Subtle Anatomy Training
March 25, 2022$500
One the most profound insights of Yoga is that we have, and are, more than our physical body. In fact we have 5 bodies, or layers, that cover our pure self, or the light within. These layers are called the Maya Koshas – literally Maya (illusion) and Kosha (body or sheath).
The wisdom of the Maya Koshas provide an illuminating lens through which to understand the integrated nature of mind, body and spirit and its implications for balance and wellbeing, health and disease.
The 5 Koshas include the layers of the physical body, our thoughts and emotions along with states of higher consciousness and bliss. We also embody an energetic and rarefied layer of our being that illuminates, vitalises and balances our body and mind. This is our “Energy Body”, referred to as the PranaMaya Kosha, and it is home to our esoteric anatomy, which is the in-depth subject of this course.
We will explore esoteric anatomy in order to understand how Prana flow can foster balance, well-being, health and spiritual awareness, while obstructions in the flow can create imbalance in body and mind and initiate disease states.
We will cover:
The Nadis: a System of astral tubes that aid circulation and enhance the prana as it flows through the gross and subtle bodies. While there are thousands of nadis, three will our main focus, the Ida, Pingala and Shushumna.
The Pancha Maya Kosha: The five layers or bodies that encase the true self and how they function and nurture us on all levels.
The Seven Chakras: whirling vortexes of energy containing valuable information about the mundane as well as the sublime aspects of our every action and thought. Connected through channels (nadis) that flow up and down our spines, they infuse vitality and knowledge to every facet of our being.
On the last day of the course, Monique Lonner will discuss the associated modern maladies and the appropriate Yogic practices to enhance, balance and even heal each Chakra center and its related areas of body, mind and spirit.
With this new awareness we are able to use yogic practices to enhance, and balance our bodies, minds, and ultimately our lives.
