The chakras evoke mystery, an artistic imagination and connection to the subtle body. For each of us, the chakras are unique centers of physical and psychic energy. In this specialized course we cover the anatomical structures that correspond to each chakra beginning with the tailbone and leading to the crown of the head. You will learn the muscular-skeletal, organic, and glandular association within each chakra. This course details these vital energy centers along the vertebral column that houses nerve bundles thought to be “small brains”.
In addition, we investigate the emotional and spiritual quality of each chakra. We investigate ways to strengthen each chakra as well as the causes of deterioration within each chakra. Learn the energetic and emotional vitality that pertains to each vital energy center. We refer to the dynamic polarity in hatha yoga of the sun/moon, male/female and shiva/ shakti. We will look at how the five elements (earth, water, fire, air, and space) and the yogic "winds" (vayus) pertain to each energy center.
In daily practice, we activate each of the vital energy channels through asana, sound resonance, visualization, hand mudras, and meditation. In this course you will identify the chakra that is strongest for you and the one that is most vulnerable.
This course includes a rich array of iconographic images from the yogic tradition in order to describe the subtle body along with anatomical images that provide insight into the anatomy of each chakra. Tias brings his background in Buddhist studies, Sanskrit, yoga philosophy, dreamwork, Indian art, and mystical anatomy to this unique course on the chakras.
