In yoga, we believe that our bodies are made up of nadisenergetic pathways through which energy moves and flows. The energy that flows through these pathways is known as prana. (Read more in Kriyas, Kundalini and You.)

In our yoga asana practice, as we flow our bodies in and through our vinyasa, we are actually harnessing this life force energy. This powerful energy has the capacity to heal and support us on all levels; mentally, emotionally, physically and even spiritually. The concept of prana continues to come to the forefront of both Eastern and Western medicine. What used to be an incredibly esoteric and abstract concept is now being proven to be very real. Studies are showing that the energy systems of yoga and Chinese medicine truly exist within the human body.
