The 5 Prana Vayus: Apana in Practice

with Shari Friedrichsen

Details

Awaken and contain apana vayu by systematically working the key muscles of the pelvis. Apana vayu is one of the five subdivisions of prana (the life force). It is concentrated in the pelvis and is responsible for physical, mental, and emotional detoxification. Shari guides you in activating and releasing the muscles of the pelvic floor and the back and front of the pelvis. Releasing the muscles and breathing into the pelvis helps the muscles stay strong, nourishes the pelvis, and enhances apana vayu so that it can carry away toxins.

Props: yoga mat and block.

Audio and video downloads are available for Digital Members.
