This week BNW had the opportunity to speak with the woman behind Chakti and write a piece for Charlotte Magazine. Chakti, an alternate form of Yoga, was created by Lauren McAbee. Lauren is a yoga instructor and holistic life coach who insists that yoga class isn’t the only path to Zen. Upon interviewing Lauren, she confided in us with the profile of one newcomer who had been raped in high school. The individual had never tapped into her femininity as a result of violation, that is, until coming to Chakti. Read how Chakti changes lives in this article from Charlotte Magazine.
