Course description: What are chakras? Is there scientific evidence for their existence? How are they related to karma, to health, and to spiritual practice?  This course addresses theses questions.

Chakra Meditation: Chakra meditation focuses on moving our energy and awareness into our spine. This course focuses on two forms of chakra meditation: nyasa and pranayama. We will systematically explore these techniques while exploring the theories of chakra meditation and what is likely to be experienced by a practicing yogini.
