Throughout the ages, people from around the world have acknowledged that subtle energy orchestrates all of life. Although modern approaches to yoga practice tend to focus on physical anatomy, the ancient sages of India were more attuned to energetic anatomy. We are unique vibratory beings, and awareness of energy can empower us to navigate life with greater ease.

Just as health is a reflection of unity, illness is a reflection of separation. From a yogic perspective, illness begins at a subtle level and ultimately manifests at the physical level. This course provides an overview of the Koshas as a framework to understand the various levels of being that comprise an individual. Balance and integration of the Koshas as a whole cultivates wellness while imbalance within the Koshas and a lack of integration results in dis-ease.

More specifically, this training explores the systems that play a specific role in regulating overall flows of energy on a personal level. The subtle body is composed of three main systems: the Nadis (energy channels), the Prana Vayus (energy currents), and the Chakras (energy centres).

Detailed theory is shared, however this trauma-informed course is largely experiential to promote embodied awareness of these concepts. Pranayama, Mudra, Mantra, and Asana, in combination with Integrative Restoration (iRest) Yoga Nidra Meditation, support the learning process. By liberating and consciously directing our vital energy, we can access new pathways to restore harmony within ourselves, with others, and with all of life.
