A couple of weeks ago, Kia Miller reminded us that pranayama is a very important practice within the yoga system because it’s a refining of our energy. It is working with the first unit of energy and expanding it. Through that expansion we create a state of radiant health, vitality and alignment and when we get this energetic alignment, we start to create the conditions for the mind to settle.
So this weekend, if you are feeling stressed out, we challenge you to practice pranayama. It’s a great practice for countering the stresses of modern life. Pranayama helps shift our energy in significant ways so we can manage stress in our lives.
