THE PULSE OF PRANA!: Awaken the Pulse of Your Life Force

Experience the fullness of your aliveness now! Prana is your life energy, also called Chi. Awakening and harmonizing the flow of this energy in your body and mind is one of the greatest gifts of yoga. Simon offers his unique teachings to transmit the experience of energetic activation. Experience the power of dynamic breathwork to awaken and balance the Vayus, the 5 winds of Prana, so you feel grounded, centred, radiant, and alive. Energize your yoga practice as you learn to move on the energy of the breath. As you open to the flow of Prana, you will feel energized and balanced. Come and experience the pulse of Prana in all your cells. We will apply these energy activation techniques to yoga poses and sequences to feel their effect on energizing our yoga practice.

SUNDAY MORNING SAHAJA: Movement Meditation, Dynamic Breathwork and Ecstatic Flow Yoga
Take your yoga ‘out of the box’ and enjoy a magical journey inspired by the movement based practices of Sahaja, the wonderful Tantrik teachings that changed the course of Yoga history with their profound doctrine of ‘living spontaneously and being vibrantly alive’. Simon will open the session with a sequence of dynamic breathwork to awaken the experience of Spanda, the universal pulse of energy and the flow of the life-force Prana through all the cells of your body. Move from your breath as your body softens and opens. Explore your fluid nature as we dive into a movement based Sahaja yoga sequence, moving beyond the yoga poses and into the space of ecstatic flow. Take your yoga off the mat and ease into a moving meditation, as you explore your natural sense of pleasure through movement. We will close the session with a sublime exploration of the inner dance, inspired by the tradition of Kashmiri Tandava. This will be accompanied by mantras and we close with a healing sound bath and relaxation.
