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 your 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 five forms of prana. These five forms of prana are called vayus, and govern different functions in us.
- 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.
