Subtle Body Anatomy



The subtle body system presents a holographic view of wellness from the Spiritual foundation to the tangible organs and related diseases in the human body.

The goal is to introduce practitioners to the vast dimension of the Subtle Body system, related therapeutic considerations and return to the mystery of yoga as therapy.

The subtle body includes and is not limited to: loka, agni, tala, mahabhuta, nadi, lingham, granthi, shakti, chakra, vritti, pranavayu and dosha. The training on these components and the related yoga tools are the foundation of PranaYoga’s yoga cikitsa practices. We will learn the subtle body with the intention of integrating the concepts into our work, yet address the outstanding physical issue the client brings to a session.

The students in the training, whether deepening your work as a yoga teacher, considering yoga therapy or entering a yoga therapy training, we will explore body as the silent communicator of the Spirit and know that when we address the physical body, we are also addressing the subtle body. Yoga teachers and therapists will be more prepared for reactions and responses from their students and clients as their yoga experience helps them unfold into wholeness.

This is the essence of “why yoga works!”
