Introduction to the Meridian Body

Hatha Yoga introduces the idea that Samadhi can be achieved by first working on the body and manipulation of energy. It is then important for us to understand the relationships between Body, Qi and Mind. In yoga, the body has multiple layers and Qi is one of the layers known as the Pranamaya Kosha. It is here that dwells energy pathways known as Nadis. Chinese named the same concept in terms of Meridians. In this workshop, you will be introduced on how to get into the meridians and what is most important for the meridians to flow. When energy becomes free, it can settle naturally within itself to allow our mind to be calm and still. Meditation happens naturally. Experience the freedom of movement and energy in this workshop.

Session II:

22 June 19 (Saturday)

14.30-16.30

Energy, Sound & Meditation

Every matter in this world is vibrating at a certain frequency and therefore produces sound. It is important for anyone who is keen on meditation to understand the concept of sound and how it vibrates within the body to bring grounding of the energy. When energy can ground and rest in its own place, the mind begins to gather its power of concentration effortlessly. Therefore, meditation is not about doing something, it is allowing one to abide within its own nature. To help us understand more of our inner sounds, you will be introduced of the Six Healing Sounds in ancient Taoist practice. You will be led from physical movement to meditation in stages to help you to abide within.

What is Yin Yoga: Yin Yoga is inspired by ancient Chinese Yin-Yang Theory to seek balance in Life. This state of balance and harmony is known as “Dao”.

Yin has many levels of understanding. In the body, it means the lower body, it also means deep and hidden aspects of the body such as joints and organs. In energy cycle, it looks at energy conservation and consolidation. In the mind, it means the highest potential yet to be known.

Yin yoga begins with a physical practice focuses on the pelvis, lower back, hips, knees and feet. Opening of the joints and releases of deep tissues are some of the key highlights of the practice. Each pose is being held with certain level of softness; without physical struggle for 3 to 5 minutes. This is a carefully designed practice where each pose targets the joints surrounding the pelvis to create space. According to yogic theory from both ancient China and India, the pelvis is the central power of the body. Modern science also confirms that this centre powers each human movement. Many names have been given to this space, the Indian calls this Kanda (the space of Kundalini), Japanese calls it Hara, Chinese calls it Dan Tien, modern anatomy calls it the Core (or intrinsic muscles of the abdomen and pelvic floor).
