An introduction to each of the seven chakras residing in the subtle body. This segment highlights the physical, biological, emotional, & energetic significance of each chakra. Participants will learn how to incorporate this ancient wisdom into some of their asanas & teaching practice. Both Sanskrit & English terminology will be used to offer a complete view of the energetic chakra system from the ancient Indian Yogic perspective. Participants will also learn about how the flow of the Kundalini energy through each chakra affects the energetic and emotional body.
The human body is also known to have 72,000 nadis that help carry prana (energy) to each cell. Various asanas in combination with breathwork activate certain nadis. We will be exploring the main 3 Nadis : Ida, Pingala, and Sushmana, and how the cosmic force(Shakti) is able to travel through the spinal column through the nadis and unite with the Siva located in the crown chakra. This union at the energetic level, represents the grand union with one’s higher self.
Introduction to Koshas
Discover the energetic layers surrounding one's body, mind and spirit. We dive deep into the five Koshas or sheaths of our being in this segment and learn about the inner layers one by one through a deep visualisation technique. Travelling through these 5 bodies, the question of "Who am I" is addressed, along with a magical voyage of exploring our deepest energetic layers of wisdom.
