Yoga for Vitality & Energy | 1:30 pm – 5:30pm
Prana is the deep life force. It is breath, blood and lymph and it animates all the cells and tissues of the body. However, due to compression and stagnation, blood and prana can become restricted. In the midwinter and after the holiday, it is common for there to be inertia and sluggishness, compromising the flow of prana. For this immersion, come prepared to generate blood flow through dynamic and supported postures. We will review the anatomy of the circulatory and lymphatic systems and practice movements to “pranagize” (energize) the body by bringing blood flow to all the tissues of the body. This aids in nourishing the tissues, healing chronic pain and bringing vitality to the body and mind.
