Twist To Tranquility
Although underrated, twists are powerful poses and have many benefits. They open the primordial channel of energy along the spine – the Sushumna Nadi (channel of grace), which puts you in touch with the universal energy within you. In addition, twists are the “tonic” for the spine. When anxious they calm you down. When exhausted, they rejuvenate you. Discover how to get the most from your twists by learning the subtle nuances of alignment that make even the simplest twist come alive with the mystical power of prana – the life force.
Strengthen Your Pre-Frontal Cortex through Pranayama (breathing) and Meditation
Become the gatekeeper of your mind! Medical science has confirmed that the practice of yoga, especially meditation, strengthens and thickens the pre-frontal cortex, the part of the brain responsible for your executive function, ability to discriminate, and envision a broader perspective. Explore the power of these practices and the effect they have on your body, mind, and spirit. During the class, you gently stretch and open the ribs, chest, and lungs, then practice the spiritual art of breathing and meditation in the Tantric tradition.
