The concept of prana is ancient and can be found in the Atharva Veda, where five types of this ‘bio-energy’ are described. All functions of our body and mind are performed by them, and our health is dependent upon their proper flow. According to the Upanishads, the cavity of the heart is the seat of these vital powers and ‘the abiding Self’.
In Ayurveda these five pranas are called the vata-subdoshas or prana-vayus:
During this workshop, we will explore how these five pranas mysteriously govern different types of asanas. This framework can help us strengthen a weak prana and create balance between the five pranas. It can also help us uncover practical approaches to fine-tune our energetic systems through asana sadhana. In this way the sequences of asana sadhana are vehicles through which we can direct and balance the pranas.
