The Dhatus in Yoga: Nerve | Online Practice

September 28, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am



The Magnificent Seven: The Dhatus in Yoga 

In Yoga and Ayurveda, the body is made from seven primary tissues called dhatus. The term dhatu means to hold or support and the seven—plasma, blood, muscle, fat, bone, nerve, and reproductive fluid—are the building blocks for the entire body. In this course we discover how all yoga practices from meditation to asana, and from diet to pranayama serve to enhance the function of these essential seven tissues.

Yogic Nutrition and Somatic Healing

We begin by exploring the ground substance of rasa, the progenitor of all 7 tissues. We include a day on nutritional and dietary health for building the blood. We use select yoga practices and somatic movements to generate optimal health in the muscle, fat, bone, and nervous system. Lastly, we will see how the reproductive system is not limited to procreation, but in yoga is the most vital tissue in the body to support radiant health and immunity (ojas).

Ayurveda Dosha

In this course we take time to review your dosha (physical body type) in order to determine what kind of diet and movement practice is ideal for you. Learn how by boosting your individual dhatu, you can generate more vitality in your overall constitution.

Day 6: Nerve | Thursday, September 28

Hatha Yoga increases sensory flow through the nerve tissue and coherency of the nervous system brings a feeling of delight to the entire body/mind. We investigate the effects of diet, pranayama, and mind states on the nervous system. Practices include back arches, inversions, and pranayama.
