The chakras are energetic wheels of energy that serve as the headquarters of each element in our body: earth, water, fire, air, and space. They have a profound effect on our physical, emotional, and energetic state. In this workshop, we will explore how the different chakras manifest and can come into balance through our yoga practice. Sarah will help you to create physical harmony through asanas, while Alan will share the tools of kriya and meditation to create inner and outer resonance. Find balance within yourself and with the universe, bringing clarity, wisdom, and universal intelligence into each moment of your life.

Yogiraj Alan Finger
South African Tantric and Kriya Yoga Master Alan Finger was recognized as one of the top 100 influential yoga teachers by Sonima in 2016. He began studying yoga at the age of 16 with his father Mani Finger and renowned swamis of the past century. Alan and Mani created ISHTA Yoga. ISHTA is an acronym for The Integrated Science of Hatha, Tantra, and Ayurveda, and also translates to “That which resonates with the individual spirit” in Sanskrit. The ISHTA style integrates breath-based flow yoga with alignment, meditation and healing bodywork. Before creating a home for ISHTA, Alan co-founded Yoga Zone, Be Yoga and Yoga Works. Alan has co-authored several books including Introduction to Yoga with Al Bingham and Chakra Yoga and Breathing Space with Katrina Repka. He is currently working on a new book Tantric View of the Sutras due out in 2018 with Shambhala publications. Alan travels the world to share his teachings. He currently lives and teaches in New York City where he co-owns ISHTA Yoga with his wife, Sarah Finger.
Sarah Finger is the co-founder of ISHTA Yoga, LLC and the private yoga teacher of Dr. Deepak Chopra. She has shared the elevating tools of ISHTA to the yoga community worldwide through trainings, workshops, and retreats which she co-teaches with her husband, Yoga Master Alan Finger. Sarah believes that the practice of yoga can be used as a microcosm of the reality we create for ourselves off the mat, and that a deeper awareness of our physical, mental, and emotional habits can both transform and empower us to connect to our most authentic self. Sarah’s passion for service and self-empowerment led her to join the Board of Directors for Exhale to Inhale, a non-profit organization that teaches yoga to survivors of domestic violence. Always a seeker, Sarah considers motherhood to be her greatest spiritual practice. Her daughter, Satya, inspires her to live a life based on love and unbound potential.
