Prana

Prana is the vital life-force energy that runs through us.
In some traditions it’s known as chi, ki, or simply energy. The prana moves through the main energy channels of the body, that are connected with the chakras. The optimal flow of prana reflects the qualities of vibrancy and calm. Prana reflects the life within and flows through the different sheaths or layers of our physical and energy bodies.

Prana needs to be active in our bodies, but not too fast as to overwhelm our system. If it’s too calm, then it grows stagnant. Finding a balance between these two qualities is the goal of practicing yoga. Whatever state we find ourselves in, we can use the different postures or methods in yoga to help balance the energy we find ourselves in.

Meditation and You

How to be Present

More than anything, I have found that meditation is the best in bringing me to the present moment. Meditation has been proven to decrease physical pain and anxiety. But, what exactly is meditation? It’s a technique used to attain a state of consciousness that’s different from the waking state.

Meditation is focused attention on something. Many people use the breath as their “anchor” for meditation. The joy that comes from meditation is everlasting in our lives. Meditation also leads to being non-reactive to our emotions and thoughts. How do we get to this place of non-reactivity in our lives? Continue reading “Meditation and You”
