Nourish Your Mental and Spiritual Health:

Pranayama and the Chakras Are the Tools of Yoga for Inner Wellness

11/6, 13, 20, 27 (Online Course)

  • Course Contents
  • About Doug Keller
  • Tuition

The Hatha Yoga Tradition developed new and deeper approaches to pranayama, combined with ideas of the chakras, as tools for caring for our well-being that you do not find in more Classical traditions of Yoga. And yet we are often given a simplistic version of the chakras that is an obstacle to fully benefitting from this wisdom.

In this course we will explore, in a very practical and experiential way, the wisdom of this tradition. Each session will introduce an aspect of this tradition, which includes but is not limited to the concept of the chakras, and bring it into practice with pranayama, guided meditation, and Yoga Nidra.

The goal is to more fully understand and appreciate this wisdom tradition of inner wellness, and to know how to use the tools it offers in a way that works for us, and which we can incorporate into our lives. Not only will you have deep experiences during the course: you will have the building blocks for continuing with your own program of inner wellness that fits your own life, and which you can continue confidently after the course is over.

The course will be two sessions per week over four weeks, 2 hours per session, for a total of 8 hours. Each session will also include a short, all-levels asana session, to make sure we feel refreshed and present for the experience.

Doug Keller's background reflects a lifelong commitment to studying, imbibing and sharing the vast field of knowledge and practice known as yoga. After receiving degrees in philosophy from Georgetown and Fordham Universities in the United States, and teaching philosophy at college level for several years, Doug pursued his “post-graduate” education in the practical experience of yoga at the Siddha meditation ashram, Gurudev Siddha Peeth, in India, for seven years, and spent a total of 14 years doing service, practicing, training in and teaching yoga in Siddha meditation ashrams worldwide.

He received intensive training in the Iyengar system in New York City, practiced Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga in India, and became one of the first certified Anusara yoga teachers, producing three highly respected books on asana, pranayama and yoga philosophy. His work has since taken him beyond the confines of the Anusara system. Doug's further expansion in learning is reflected in his latest and most in-depth work, “Yoga as Therapy”, which is one of the most comprehensive, innovative and useful treatments of the structural aspect of yoga therapy available.

Doug's teaching is rooted in a vast and inclusive perspective of study and practice that honors the insights of the many streams of wisdom that flow into the river of yoga. A regular columnist for Yoga+ Magazine, writing the “Asana Solutions” column that addresses specific therapeutic problems, Doug is a ERYT500 with Yoga Alliance and a member of the International Association of Yoga Therapists.
