Yoga for Balancing Pranic and Apanic Energies
Hatha Yoga workshop with some explanation of the benefits and reasons for this practice. This workshop will help us better understand our subtle pranic energy flows within the body and how we can build up the solar and lunar charges to ground and centre ourselves. These practices work on the Kanda energy at the base of the spine, starting with a gentle practice developing into a stronger rhythm, whilst focusing on the breath and going inside our body with our awareness to encounter the Nadi flows particularly up and down the sushumna central flow. This session will complete with a Yoga Nidra technique for a restorative relaxation.
