Yoga philosophy as well as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), understand that the entire universe and every living being, plant or animal is given its ability to evolve & function by a universal source of vital energy commonly known as prana in yoga (Chi in TCM).
Prana circulates all around us, but it circulates in the body through subtle energy pathways called nadis, which are energy pathways that exist in a very similar way to the nervous system, but more refined and usually invisible to the eye because they are part of the subtle energy body (auric field). So the subtle energy body are the parts of us that we cant see, but which we can feel and that operate within us and constitute who we are. Ida is the feminne channel, Pingala is the male channel and Sushumna is the central spiritual channel. Pingala represents the male, positive polarity, solar force, physical vitality and dynamic activities. The subtle energy body containing the nadis and pranic flows is quite similar to the physical body in many ways, almost acting like a template of energy within and around it. The subtle energy body starts in mooladhara chakra, which is based at the perineum in man or cervix for a woman. Mooladhara is the base chakra from which the three main vital channels emerge and flow up through the spinal cord. Kundalini is a transcendental power said to rest in mooladhara chakra at the base of the spine.
When Shakti unites with Shiva at the crown, it is said that the individual awareness and supreme consciousness merge and we become a divine self realised being.

Prana is often closely equated to electricity, as being the primal power which switches things on and gives them life action.
The entire physical body is imbued with a complex network of these nadi pathways which are allowing life energy to circulate.
The Pranamaya Kosha of what we are mainly referring to here houses the meridian system of nadi pathways. Like yin and yang, Ida and Pingala contain the two primal forces of nature, mind and body in subtle form.

The sushumna nadi which runs through the very centre of the spine, acts like the spinal cord of the subtle energy body and the crown chakra acts like the brain. The pingala nadi leaves at the right side of mooladhara and ida nadi leaves at the left side, with both coiling upwards around the central sushumna to form the Chakra wheels of energy. A disciplined lifestyle and specific yogic practices cause this special kundalini force to rise up sushumna nadi and open out each of the chakras as it passes through them. At this point our mind becomes fully awakened and so whilst living in the physical body we are now completely freed from its sufferings and are blessed with the ability to guide many others to the same state of inner freedom and bliss. It was only then that my master glanced at me and acknowledged my presence.Five years later, I thought freely of right and wrong and spoke freely of approval or disapproval.
There are many thousands of nadis in the human framework, but 72 are considered important and 10 are considered major. Ida contains the mental force of consciousness and Pingala nadi contains the vital and active life force.
Ida and Pingala also relate to the two hemispheres of the brain and central nervous system, with Ida governing the right side of the brain (artistic, holistic) and then criss crossing to control the left side of the body.
The Chakras embedded into Sushumna nadi equate to the main nerve plexuses along the spine of the physical body. Ida is the female channel and mental force and Pingala is the masculine channel and vital force. The whole emphasis within yoga practice stems from the knowledge of these two primal forces and the need to balance them.
As chakras contain the innate potentials of consciousness when the kundalini force moves through and awakens them our innate capacities are released.
In Yoga this is seen as the ultimate purpose to our life and the true cause of inner peace, happiness and fulfilment of all possible desires. My master gave me a smile.Seven years later, my thoughts came naturally without any conceptions of right and wrong, and words came naturally without any intention of pleasing or offending. However they all stem from the 3 main nadis within the spine and these are by far the most important nadis of the subtle energy body. Sushumna nadi is the most subtle channel of all, running up through the spine and around which Ida and Pingala criss cross at several points to help create the Chakra wheels of energy.

Many other nadis spread out from the major Chakras to the entire subtle energy body, just as the nerves spread out from the spine and nerve plexus to the entire physical body. Sushumna is the central most subtle channel of all, through which the cosmic prana flows into our being. When brought into this sacred alignment, a hidden locked door is opened and a powerful energy called kundalini is released upwards through the central Sushumna channel. The higher up we go through the chakra system, the higher and more refined our psychic abilities become. For the first time, my master invited me to sit by his side.Nine years later, no matter what came to my mind or what came out of my mouth, there was nothing that was right or wrong, pleasing or offending.
These 3 nadis are considered the most important part of yoga practice and philosophy, because they are the foundation of being and human experience. Pingala nadi governs the left side of the brain (linear, logical) and the right side of the body.
The ascent of the kundalini force illuminates the entire chakra system, nervous system and various dormant areas of the brain responsible for higher thought, feeling and function.
The ultimate goal in yoga is to cause the kundalini (Shakti) to rise up the central channel from mooladhara chakra and unite with pure consciousness (Shiva) at the crown of the head. This knowledge is utilized in the various practices of yoga asana and pranayama for their desired effects. Outdoor in fresh air, close to a large healthy tree, is best- Wear loose-fitting comfortable clothes- Stand with your feet parallel to each other and shoulder-width apart, measured from your inside heels- Bend your knees slightly and lean them out a bit- Relax your lower back and tuck-in your tailbone.
Surya Namaskar for example stimulates more the Pinglala Nadi and the Chandra Sequence stimulates more the feminine Ida nadi. This will straighten the lower spine- Back of your thighs and buttocks should be totally relaxed and should shake like jelly when you pat them- Tuck your chin slightly inward- Keep the mouth closed with the tongue softly resting on the roof of the mouth- Keep the arms and hands relaxed by the sides of the body- Breathe deeply- Relax completelyQigong, like yoga, is a worldwide phenomenon now and you should be able to easily find a place where you can join people who meet regularly to practise it.
