What are the chakras? What is Chakra Yoga? and how can I benefit by doing Chakra yoga?
Chakras is a sanskrit word that means spinning wheels of light. We are body, mind, and spirit, however we are also made of energy.
“Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality”-Albert Einstein
The Chakra system is a map of the human energy field.
There are 7 main chakras that relate to different regions, organs, nerve clusters, meridians, emotions, thought patterns, human consciousness, and like microcosm to macrocosm they also relate to time, space, geographic locations as well as human history and evolution.
The Chakra system is a fascinating system and tool used and integrated by many different cultures but specifically was born from Tantra/ancient vedic science. The chakras are said to be the 7 keys/map for transforming consciousness.
It is my personal belief in order to dance gracefully through life with a solid grounding, connection, strength, ease, power, love, joy, passion, and purpose we must be clear and in tune with our own energy field and our consciousness and in my opinion able to free ourselves as much as possible from our own blockages, self limiting beliefs, family and/or self created baggage, fears, judgments, energetic and emotional imbalances, self criticism, etc…
Once we empty/clear our body, our mind, of toxic thoughts, release energy stuck in the body, etc and become clear then we can then channel high levels of divinity/creativity through our vessel (human body for the soul) divine consciousness with ease and grace. We then become tapped in,
tuned in and life just flows. We are living the dream and dreaming the life we want into reality.
When we have strong and well balanced chakras we know who we are, know what we want, and go out there and make it happen from a place of feeling connected and grounded. We know our place in the world and are not afraid to make our dreams come true. We feel, speak, and express from a place of truth, love, beauty and spread love and light wherever we go. Because our human vessel is clear and vibrant we reap the rewards of vibrant health and our energy field vibrates at a resonant and loving frequency. We become in tune with our higher self and opening up our crown chakra naturally occurs and once our vessel is open we can then receive new ideas. When our mind is clear, our hearts open and we are tapped in, tuned in it then becomes clear what our true soul path/ life work is and the result is true joy and contentment.
True happiness and the feeling of being connected to a supportive and abundant Universe just naturally unfolds as a result. This is what I mean when I say change your energy, change your life. In this space one feels connected and knows they are the Rainbow bridge creating heaven on earth.
By now I’m sure you thinking to yourself….”That all sounds great and ideal but how do I get there?”
This is where I can help and this is my soul path/life work to help assist people to getting into the drivers seat of their own life. I use the Chakra System as a map to help create more awareness.
You can think of it like an incredible journey of self discovery. Like an onion there are many layers.
As soon as you feel you have arrived….there is another level of consciousness waiting to be unraveled and discovered. Like a thousandfold lotus…there are many petals and many layers to unfold.
I also love this analogy from one of my many teachers and very respected pioneers who brought the chakra system to the Wetern World,
- Our Body is the hardware.
- The Mind is the software.
- Our belief system is our operating system.
- Yoga is a tool.
- The Chakra system is a profound map to wholeness and to manifestation. They are also portals between the inner and outer worlds.
If our programs are not operating at maximum capacity or even some programs might be a bit buggy in that our personal reality is not matching the reality we are happy with or life is just not working out the way we want it too…For example you keep having reoccurring issues making relationships work and it feels your stuck in a loop, or you keep trying to loose weight but again and again you fail and fall back into old patterns, or you really want to feel confident but just cant seem to believe in yourself, or your own reality is not matching how others see you, or that people keep treating you with disrespect and your not sure how to break this cycle you seem to be stuck in…then it might be time to upgrade your operating system.
The hardware/software interface meet at the chakras and life force energy/prana within the human body is either flowing like a crystal clear river or are blocked, and when energy is blocked and not flowing this is when dis-ease can take place.
The journey through the chakras taught by Schamet offers us a path of self discovery. We journey step by step up the chakra system to become more aware so we can reach greater levels of awareness.The chakras is a system of integration as you can become more self aware and self diagnose,
Analyse, what is out of balance and then learn the tools on how and what to do to balance each chakra which then creates more space within the body and frees the mind.

This is what people are saying about Journey Through the Chakras:
“Schamet is an inspiration! After only the first base chakra session out of seven with Schamet, I have been inspired by her teaching and example to take control of my health and make healthy choices to improve my body. A month on from that 1st class, I am now feeling so much better. I have zest and energy I had forgotten I ever had, I have lost both my ravenous hunger and 8 KGS! I am going from strength to strength with Schamet by my side.
Thank you lovely Goddess for Being.”-Heather Main: Artist
“Schamet has a gift and a passion for sharing yoga. Her classes are beautiful and welcoming, and have been very healing for me. Time in Schamet’s studio is a wonderful balance to the busyness of the modern world, and I’m so happy I have found this little oasis!” -CM: Musician
“I have been loving Chakra Yoga with Schamet. I love the combination of philosophy, meditation, oils, sound and really loves Schamet’s authenticity. She really makes yoga
accessible to me and her story telling makes me feel at ease with who I am and inspires the direction I am going. I love her studio space as its feels like a very supportive community space where I can just be who I am and relax, unwind, feel supported, and uplifted.”-Alex Hills: Greenweaver Archetecture
“A couple of days ago I met up with a friend I hadn’t seen for a while and the first thing she said to me was, “your voice has changed. Its clearer, deeper , and your not wheezing like you usually do.” And then she asked me what I’m doing differently.
So I explained to her that I have been doing Schamet Horsfield’s Journey Through the Chakra classes and that we just finished the throat chakra class. I also told my friend that since the throat chakra class I felt I had found my voice and felt stronger in myself to use it.
My friend said she felt very inspired to try it herself. She is a musician and often performs in public speaking/singing.”-Heather: Author
“I am so proud of my mom. She is so cool. I loved doing her Chakra yoga class. I felt like I went on a real journey to a place where magic is real. I feel really good after and could feel all warm and happy when we got to the crown chakra.”-Octavius Horsfield: Age 10
