Understanding Prana: 20Hr Yoga Alliance Course

Comfort in movement practices begin and deepen with an understanding of the breath. The subtle energy body stimulates easefulness and expansion through coordination of body and mind to a place where the yogi develops upon the deeper limbs of Yoga. Throughout the weekend we will focus on how direction and control of prana can be used as a tangible means of development in asana and a magnetizing force for pratyhara and dharana. From this foundation we will further develop awareness of bandhas and how prana can be used to create steadiness and ease to seemlessly deepen all parts of the 8-Limb Path. Simplified pranayama exploration, interrogation of asanas, creative mudras and techniques of dhyana will be shared. This program is ideal for the aspiring yogin and those interested in using prana as a means for self-analysis and realization.
