Impressions of my Tantric Yoga Course

Our own physical body possesses a wisdom which we who inhabit the body lack. We give it orders which make no sense.

Henry Miller

Yesterday I talked with my classmates in the Tantric Yoga Course about my experiences. I am feeling so energetic and I am dreaming so intense. Mostly I even can not even remember that I dreamed and actually I dream every night and can remember quite well what my dreams were about.

In our course we started beside the Shiva and Shakti Breath and Asanas for each chakra to chant a Bija-Mantra for each chakra.

  1. Mooladhara Chakra: Lam
  2. Swadhisthana Chakra: Vam
  3. Manipura Chakra: Ram
  4. Anahata Chakra: Yam
  5. Vishuddhi Chakra: Ham
  6. Ajna Chakra: Ksham
  7. Sahasrara Chakra: Ah

We sit down in a comfortable position, and put our thumb and index finger together (Gyan Mudra). From Mooladhara until Solarplexuschakra the palms lay on the legs, from Anahata to Sahasrara we switch the palms upwards.

Then we focus our intention on the specific chakra and chant for a minute the according mantra, from Mooladhara up to Sahasrara Chakra. Afterwards we are going downwards from Sahasrara until Mooladhara Chakra.

For the intense dreams my yoga teacher recommended me to chant Gayatri Mantra.

oṃ bhūr bhuvaḥ svaḥ
tát savitúr váreniyaṃ
bhárgo devásya dhīmahi
dhíyo yó naḥ pracodáyāt
