This four day course has been designed by Gerry Rixen as a fast track to understand the fundamental principles of yoga and astrology. The combination of these two ancient systems allows for a much deeper self-analysis and understanding of one's innate and current advantages and difficulties. The fundamental tools provided in this workshop are designed to be long lasting, practical, and relevant.

The course presents a unique opportunity to tap into the profound understanding that Gerry has in his respective fields, facilitating a journey into knowledge, self-healing, and wisdom. This yoga course is entwined with the theory of the chakras, yoga psychology, esoteric healing and asana practice, breath control, the use of props, and meditation.

Yoga and Astrology are part of the ancient heritage and share the deep understanding of "as above, so below". This is exemplified in the functioning of the chakras. The chakras are associated with the elements and the planets as well as specific organ functions and aspects of your psyche. Moreover, the chakras also relate to the 12 Meridians, which in turn relate to the Zodiac.

Hatha yoga is the yoga of sun and moon, but Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn. All have specific qualities mirrored in the functioning of the chakras.
