Inside each of us is a brilliant source of light and vitality. According to ayurveda, this light is agni—the inner fire that fuels digestion, supports immunity, drives creativity, and gives us vitality. When agni is low we feel dull, lethargic, detached, and unmotivated. When agni is strong we feel vibrant, engaged, energized, and purposeful. This inner fire empowers us and supports everything we do in life, from parenting, to completing projects at work, to standing up for what we believe in, to expressing ourselves creatively. Throughout life, it’s imperative we continue to stoke this inner fire of inspiration and light, so we can be fully present and enjoy our lives.
Stress and negative habit patterns can create stagnation in our bodies and minds, which then thwart our enthusiasm for life. Many of us unknowingly smother and suppress the inner light of agni, whether through negative self-talk, overcommitting, minimizing ourselves, or through diet and lifestyle choices that don’t support agni. When agni is low, everything that it supports also flounders—our digestion suffers, immunity weakens, enthusiasm tanks, and we might even find ourselves struggling to get out of bed in the morning.
To tap into this inner light, you need to awaken the energy that lies dormant in the abdomen and pelvis. Yoga suggests a few key practices to stimulate this area and regain the inherent energy and vibrance inside. This weekend getaway will teach you the most important practice to connect you to your inner fire—agni sara. It will introduce you to ayurvedic concepts that support and build your agni, and that can be easily incorporated into your day-to-day lifestyle. You will clear away stagnation and congestion, access your vital energy, and recharge your body and mind.
