Prana and The Body
Kyo Yoga & Healing
Prana is an animating force expressed through the breath. Although we cannot see it, we can come into awareness of it through yoga practice and the tools yoga offers (pranayama, mudra, mantra, bandha).
When we can sit quietly with ourself we notice our energetic state and its internal subtleties.
Yoga as a traditional practice is focused on moving Prana to create wellness and clarity. This is the goal of practice. Prana can become stuck, or even move outside the body – in both cases leading to poor health, mental agitation and a disregulated nervous system.
Understanding what Prana really is and how it functions is beneficial for all yoga practitioners. The ancient text The Hatha Yoga Pradipika offers much insight into this.
Harnessing vitality creates self empowerment and a deeper insight into how to practice.
This workshop will offer valuable insights around Prana as a concept from the ancient viewpoint and its connection to Nadis (energetic channels of the body) yet with a practical understanding of how we can work with it on and off the yoga mat.
A yoga practice will be included incorporating many ‘yoga tools’ that can direct prana to its most potent (including some subtle bandha work).
