The Subtle Body - Prana & the Chakras

Ancient yogis described and revered the anatomy and potency of the energy body, which lays beyond the physical form. There are many layers to understanding and experiencing prana, this vital life force, and how it moves through the Chakras or energetic centers. These teachings are at the very core of what makes yoga such a potent and timeless practice.

The breath is the connection to life and the foundation of all classical Hatha yoga practice.
