Kundalini Awakening: The Balance of Major Yogic Nadis

Vasant Lad, BAM&S, MASc
3 credit hours

In this three hour webinar, esteemed Ayurvedic physician Vasant Lad, BAM&S, MASc will introduce some of the major yogic nadis or channels of the body such as the Ida, Pingala, and Sushumna. He will dive into their function and significance in the physical body and the mind as well as their role in awakening Kundalini.

He will also explore the various ways in which these nadis become blocked or obstructed and simple techniques and routines to help bring them back into balance. You can expect to leave this webinar with a clear understanding of the role these yogic nadis play in the material and subtle planes, and how to support the flow of prana through each of them for greater harmony and balance at all levels of your being.

Topics we will cover in this webinar

In this webinar, we'll embark on a transformative exploration together:

What a nadi is and the multitude that exist in the human body.

The roles of major yogic nadis and their fundamental connection to the breath and prana, as well as how they relate to the three doshas.

The significance of the major nadis on the path to spiritual enlightenment as they relate to Kundalini and the chakras.

How the major nadis may become obstructed or blocked through diet, lifestyle, and mental emotional habit patterns as well as past-life karma.

Strategies and tips for how to support clear flow through each of the nadis for optimal physical, mental/emotional, and spiritual evolution.

Take this webinar if...

You would like to gain insight into the role of the major nadis within you and how to promote their proper flow for all aspects of your personal growth and evolution.

You are a healthcare provider curious to see how an understanding of the major yogic channels could give you a different perspective on your clients’ concerns and broaden the ways in which you support them.

You are an Ayurvedic practitioner wanting to deepen your understanding of how the major nadis play a role in the concerns your clients face and techniques to support all aspects of their health and wellbeing.

Things to note

All are welcome to attend this course! That being said, Vasant Lad, BAM&S, MASc will use Sanskrit terminology and discuss yogic principles such as Kundalini and the chakras, so having an awareness of these concepts prior would be helpful.

He will also discuss the nadis and their imbalances in relation to the three doshas and prakruti-vikruti paradigm, so having a basic understanding of Ayurveda would be greatly supportive though not required.

What is a Nadi?

The word nadi may be translated as a tube, duct, cord or vessel, but it also represents a channel, stream, pulse or flow. The Sanskrit root nad means sound vibration and movement, so we can understand nadis to be subtle channels that enable the flow of energy throughout one’s being.

There are 72,000 nadis in the body, all of which originate in the seven chakras. The chakras are energy centers or reservoirs of consciousness related to the major nerve plexus centers that tie the physical body to the astral body.

As an example, the three major yogic nadis ida, pingala, and sushumna are joined and rooted in muladhara chakra or the root chakra and from there ascend until they meet again at Ajna chakra or the third eye. It is the touch of a guru at the third eye, this point where all three major nadis intersect, that can awaken Kundalini - the coiled, serpentine, spiritual energy that lies dormant at the base of the spine and whose ascension leads to higher spiritual awakening.

Sushumna is the central nadi rooted at the base of the spine that ascends along the spinal cord and from which all other nadis branch. Kundalini travels up the sushumna if unobstructed.

The other two major nadis, ida and pingala, regulate the breath and thus greatly influence the nature of our mind and day to day perceived experience. Ida nadi opens into the left nostril and connects to the lunar, feminine, yin energy that is more passive, cooling, and tranquil. Pingala nadi opens into the right nostril and relates to the solar, masculine, yang energy that is much more active, hot and fiery.

Many imbalances in the physical and mental emotional body may originate simply from breathing more through one nostril than the other!
