In this course we will approach the energetic body from multiple angles both theoretically and experientially. The yogis viewed the body not just from a purely physical perspective but also as a subtle, energetic perspective. The intention of this course is to explore how and why the yogis approached the body from this perspective and tie that into useful and practical applications for modern practitioners.
Energetic maps can be utilised as a portal into seeing the interconnected web of our body, mind and spirit. Energetic maps are a tool that we can use to hack the body and mind and catalyse profound transformation and healing. A portion of the training will be dedicated to practices that gradually aid in the opening of the individual capacity to perceive the energy body. We will review a variety of energetic maps; chakras, nadis, Chinese Meridians, Koshas and energetic fields as well as explore a variety of subtle energy practices from Indian, Tibetan, Chinese and modern energy healing systems of yoga.
As we familiarise ourselves with the energetic maps and theory we will weave discuss and apply these theoretical models and practices within the realms of mental and physical health as well as spiritual growth. We’ll look at how assessing our energetic body and clearing energy blocks influences our health and we will also explore how working on the subtle energy body was instrumental to entering altered states or mystical states for yogis. The course will be helpful to yoga practitioners, yoga teachers and healers alike.
