Esoteric Anatomy

& Kundalini Shakti

3 Classes, 9 Hours

This experiential immersion has been designed to educate Yoga Teachers on the esoteric anatomy of Yoga; the Nadis & Chakras, and offers practices from both Hatha Yoga and Classical Tantra which serve to potentialize a felt experience of Prana in the chakras.

This course also focusses heavily on Kundalini Shakti; as the dynamic, sacred power of awakened energy. This course aims to dispel common misconceptions about the awakening of Kundalini and cultivate a warm attitude toward this boon of  Yoga practice. 

This course is best to be preceded by the Prana & Pranayama Module, as it requires a foundational understanding of Prana, Kriya and Bandha. Additional sessions of asana, pranayama and meditation may be added to this schedule to further explore and embody this content.

 

In this course, I transmit the philosophy, practices and insight from my own personal journey with Kundalini through Hatha Yoga practice and Tantric initiation in India.
