Prana: Pulsation of Consciousness

Spiritual Evolution of the Universe

According to tantra, prana is something much deeper than just an energy capacity of the body. It is the pulsation and manifestation of consciousness that allows us to be aware of consciousness itself. Learn how this understanding can transform our relationship with yoga, making prana the centerpiece of our asana and meditation practice and allowing prana to lead us to the subtle experience of our very essence—consciousness.
