Strengthen Your Container with the Chakras

with Karla Helbert, LPC, E-RYT 200, YACEP, C-IAYT
Price: $125.00

Discover the power of your sacred energetic centers, the chakras, to help you strengthen your emotional container and move through life-altering, painful events. Explore your chakras with guided meditations, visualizations, journaling, art, movement, and sharing with like-minded spiritual seekers. This program is for people who are facing challenges of all kinds, including grief, trauma, and loss.

Designed to support you on your personal journey toward a natural state of wholeness, this online workshop will assist you in exploring the deep wisdom held in your energetic body.

In this program, you will:

  • Learn about your chakra system and how each energy center is impacted by traumatic events
  • Practice techniques to strengthen and maintain balance of your energy body
  • Engage in ritual to acknowledge divinity and strengthen conscious connection with your chakras

The ultimate teaching of Yoga is that you are whole and perfect as you are, in pain, joy, peace, and grief. Our chakra system works to support that realization and helps us maintain balance through even the most chaotic of times.

Live sessions with Karla on Saturday and Sunday at 10 am–12 pm and 3–5 pm ET.

The main program sessions are live and all sessions are in ET. The live sessions will be recorded and posted to the Online Programs access page if you are unable to join us live for that session. Recordings* are usually posted within one day and are available to program participants and presenter(s) only.
*You're welcome to turn off your camera if you don't wish your image to be recorded.

You will have access to the video recordings for 8 weeks after the program ends, until March 28.

In addition, you will have access to the Ashram’s Live Hatha Yoga classes at 5 pm ET, recorded Ashram meditations, and inspiring talk with Sri Swami Satchidananda. You will also have access to an online social community to connect and communicate with other participants about this course

Continuing Education (CE) Opportunities


Karla Helbert has a total grasp of the chakras and grief and is an outstanding presenter. The materials she hands out are outstanding. She has a big heart and an inspiring spirit. This class has been one of the best of the many I have attended at the Ashram. — James Jones

This was such a wonderful program! Karla offered such a safe, warm atmosphere that allowed all of us to connect so well. Sharing this material and experience with a group our size was such a profound way to learn and continue our practices. — Jodi Farley

Karla is the BEST at what she does. She helps so many people who are living with pain. — Past Participant

Karla has been a Godsend. She is a lovely compassionate person and a bereaved parent herself. I've come to realize I had mild PTSD for months after my son died. Flashbacks, anxiety, nervousness. I kept reliving moments of his last months. It's only now that I am remembering happier moments of his life before cancer. Karla helped me identify the trauma and how to lessen it. — Marsha
