledge of the chakras and Chakra Yoga as a thoughtful response to the specific needs of an individual in a therapeutic, one to one environment. It is a session or series of sessions designed with the intention to bring your physical body and your energy body back into balance and optimal functioning so that you can radiate your “full spectrum self”.
Brooke’s Chakra Yoga Therapy Sessions include:
CHAKRA BALANCING SESSIONS:
Your first Chakra Balancing Session with Brooke includes THE CHAKRA ASSESSMENT, a diagnostic protocol for determining the energy levels and inter-functioning of each chakra. This technique evaluates how well energy is moving through your chakra system and which of your chakras need the most attention.
Based on the information gleaned from your Chakra Assessment, Brooke designs a personalized therapeutic Chakra Yoga program to bring your chakra system back into balance and full-spectrum functioning. (Please note, this might take several sessions to achieve/incorporate this balance.)
These Chakra Balancing Sessions can be combined with a Sound Therapy component including crystal bowls, toning, tuning forks, and healing mantras and can also incorporate RESTORATIVE YOGA postures.
THE CHAKRA ACTIVATION SERIES:
In this series of 7 personalized CHAKRA ACTIVATION sessions we move from Root Chakra to Crown Chakra and dive deeply into one particular chakra per session. Clients learn and practice specific Chakra Yoga tools and techniques of pranayama, mantra, yantra, kriya, and asana to experience, energize, and explore deeply that aspect of consciousness in their physical, mental, emotional, developmental, spiritual, and energetic selves.
At the end of each session clients are given Chakra Yoga reference materials to support their personal practice.
These Chakra Activation Sessions can also be combined with a Sound Therapy component including crystal bowls, toning, tuning forks, and healing mantras and can also incorporate RESTORATIVE YOGA postures.
THE CHAKRA TUNE-UP:
The CHAKRA TUNE-UP is a single session “follow-up /check-in” for students and clients that have completed either the Chakra Activation Series or a Chakra Balancing Program in the previous 6 months. We begin with a CHAKRA ASSESSMENT to evaluate how energy is flowing and then we generate energy via various pranayama practices and move this vital energy up or down the spine, activating and balancing all the chakras during one session.
THE EMBODIMENT SEQUENCE:
In 2008, working in collaboration with Dinohra M. Munoz-Silva, M.D. Board Certified Child, Adolescent & Adult Psychiatrist, Brooke developed The Embodiment Program, a mind-body protocol specifically for Pervasive Developmental Disorder Spectrum, ADHD, PTSD, and other anxiety/mood afflictions.
The Embodiment Program was designed to help participants develop an awareness of their emotions and sensorial patterns, and gain new techniques for modifying these symptoms in order to down regulate problematic behaviors. This is achieved through attainment of auto-regulation of physical and behavioral patterns through body awareness, breath/ body synchronization, and focusing on positive, productive corporal movement.
The Embodiment Program is an 8-week socialization and awareness group program that teaches the progressive skills of relaxation, movement, focusing, and breath control, so that participants will learn how to:
*modulate and re-channel the discomfort associated with communication problems,
*decrease episodes of tantrumming,
*identify and modify behaviors that are preservative (physical or mental), and
*improve frustration tolerance during periods of transition.
Brooke continues to work with doctors and leaders in the Integrative Mental Health field, offering the Embodiment Program/Sequence to groups and individuals.
