Pranamaya kosha

Source Quote

After this he went again to his father Varuna and said: “Father, explain further to me the mystery of Brahman.” To him his father answered: “Seek to know Brahman by tapas, by prayer, because Brahman is prayer.” 2So Bhrigu went and practised tapas, spiritual prayer. Then he thought that Braham was life: for from life all beings have come, by life they all live, and unto life they all return.


Kosha/s Explained

Life can be considered a bio-electrical and vibrational energy phenomenon and health revolves around balancing energy through various means.

"In every culture and in every medical tradition before ours, healing was accomplished by moving energy.” – Albert Szent-Gyorgyi, Biochemist and Nobel Prize Winner. As with many things, there are different levels of prana (vital energy) present in everything. A person experiencing a sense of dullness, lethargy and low mood levels could be said to have low prana, whereas someone at ease and content, with plenty of energy and a sense of purpose may have high levels of prana.

Link attention to breath, the main catalyst for circulation, prana flows where our attention goes. Open the body, release tension blockages, allow areas to expand into full range of motion, improving energy flow. The pulling and pressure in yoga postures excites prana to flow into the areas increasing circulation.
