Yoga Workshop with Dr Costanza Ceccarelli (Italy)

Into the symbolism of late haTha yoga:” the spine”, axis of the world

Haṭhayoga tradition is well and alive in India today, and it’s represented by lineages (sampradaya) within the largest ascetic orders. The word haṭha, which literary means “force”, denotes a system of physical techniques supplementary to yoga more broadly conceived. Haṭhayoga is first refered by name in Sanskrit texts dating around the 11th century CE, but in later formulations this tradition showed a further permutation, when the Tantra or kaula systems of the visualization of the serpent goddess Kuṇḍalinī rising as kuṇḍalinī energy through a system of cakra is overlaid onto the original frame. In this late tradition (ca. 14th century) yoga practice included a new prominence to the role of the body, not only through greatly expanded interest in the physical postures (āsana) but also by the of symbolism, which had to play a strategic role in the techniques of visualization. 


In this talk we aim to have a look into this vision, which considers the human body as “the symbol” par excellence, summarizing in itself the whole process of emanation-dissolution of the entire universe from One matrix. We are going to discover a very rich symbolism of the body, which takes a lot from the Indo-vedic cosmogonic mythology, and which puts at the center the symbol of the spine as the axis of the world (meru), and which visualize in the form of the vajra, Indra’s sword, with its point grounded into the earth and its hilt up in the sky: the powerful symbol of the process by which our energy rises in the central canal as a sword enters the sheath.
