Bring on the graceful flow of prana.
Enhancing energy is a part of every yoga practice. Increasing our internal warmth releases energy blockages and optimize the healthy flow of life force (prana) throughout the body. When energy is moving throughout your whole body, it’s easier to maintain health and happiness. So each time you give yourself time to practice, you’re taking one step toward improving your health.
Certain kinds of poses (asanas) are particularly good for unblocking and stimulating the body’s energy. Back-bends in particular are not only delicious, but also energizing, since they stimulate the nervous system, open the heart, and expand our breathing capacity. Breathing practices help cultivate and maintain our life force, increasing our health and vitality. Perhaps set an intention for good health, increasing energy, balancing prana by simply allowing yourself some time for a consistent yoga practice. Each and every practice takes us one step closer to greater well-being. You deserve it.
