Feel the Pulse: anatomy, asana and inquiry
with Swami Durgananda and Special Guest, Dr Carmel Crock
The universe beats like a cosmic heart.
The pulsation is on the macrocosmic level, in which it unfolds our universe,
holds it in place and then withdraws it after many millions of years;
and on the microcosmic level in which the same pulsation takes place in every nanosecond with the creation of every thought and the beating of the human heart.
Deepen your knowledge of the heart by exploring it through experiential anatomy and yoga practices. The physical body is pulsating energy. It is pure consciousness vibrating at different frequencies. Awaken the heart by bringing your awareness to it and learning about its form and function.
During this workshop we will be exploring:
- The anatomy and physiology of the heart
- The relationship between the physical heart and feeling
- Heart centred yoga practices
- Common cautions for people with heart conditions
This workshop will include theory and practice; it is designed for yoga teachers and dedicated students who wish to deepen their knowledge and explore the wonders of the human form.
