WITH SWAMI SIVASANKARIANANDA
Prana is the universal principle of energy or force. “Whatever moves or works or has life, is but an expression or manifestation of prana.” Breath is the external manifestation of prana. With the regular practice of pranayama—or controlling prana—you can store this energy in your brain and nerve plexi. You need an abundance of prana to be healthy and strong. Hatha Yoga has developed this to a science.
In this workshop, we will talk about building, storing and chanelling prana. We will look at classic sitting positions and will introduce and practice kapalabhati and anuloma viloma (alternate nostril breathing). Learn a safe practice you can do daily. It is good for your body, internal organs and digestion. Balance and calm the mind.
Swami Sivananda says, “A Pranayama practitioner will have a light body free from disease, very fair complexion, a sweet melodious voice, and pleasant smell from his body. He will have good appetite, cheerfulness, a handsome figure, good strength, courage, enthusiasm, a high standard of health, vigour and vitality, and good concentration of mind.”
