Fueling the Heart
There are two essential forces within our being that allow us to be alive and healthy on this planet: Prana [life force] and Agni [inner fire].
If your Agni (digestive fire) is strong and healthy you will experience health and vitality in your whole body. Food is essential to our lives, and what we eat and how we digest it has a big impact on the quality of life you experience.
Prana, born from the element of air, is what fuels the fire! It is what keeps us moving continuously, and keeps the rhythms in our bodies alive even when we sleep (i.e. breath, heartbeat, lymphatic movements etc.)
The science of Pranayama is as old as we have been breathing for. Through consciously using your breath you can direct it to particular parts of your body and mind, thus choose how you feel and how you want to be in each moment.
In this class Christiane will take you through EBR3 with a focus on the movement of the diaphragm and the expansion and opening of your chest, thus increasing your lung capacity and pranic awareness.
The Bhima posture tops it all up as a fantastic way to strengthen your Agni and inner radiance. The result is a strong radiant body with healthy immunity and a calm relaxed mind. :)
