Balancing Prana, Revitalizing Your Health – Online
with Margabandhu Martarano, E-RYT 500, B.A. and Amrita Sandra McLanahan, M.D.
December 19 - 20, 2020
Explore the five major types of prana and learn how subtle anatomy practices can rebuild and revitalize your health during this online workshop.
According to yogic philosophy, disease is an imbalance in the distribution of pranic energy (life force) in the body’s system. There are five major types of prana in the subtle body, called prana vayus. These five prana vayus govern different areas of the body and have different movements and functions. When prana is functioning harmoniously, they promote the health and vitality of the body and mind.
The practices of Yoga, including pranayama (breathing techniques), mudra (gestures), and asana (yogic postures), can balance prana in the body. Join senior Integral Yoga teacher Margabandhu Martarano to learn how to work with each prana, their effect on the organs and glands, and the conditions that might appear when prana is out of balance. Dr. McLanahan will round out the program with practical information for the health and healing of the subtle body.
Live sessions on Saturday at 9:30–11 am and 2–3:30 pm and Sunday at 9–10:30 am ET.
You will have access to the video recordings for 8 weeks after the program ends, until February 14, 2021.
In addition, you will have access to the Ashram’s Live Hatha Yoga classes at 5 pm ET, recorded Ashram meditations, and inspiring talk with Sri Swami Satchidananda. You will also have access to an online social community to connect and communicate with other participants about this course.
