Let’s review: PRANA – energetic breath/life force – Ashtanga is a pranic practice – focus on and maintain breath training
Why is yoga healthy for us?
1. Keeps the skeletal system; bone mass healthy with weight-bearing asanas; maintains a healthy spine.
2. Keeps the muscular system (ligaments/tendons) strong, mobile and flexible.
3. Keeps the body fluids moving with breath, movement, sweating.
4. Spirit. Essence of who we are; our emotional and physical lives
Chakras – the human body contains 7 energy centers and 72,000 energy meridians (electrical system)
Study our “spirit body” with knowledge of the 7 chakras. Paraphrase from Myss’s “Anatomy of the Spirit” re: chakras: “Data banks in our bodies where you invest your energy.”
Koshas: Anammaya = Body, Pranamaya = breath, air
Our “spirit” energy: we are spiritual/holistic beings. Put on a different “pair of glasses” to see another perspective and keep our energy healthy for a spiritual evolution (caterpillar to butterfly).

A friend once told me, “A true journey of discovery is not so much about changing
our surrounds as about changing the way we see.”
