Course Description

About this Course

Anatomy of the Chakras is not your average chakra course. Tias Little takes a deep dive into the richness of these vital energy centers. No matter how long you've studied yoga, this immersive course is bound to shed new light on the marvels of the chakras.

What does the word 'chakra' really mean? Chakra, literally meaning wheel, is an energy center in the body that can be accessed and balanced through yoga practices of asana, pranayama, meditation and mudra. The chakras evoke mystery, an artistic imagination and the healing power of sound as a means to get to know our inner selves.

Many traditions including Indian Tantra, Tibetan Buddhism, Qigong and the Kabbalah, share teachings of a 'body beyond the body' known as the subtle body. This energetic system can affect how we feel on a daily basis and can point out how our system aligns with obstacles in our life. By recognizing that there is more to the body than meets the eye, we can learn to move through life with ease and grace.

What's in this course?

Anatomy of the Chakras will surprise and intrigue you. This course covers, and then sails way beyond the common knowledge of color, shape, element and sound of each chakra. You'll learn the muscular-skeletal, organic and neurological aspects of each energy center as well as its totem animal, vital wind and emotional association. Because the chakras are influenced by states of mind and emotional holding, this course invites students to reflect on their own strengths and deficiencies within each chakra.

In the course you will explore

    • Explore the prime elements, color, sacred geometric design, sound and animal totem that correlates with each chakra
    • Practice sensing, feeling and mobilizing the anatomical structures of the chakras
    • Study the organs, glands, nerves and muscles associated with centers of energy
    • Identify the micro centers for physical, archetypal, psychic and spiritual energy
    • Discover the typical causes of deterioration and ways to promote health of specific chakras
    • Practice asana, pranayama, meditation and mudra sequences for each energetic system

Level

This course is for all students looking to elevate their existing knowledge of the subtle body to the highest level. Yoga students, yoga teachers, psychologists, meditators, artists and anatomists will each discover remarkable connections between the physical matter of the body and the vibratory nature of spirit within each chakra. This course investigates each aspect of the chakras and provides students with every piece of information available.

How long do I have access to this course?

You will have access at any time, no matter when you purchase it or begin the course, for the life of the course. The course and all included materials are accessible anytime and can be completed on your schedule, across computers and mobile devices.

Thus his teaching brings together precision of alignment, anatomical detail and a profound meditative experience. Tias is a licensed massage therapist and his somatic studies include in-depth training in cranial-sacral therapy. His practice and teaching is influenced by the work of Ida Rolf, Moshe Feldenkrais and Thomas Hanna. Tias is a long time student of the meditative arts and Buddhist studies beginning with Vipassana and continuing in Tibetan Buddhism and Zen. His teaching style is unique in being able to weave together poetic metaphor with clear instruction filled with compassion and humor.
