The Online Art of Haṭha Energetics – 121 eStudy Module One
– Vitalize your Energy Understanding Nāḍī Prāṇa Agni Cakra Bhūta

This particular Module One consists of nine 121 live video meetings to facilitate a personalised approach and in-depth transmission between teacher and student.

It introduces the student, through an online teaching dialogue, to the primary principles and essential teachings from T Krishnamacharya and TKV Desikachar within the Haṭha texts.

“Whilst Prāṇa circulates in us, we live, and when it goes, we die.
Prāṇa is responsible for different functions in the body.
Prāṇa expresses itself in everything that concerns life.
there is an important question to be answered.
How does Prāṇa penetrate the different areas of the body?”
– Quote from ‘Concering the Cakra’ by TKV Desikachar

We will explore how they inspire and guide our personal Yoga Sādhana, as well as our Yoga teaching. The module is complete in itself and offers a sound overview of the core principles of Haṭha Yoga as a Sādhana.

What are the unique advantages of Online Yoga Practice and Theory eStudy within a 121 meeting between Teacher and Student?

– Quote from ‘Concering the Cakra’ by TKV Desikachar

These fundamental aspects can also be further developed through the Haṭha Energetics Modules Two to Three Personal Sādhana Courses. Here the focus will be primarily on four ancient or contemporary texts on Haṭha Yoga. Each module will focus on an in-depth exploration of two Haṭha Yoga texts.

The Online Art of Haṭha Energetics Module One Professional

Even though the Haṭha Yoga teachings developed in the Art of Haṭha Energetics Modular Courses can enhance any Yoga Teachers professional skills in the fields of Yoga Psychology and Yoga Therapeutic Healthcare, there is no requirement to teach or to intend to teach Yoga. This is not the role of the course.

The role of this Course is not to train students as Yoga teachers although the Art of Haṭha Energetics Course will obviously enhance any Yoga teacher’s skills in the area of Yoga Psychology and Yoga Therapeutic Healthcare.

In fact, not everybody wants to or actually needs to become a Yoga teacher to further their practice and study. Here the priorities are towards personal development and thus questions relating to our personal practice and study are the priorities. These Courses reflect this viewpoint.

“Abhyāsa, when performed with reverence, without interruption, over a long period of time, will result in a healthy body, acute senses and extraordinary alertness.”
– T Krishnamacharya

The aim is that we are all here in this course as students and it offers an opportunity for all teachers to step back from their teaching role and re-enhance their personal study and practice path.
