Light Body Yoga™

Created in 2003, and officially founded in March 2004, by Shannon Port, Light Body Yoga™ seeks to gently awaken the Body of Light - the Feminine aspect of Truth that lives in every human heart.  Light Body Yoga has been warmly received by audiences around the world, and in New York City at Equinox Fitness Clubs, Exhale Spa, Clay, Reebok Sports Club/NY, Prana, Sports Club/LA,  JCC Manhattan and many more!

The practice of Light Body Yoga™  is made up of The Seven Portals of Light. The seven portals activate the Heart, Mind and Will to receive light from the Soul and Spirit. The seven practices are seamlessly woven together and applied to awaken the seven creative centers of light (known as chakras), with special emphasis placed on the Heart. It is necessary to open and activate these centers to their full creative potential if we wish to evolve our consciousness and claim the fruit of our destiny, which is to become a race of spiritual human beings.
