Prana Vidya 

January 8

February 5

10:00 am – 1:00 pm

Prāṇā Vidya is the knowledge of energy healing and meditation. In the Upanishads prāṇā vidya is identified with Brahman itself. Prāṇa vidya means knowledge of life force.

It includes prāṇāyāma practices, concentration and meditation techniques.

Svara is the Sanskrit word for the flow of prāṇā. Svara is defined by the qualities of the breath and the pranic flow. Through greater awareness of prāṇā, consciousness expands. Prāṇā vidya is a system of meditation by which you acquire knowledge of prāṇā. According to ayurveda, disturbance of prana creates many diseases. Prāṇā vidya practices enhance healing and transformation.

Prāṇāyāma balances, strengthens, and increases life energy. The result is a peaceful mind, the foundation for expanded awareness. Prāṇā vidya is a way of living in harmony with the body, mind, and spirit.
