Prana is the deep life force. It is breath, blood and lymph and animates all the cells and tissues of the body. However due to compression and stagnation, the blood and prana become restricted.

In yoga it is thought that the entire universe including the body is made up of vibration. All that vibrates produces sound currents that flow like rivers.

Come prepared to sense how vibration resonates in the innermost chamber of your spine, spinal cord and cranium. $60.00

Gravity as Therapy: Why Savasana is the Most Important Pose
Sunday, January 6, 2019 from 12:00pm – 2:00pm
Much of yoga as in life involves learning to let go. In a yoga practice, the “corpse” pose, often the very last position and its corollary, yoga nidra or the yogic sleep require a profound letting go. This process involves not only physical relaxation but a kind of psychic relinquishing. In this class come prepared to drop into states of profound inner relaxation in order to create more ease and lightness in your body and mind. $45.00
