In yoga the deepest pulse of life in the body is known as the kundalini, a current of neurological force that flows through the central channel of the spine. The language of yoga describing the force (shakti) of the central nervous system bears close resemblance to contemporary research on the brain, brain stem and spinal cord. This course explores how yoga practice including asana, pranayama, yoga nidra and meditative states impact the vast neuronal assemblies in the brain. Through practice and study, we will see how light, image, vibration, loving awareness and finely articulated movement help rewire and heal the brain. We practice the SATYA movements (Sensory Awareness Training for Yoga) in order to generate more expansive and finely tuned brain maps. We will compare and contrast descriptions of the cranial chakras with lower (reptilian), middle (mammalian) and upper (neo-cortex) brains.
