What does getting “emotionally unstuck” mean?
Within our body we have spiritual-emotional vibration centers known as chakras. When we physically and mentally tap into these areas, we are able to balance them and allow energy to flow freely throughout our body. When you are unblocked in your internal spiritual centers, you will have a feeling of bliss- being truly natural and moving freely through life emotionally, spiritually, mentally, and physically. Conversely, when we don’t work to get our chakras unstuck we will often feel like life is a struggle and we feel unbalanced. Take a short quiz to see where you may be stuck emotionally within your chakras; either being under active or over active in the 7 major chakra centers. Chakra quiz “How stuck are you?”
What are the benefits expected from taking a one month intensive?
You will get a unique experience with each Adrenazen core class since no two classes are identical. The classes are taught in 4 week rotating cycles with each class focusing on one chakra center. Since we have 7 major chakra centers, attending 4 weeks consecutively will allow you to fully tap into each center and balancing them from under active or over active states. While attending Adrenazen core classes sporadically will have its own physical and mental benefits, on-going practice is where you will truly feel your spiritual-emotional chakra energy centers becoming unstuck and flowing more freely. And, you will see the body transformation sooner as well; an added perk.

Is there such thing as a healthy level of stress?
Have you have heard that New Yorker’s are the “most on edge as new survey’s reveal” New Yorkers and Stress? But there is good news– your body is designed to deal with stress. Your body is intelligent in that it has physiological responses to deal with stress; known as “fight or flight” responses. But, when you don’t have a full self-awareness of what triggers your stress in life; then you don’t know how to calmly act in such circumstances. And instead, you are prone to over-react and that is when stress is detriment to your overall health and wellness. Adrenazen activates natural adrenaline rushes (physiological fight responses) and then you also learn to quickly and safely return to a state of peace (physiological flight response). Through on-going adrenazen participation, you will increase your stress response self-awareness—learning techniques to cope with stress in the exact moment it occurs.
