Cultivating Pranic Awareness in the Body (All Levels)

Prana is the vital force that nourishes—and ultimately makes up—this entire universe. When we cultivate awareness of this energy in ourselves, we gain firsthand experience of the divine compassion and love flowing through us. Shari Friedrichsen leads a class on how to infuse our whole body and mind with prana. Travel with your breath from the perineum to the head—awakening, integrating, and appreciating this benevolent, healing force.
