Nāḍīs, Marmans and Hatha Prāṇa Yoga – Introduction to using the concepts of doṣas, of ‘energy’ lines and ‘energy’ points during a Yoga session
This worship introduces the concepts of psycho-physiological traits (doṣas), energy lines (nāḍīs) and ‘energy’ points (marmans). It is followed by a yoga session where the concepts are integrated into the use of āsanas and pranayama.
The outcome of this short introduction, theoretical and practical, is (1) thinking of Yoga as an application of a Metasystem (2) thinking of nuancing the asana in terms of activation of energy lines and energy points and (3) use of the breathing to further nuance the effects of yoga.
