PRANAYAMA, MUDRA, AND SUBTLE ANATOMY APPLIED IN YOGA THERAPY 800-Hour Professional Yoga Therapist Program, Module 7


For yoga therapists of all traditions as well as medical professionals and holistic therapists with a solid yoga practice.

This module takes its starting point from the introduction to pranayama and subtle anatomy laid out in Foundations of Yoga Therapy Parts 1 and 2 and explores pranayama and the realm of subtle anatomy with more depth and breadth. You learn to navigate the nadis, chakras, and prana vayus of the body, as well as how to incorporate mudras in your yoga therapy consults.

Additionally, you are instructed in an advanced pranayama practice as it relates to the work of a yoga therapist. Course content is woven between didactic instruction and experiential practice so that you come away with a strong understanding in body and mind of the inner workings of pranayama, mudra, and subtle anatomy and how to work with each to assist with correcting imbalances at all levels of the koshas.

Through live instruction and guided practice, you

  • Understand the subtle anatomy of the body including but not limited to: chakras, nadis, prana vayus
  • Discern when and how to incorporate mudra into yoga therapy
  • Describe the history and evolution of practice of pranayama
  • Safely and effectively guide pranayama for yoga therapy clients.
