In the history of yoga practice, directing the life force in the body (prana) was compared to the way farmers damed, collected and irrigated water for their fields. Thus prana is thought to move like rivulets, streams and tributaries (called nadis) through the tissues of the body.
In this class we practice yoga posture and somatic movements to open the channels of the body, some of which are extremely delicate and subtle. By alternately extending and contracting the body’s connective tissues, we pump fluids through the circulatory system and irrigate blood and lymph into all the cells of the body. This class is designed to sense and feel the movement of the life force throughout the subtle body.
