Delight yourself by becoming aware of

  • The esoteric nervous system (nadis)
  • The seven mystical chakras at the emotional and physical levels
  • How the chakras function interdependently
  • How freeing the energy affects our emotional and physical health and well-being, from simple ailments to life-threatening diseases
  • Practices include pranayama, meditation, chanting, mudras, elements, colour, sensory awareness, service to humanity, movement
  • The effects of Yamas and Niyamas on the chakras


In every human being there are dynamic energy centers, the chakras. They contain valuable information on the material and more subtle aspects of every action and every thought.


Ascending and descending energy channels connect the chakras between themselves and connect vitality and knowledge with every aspect of our being. When the channels are open, the energy flows unhindered and you feel healthy and strong. Daily stress reduces energy flow, which can lead to laziness, anxiety, depression or even illness.


With this new understanding, one can balance the body and the mind with the fundamental practices of yoga, and even relieve symptoms of disease. It opens up a new approach to holistic health.


Actions, thoughts and self-understanding are essential to health or illness. Here, body consciousness and breath consciousness combine with mental consciousness.


Together, common concepts of modern civilization are examined. Are they avoidable or inevitable? Through self-observation old mental processes and energy patterns can be resolved.


When simple techniques are practiced with a more refined consciousness, they can lead more deeply into the power of the soul, where the source of holistic health lies.
