In this training, we explore how ancient concepts like chakras, karma, samskaras, vrittis and vasanas can be relevant to our personal development and well-being, especially in this modern world. The training is based on the philosophical teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda, Dr. Hiroshi Motoyama and Paul Grilley.
During this course, we practice different chakra meditation techniques, yin and yang asana sequences, and investigate the physical, emotional and mental characteristics of each of the main, seven chakras. We will also briefly review the main anatomical and philosophical principles that underpin yin yoga.
We dive into the theory of meridians, Qi and the five elements according to the TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) system, and consider their application in a (yin) yoga class.
In this training, we cover:
- The concepts of karma, samskaras, vrittis and vasanas
- Chakra theory
- Chakra meditation
- Fascia and meridian theory
- Meridian tracing
- Acupressure points
