What is the secret of the chakras and where does the energy flow?

To answer this question, we have to first understand prana and the nadis. In Sanskrit, prana means “vital energy”. It is the energy responsible for all of our life experiences – both physical and spiritual. The nadis are energy pathways that transport prana throughout the subtle bodies. A bit like subway lines, the nadis carry the prana through the body. According to yogic philosophy, chakra means a central wheel where the nadis converge.
So they are like prana subway stations, where different lines meet and cross. The prana that moves inside of us is constantly flowing and circulating, and at the points where that prana meets, this movement is even more intense.

What you will learn in this course:
– Learn more about the prana vayu through yoga sequences, kriya, mantra, yantra, pranayama, concentration and meditation

Yoga – the union of what?
Yoga is often described as meaning „union“ or „integration“. The first use of the word is found in the Rigveda (circa XV century BCE), where yoga literally meant the yoke one placed on an animal to yoke it to a war chariot or plow. By extension, yoga has come to describe a means of uniting or a method of discipline. It is both the goal and the path that takes us there.

In this 10-week course, we will investigate yogic systems of philosophy, self-transformation and salvation and the many forms they have taken throughout history. We will look at the origins of key terms like karma and samsara, and explore the evolution of the concept of „Yoga“ – starting from Vedic India, travelling through the philosophical expressions of Classical Yoga, Hatha Yoga and Tantric Yoga, and arriving at the medicalisation and globalisation of Yoga as we often find it in the modern age.

Anyone who is interested can join, no previous knowledge necessary.
