▪ Some yoga basics ▪
The foundation of all life, of the whole universe, is the subtle life force energy the yogis call ‘prana.’ This mystical energy flows through our bodies and generates our every action – from gross physical movements to minute biochemical processes. •
While practicing yoga you learn how to direct, increase and cultivate this subtle, energy body.
Prana travels through thousands of tiny channels called nadis to every cell in the body.
The chakras connect nadis and are thus responsible for the distribution and circulation of prana.
By cultivating, controlling, and activating prana yoga aims to liberate the mind and expand consciousness.
