Pro­mote prana

Yoga Journal - - Practice Well -

The goal of yoga is not to per­fectly per­form asana. In­stead, try to in­crease prana (life force) in your body, and then take this pos­i­tive en­ergy out and make the world a bet­ter place. Prana is our fuel. Prana is life. The prac­tice of yoga in­creases this life force in our be­ing through breath and di­rec­tion of en­ergy. By con­trol­ling and con­sciously uti­liz­ing your breath, you feed ev­ery cell in your body, re­lax your mind, and calm your ner­vous sys­tem. It is im­por­tant to gain some per­sonal ben­e­fit from your yoga prac­tice, but it is also im­por­tant to share the good vibes, en­ergy, and pos­i­tive ef­fects—to ex­ude some of that nice yoga glow by shin­ing pos­i­tive light on the world. Keep it sim­ple and keep it real.
