PRANA: THE PATH OF ENERGY (75 hours)


Prana is the force of life, the energy that underlies all activity – physical, mental, spiritual, and cosmic. The science of Prana (Prana Vidya) is the knowledge of awakening the fullest potential of yoga and life. These teachings and techniques detailed in ancient scriptures, such as the Vedas, Upanishads, Tantras and many other key texts, empower us at every level.  They show us how to change the quality of the Pranic body to affect everything from health, to state of mind, to a deepening of spiritual awareness.


Topics covered include:

  • The Kosha Model
  • The Pathways of Prana
  • The Three Qualities of Energy
  • Prana Vayus
  • Kundalini and the Awakening of the Chakras
  • Energetics of Asana
  • Energetics of Pranayama
