Even though not acknowledged by western science, we yogis believe that Qi/Prana is our live energy and that it flows in our body through channels we call meridians. For a yogi or eastern practitioner, meridians or nadis are just as real as our blood transport system, our nerves and our lymphatic system. Even though we can’t “see” the meridians and measure our Qi, we can learn how to feel it.

What you will learn

In this course we learn about the 12 main meridians, their relationship to our organs, what the different types of Qi are, how the 5 elements work and what the meridian clock is. As well as how to apply this to your (yin) yoga practice, how to use some of the main acupuncture/acupressure points and we look at pulse and tongue diagnosis.

To get a good understanding of the location of our meridians and how to apply meridian stretching in your yoga practice it is necessary to get a good understanding of our anatomy, so this too will be an important part of this course.

In this course:

  • Anatomy of the human body
  • Location and tracing of the meridians
  • The five elements
  • Meridian clock
  • What is Qi
  • Meridians and the organs
  • Acupressure points
  • Meridian stretching
  • Pulse and tongue diagnosis
  • Daily yoga asana class and chakra-nyasa meditation
