Why I started Chakra
Hi everyone! Nastassja here, founder of Chakra :)
I often get asked why I started Chakra and, for me, the answer is simple. It’s all about mentality. There was once upon a time (not too long ago) when I was freakishly shy and relatively negative. I couldn’t converse with my peers “normally” because I was scared. I was scared of being judged by anyone and everyone. I used to vomit on the way to school every day of 6th grade because I was so nervous about a plethora of things. And I was convinced that the average person was the opposite of nice. At the time, I blamed my feelings on my school and my environment, but I now realize it was all in my head. It took me 20+ years to recognize that your thoughts and words wield great power.
With this came the understanding that life is AMAZING. And beautiful, and abundant, and full of love and happiness, and that it’s meant to be enjoyed. But I also learned that this understanding is a choice. Life is a game, full of situations. It’s our reaction to these situations that determines our reality, our feelings, our destiny. I learned that pushing your body physically helps tap into the massive mental abyss of power that exists within each and every single one of us. It’s real life magic. I want everyone to know this and to experience this because it literally changed my life.
To me, Chakra is a place of inclusion, a place where everyone, no matter who you are, where you’re from, what you have (or don’t have), is welcome and, more importantly, supported. Chakra builds cheerleaders. Chakra builds love. Chakra builds higher levels of frequency. That is why I started Chakra.
