Learn how to work with the chakras through the practices of yoga, and how these practices can gradually transform us at all levels.

Chakras are us! And that is why it’s a very good thing to know more about them and about how to work with them for our benefit. These centers of energy and consciousness are the foundation of every aspect of our being, and they map out our journey to fulfillment and enlightenment. Take an in-depth look at the chakras—the symbols that represent them and the ways in which the chakras underlie our physical, energetic, mental, and emotional functioning and our evolving consciousness.

In this 7 hour digital course, you will learn about:

  • How the chakras are intertwined with prana (active energy), kundalini (dormant energy), and the koshas (sheaths covering our pure being)
  • The chakras' relationship to the spine, endocrine gland system, and senses
  • Key concepts: prana shakti, apurva, kundalini, karmashaya, and more
  • Asana and pranayama practices to strengthen and integrate the body, reshape prana, and activate energy at certain chakras.
  • How the chakras shape our emotions and how meditation can help us bring balance to our emotional life and instinctive urges
