"We are so much more than our physical bodies; when we do the asana practice, we release samskaras from the physical body...but by balancing and moving into meditation, we can find balance in all of the chakras not only on an energetic level but also on a physical level. And that can be profound."
The course has been designed for anyone with an interest in learning more about the chakras; yoga teachers and advanced practitioners alike. We will explore each chakra through their physical, energetic and emotional component in relation to the energy in their corresponding region.
The course is non rigid and non-dogmatic in its teachings, and the theory combines elements of Hatha, Tantra and Ayurveda. The practical techniques are aimed toward helping balance over and under performing chakras.
Incorporating Meditation, Pranayama, Kriyas, Mantras, Yantra and Asana, this online course provides a deep understanding of the bio-energetics of each chakra and how they relate to the Vayus and one another. We will also look at the philosophy and the methodology they are embedded in.
Much like a physical journey, we will take you on an online yoga journey, from the slow and deep transformation of patterns stored in the subconscious through to balancing the Muladhara Chakra to working with the mind by balancing Sahasrara Chakra. The course will build on your existing knowledge of yoga concepts, and also includes techniques that are not commonly discussed in hatha yoga, such as visualisation.
As well as lectures, each of the seven weeks will incorporate an hour-long practice, through which you will be encouraged to investigate, open yourself to new concepts, and re-engage with your practice through the chakras in learning new practices. The course covers:
- Chakra theory and philosophy
- Energetics and the Subtle Body
- Tantra theory and philosophy
- Guided asana, pranayama and meditation
- Chakra Psychology
- Mantras and Yantras
The modules unfold week by week starting from the ground and moving upwards:
Week 1: Grounding
Week 2: Flow
Week 3: Awakening
Week 4: Understanding
Week 5: Vibration
Week 6: Integration
Week 7: Transcendence
What Will I Learn?
You will emerge from this course with a deeper understanding of how different physical attributes relate to chakras, what behavioural patterns signify overactive and underactive chakras, what to expect when we start balancing them and what a balanced chakra looks and feels like.
Whether you are a trained yoga teacher or a yoga practitioner, this course is ideal for expanding your existing yoga knowledge and immersing yourself in the rich world of chakra yoga.
Who is this course for?
Open to all yoga practitioners with an interest in learning more about the energetic body.
At the end of the course you will receive an online yoga certificate of attendance by Yogacampus which counts toward your CPD points as a yoga professional.
