Meridian Yoga Online Course

Learn how to work with the energetic pathways that connect mind, body, and emotions

About this course:

Meridians are the energetic pathways through which “energy” or “vital life force” (known as prana in Yoga, and chi / qi in Traditional Chinese Medicine) flows through the body.

Meridians have been studied & used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for thousands of years to treat physical & emotional symptoms, boost immunity, and improve the function of the body’s inner organs.

Many report that with the help of the meridian system of TCM, they have been able to heal ailments which they did not solve with Western medicine alone.

This is possible because the meridian system is an “integral” or “holistic” system – it brings awareness to the deeper connections between meridians, energy, inner organs, and emotions. Rather than looking only at the symptoms of disease, the meridian system allows us to find and heal the deeper causes.

This course combines knowledge from Yoga, Reflexology (Acupressure), and Modern Neuroscience for a holistic understanding of the Meridian system used in TCM, massage, and natural healing.

What’s amazing about this course is that, not only is Ananda (the teacher) a long time practitioner of yoga, she also has a background in medical education. She is one of very few people who has studied both modern Western medical studies as well as the ancient Eastern traditions. She has worked with Tantric massage and trigger points for many years, and has made the connections on how it all comes together.

The course is a huge advantage for anyone working with the human body – in massage or body therapy, or even just for self- treatment, so you can understand how to achieve better balance in your own body. You learn how to connect information from many different schools & traditions, from someone who has really studied and used them.

In this course, you will learn about:

  • The relationship between inner organs, meridians, hormones & emotions
  • How “emotions are stored in the body” – especially in the inner organs
  • The effect of meridians & inner organs on mood, energy levels, & hormone secretion
  • The cycles & rhythms of the body – including hormonal secretion & predominant activation of inner organs throughout the day
  • How to become more aware of your meridians & inner organs
  • How to identify energetic blockages and possible hormonal imbalances
  • How to restore states of health, boost immunity, & regain emotional stability using Meridian Yoga exercises & acupressure points

I am amazed how much more powerful and direct the effects of these techniques are especially in the combination with accupressure, asana and meditation.

It’s absolutely magical to me. I clearly sense which organs I am in contact with in the body, and many energy currents are aroused.

It awakens in me, too, a great deal of self-care and gratitude for the functions of the body. I have come close to my bodies and embrace their ability. It feels very beautiful and special.

I have opened to a new level of consciousness, I now have more knowledge and I am very grateful for that. It is a powerful tool that I will definitely enjoy in the future.

Thank you for sharing this knowledge.

Anyone interested in holistic health & natural healing

Traditional Chinese Medicine has been studied and praised for effectively healing diseases & common ailments.

Even medical professionals & students can greatly benefit from studying the connections between ancient Eastern traditions and modern Western medicine.

I am trying to get better at administering Tantric massages on my own. Often when I get massages or I massage a woman who is a more experienced tantric masseuse, the talk falls upon nadis or meridians. I wanted to learn about them.

Originally I thought I was just about to learn about meridians for the benefit of the organs, but now I am using the other notions in order to know which organs to work with both in Meridian Yoga but also in Hatha Yoga.

I like that there are notions that connect organs to emotions, ailment, attitudes, and so on. And that I can introduce all this into my massage practice.
