Pranava, Prana, Pranayama: A Practicum | Dr. Robert Svoboda

  • Craeture Yoga Town Studio 2/142 Bangalow Road Byron Bay, NSW, 2481 Australia (map)

Where prana, the life force, exists, so does life; no prana, no life. The free, well-channeled flow of prana brings well-being; obstructions to that flow, particularly those caused by obstacles that we set in its way, prevent prana from fulfilling its task. Sometimes prana becomes so knotted up that what appears on the surface is something quite different underneath. When we get out of prana’s way and let it do its work, we follow the direct path to happiness & health. During this presentation we will focus on the life force, on how to open ourselves to it, become more familiar with its ways, determine the nature of obstructions that might arise within its circulation, and identify simple practical remedies to eliminate these obstructions.
