Exploring the Prana (Energy) Body, the 5 Winds with Aimee Roberts Wednesday night, May 19, 7 - 8:15 pm. This class is Zoom only. $20.00 Pre registration required, on Punchpass, here.
Not just exercise, Yoga can help you align your energy levels within for a greater sense of connection and happiness with ourselves and the world around us. Prana or life force is defined in yoga asana (the physical practice) as a way to understand energy movement in our bodies. There are 5 winds of prana or directions of flow we express and experience in our postures. Have you heard your yoga teacher talk about prana? Do you want to learn more? Explore the movement of prana as we discover how to cultivate deeper awareness and focus of our “prana vayus” or energy pathways. This attention to our yoga enhances and enriches our yoga practice and helps us achieve our greatest potential. Learn which postures cultivate the flow of the vayus and bring your yoga to the next level!
The 5 vayus, or "winds" are:
udana vayu - upward movement
apana vayu - downward movement
vyana vayu - from the center of our body to the periphery
samana vayu - from the periphery of the body to the center
prana vayu - inward and upward
