The Nei Jing Tu is a symbolic painting of the subtle energies that flow through the human brain and spine.  It also illustrates several yogic techniques that are used to control the mind and experience deeper states of spiritual awareness.

If you would like to learn more about the Nei Jing Tu, and preview part of the content of this course, visit and and click on the link to ‘A Yogi’s Guide to the Nei Jing Tu.’ Read through it to see if you resonate with this approach to pranayama/breathwork and meditation.

This course will explore the seven chakras, and the six basic techniques of the Nei Jing Tu.  If you are curious about things such as mulabandha, uddiyana bandha, khechari mudra, and pranayama/breathwork, this will be a very rewarding course.

Each day we will have three meditation sessions.  In these sessions we will systematically explore the chakras and the six basic techniques of the Nei Jing Tu.  With patient repetition the student will become comfortable with these slightly intimidating techniques.

Each day will include yin-yang asana practice in the morning, and yin asana practice in the afternoon. We will experience first hand how asana practice relieves the stresses and stagnation of sitting, and augments the practice of meditation.
