Restorative / Yoga Nidra and Pranayama with Mona Anand

June 7, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


A Practice designed to balance our energy and connect back to spirit

Prana  is the vital force that rides on the breath and enlivens us. Pranayama means expansion of this vital force. We use pranayama techniques to balance our energy, to reign in our minds and our senses, to heal, to create internal transformation and to  lift  our consciousness.

We are made up of five vibratory fields (koshas) that surround our spirit.  One of these fields is the  pranamaya kosha   which is the fuel for the other vibratory fields.   The other fields  include  the  physical body, the mind, the wisdom body and the bliss body. Just as the physical body is made up of our muscles, joints, organs etc the pranamaya kosha is  made up of  of  five forms of  prana. These five forms of prana are called vayus, and govern  different functions in us.

They are:

  • Prana vayu  that brings in energy, prana
  • Apana vayu  that governs  the releases  of waste
  • Vyana  vayu   that distributes  the energy we take in
  • Samana vayu  that  transforms  energy  from one form into another
  • Udana vayu   that governs the upward movement of energy toward higher consciousness.

In this workshop we will balance these vayus using a pranayama technique developed by Mona and Alan called  ISHTA Vayu Shodana. We will also incorporate  various other pranayama techniques  and visualizations  into the asana,  restorative  and yoga nidra practice.  When  our prana is balanced we are able to  connect back to spirt and  we feel energized and inspired in our day to day living
