The Yogis say that the “quality of your breath reflect the quality of your life”. A fast breath equals a stressed mind, unfocused emotions and a sick body. A slow, deep breath equals a calm, balanced and focused mind, health & well-being.


This weekend will explore prana through Asana, Pranayama, Mudras, Bandhas, Mantras, Chakras including Prana Vidya theory and practices. Prana (energy) Vidya (knowledge) is an ancient and powerful meditation that deals with the system of prana for healing and spiritual awakening. Knowledge of Prana is knowledge of the universe. Everything moves because of Prana, it is source, means and destination. Prana Vidya is both a final goal of total awakening and it is also a process, which focuses on activating, directing and enhancing the vital energy.

The key to the ‘knowledge of prana’ is its applications into daily life, learning to use our energy consciously, conserve and build it.  Explore the science behind the breath, the importance of the relaxation response and its connection to our physical, mental and energetic experiences.



Chakra illustrations by Turid Ousland. Ajna and Manipura Chakra are both important in relation to Prana and Prana Vidya practices. All the chakras will be touched upon during the retreat.

Delve into Mudras, which are gestures and expressions of particular states of consciousness and energy. By using them consciously, the practitioner directly and indirectly influences mental and emotional states, health and well-being. With the use of mudras, the practitioner can consciously awaken, balance and redirect Prana to influence the physical and subtle aspects of the body and mind.

Experience Prana Nidra and other Prana meditations to learn how to enhance the flow of energy in your body as well as conserve and direct Prana for health and wellbeing, as this is an important key to healthy organs, optimal endocrine system, balanced weight, mental and emotional clarity and equanimity.
