Yoga to Balance Apana Vayu

January 13, 2014    BY Lynn Matthews

Here's a good practice for feeling grounded! Apana vayu, one of the 5 subsets of prana, is the grounding and descending force in the body. It governs mental, emotional, and physical elimination. This strong sequence emphasizes samavritti breath (exhalation and inhalation of equal length) and encourages you to ground into the earth through the entire session, finally melting into the earth with a concluding relaxation. Props: meditation seat and yoga block (optional).

Audio and video downloads are available for Digital Members.
