The Neurobiology of the Subtle Body @ Kenilworth Center | Asheville | North Carolina | United States


In this workshop, we will look at the intersection of the subtle body and the nervous system – what Kaoverii calls the “7 Brain Model of Human Health.” Drawing from both ancient wisdom and contemporary neuroscience, Kaoverii will lay out a theory that integrates both the yogic and the scientific models, and guide you through transformational practices that can catalyze health and wellness.

If scientific materialism’s models of human health and healing were adequate, we would have good outcomes. But, in the U.S., we spend more than $3 trillion each year, 86 percent of which pays, not for cures, but to help people cope with chronic diseases.

Whatever you think causes a problem will determine how you address it; and whatever you think human existence is about will determine how you approach illness, health, and wellness.

The subtle body is the key to the future of medicine. It turns our materialistic thinking on its head and asks us to expand our perspective beyond simply the material to include the subtle, or vibrational as well.

In this workshop, Kaoverii will explain the neurobiologic counterparts and corresponding functions of the Tantric chakra system (as detailed in the Mahanirvana Tantra and the Sat Cakra Nirupama) and the neuro-endocrine system. You will learn practices to help create better balance in the nervous system, and the subtle body.

What You Will Learn

  • How and why the subtle body (chakra system) can be viewed as foundational to health and healing.
  • The intersection of recent neurobiologic findings and the traditional tantric chakra system.
  • Practices for influencing health via the neurobiologic structures which correspond to the subtle body.
  • How to integrate subtle body-oriented psychological and physiological practices to improve health and well being.

This workshop will include two yoga practices each day, plus lectures, discussions, and experiential exercises. All abilities are welcome. The weekend will also include Subtle® Yoga signatures: supportive community, kirtan and restorative practices. This is a great opportunity not only to learn about the latest science behind yoga, but also to improve your teaching skills, experience community with like-minded people, and earn 12 Yoga Alliance CEUs.

PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN PROPS! Which may include an extra mat because the floor is terrazzo.
