April's Theme of the Month is Prana
Our April Theme of the Month is prana (breath, life force, vital energy).
This month at Be Yoga we will be focusing on invigorating backbends, to clear our energy channels, open up our chest cavity, and enhance our prana. As we “spring clean” our bodies with seasonal foods, water, and movement/breath, we welcome deeper breathing, stronger energy flow, and a more intimate connection to our pranamaya kosha (aka “the breath body” or “the energy body”). When our prana is healthy, we feel fully alive, vibrant, and in the flow.
“The word Prāṇāyāma
derives from the Sanskrit words prāṇa
, translating as “life force” and “expansion” respectively. It is a common term for various techniques for accumulating, expanding and working with prana. In yoga, pranayama is a practise of specific and often intricate breathing techniques.
Many pranayama techniques are designed to cleanse the energetic channels called nadis
allowing for greater movement of prana.” – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prana
