Yoga and Astrology; empowerment through ancient wisdom

This four day course has been designed by Gerry Rixen as a fast track to understanding the fundamental principles of Yoga and Astrology as well as providing practical tools for working with specific chakras, organs and psychological issues.


The combination of these two ancient systems allows for a much deeper self-analysis, and understanding of ones innate and current advantages and difficulties.

Through the exploration of these subjects we can begin a deeper dialogue within ourselves, understanding better our own psyche and personal paths in life; leading to higher awareness and self-empowerment. 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 Gerry has in his respective fields thereby 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.

The Course and subjects covered

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 our 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.

Subjects covered

  • Yoga asanas (postures) related to chakras and organ function,
  • Breath control and meditation
  • Understanding nature: the principles of oriental and western esoteric healing, polarity and movement
  • The AKASHA (etheric field) and the four elements
  • Understanding signs and symptoms of imbalance, physical and psychological
  • The seven pillars of being: The chakras, the Planets, Yoga Psychology
  • The 12 basic archetypes in nature: the zodiac, organs and meridian stretching
