Introduction To The Chakras and Esoteric Anatomy
Stepping Up In Your Yoga Practice By Stepping Deeper Inside Yourself
The Introduction to the Chakras online course will kick-start your exploration into your energy, or pranic body within oneself. Designed for Yoga Teachers with already a basic understanding
The pranic body - the home the Chakras - is a vast subject primarily because each and every aspect of who one is - physically, emotionally, and mentally can be attributed to the balance or imbalance of a chakra(s) within the body. This course will give you the foundation in knowledge and is a recommended pre requisite for our Advanced Chakra Immersion held at the Ashram and aboard multiple times a year.
This course covers the basic characteristics and functions of each Chakra, including but not limited to:
What each Chakra “looks like” in its personality both in potential, balanced, and shadow properties as well as deficient and excessive states;
What emotions and mental qualities are expressed within the frequency of each Chakra;
Which Asanas (physical yoga postures) stimulate and open each energy centre; and
Includes meditation to help locate each Chakra so you can start to tap into the subtle energy of whirling wonders within.
Includes a quiz at the end of each Chakra lecture to help you learn the attributes and qualities.
