Intro. to Ayurveda - Part 2: Ayurveda’s View of Prana and Agni  with Julia Kress, C-IAYT, E-RYT 500, AYS

Saturday, August 5, 4-7pm
Prana is the life force that enlivens and invigorates the body, mind and senses. Agni, the digestive fire in the body, governs digestion, assimilation, and elimination on all levels; physical and mental. When agni is healthy, we feel content, vibrant, and nourished by life. When it is out of balance, we doubt, fear, hold grudges, and feel an overall lack of energy. In this workshop, we’ll begin with the theory behind these two subtle forces of health. We’ll close with an asana practice designed to help you experience the forces of agni and prana in your own body and mind. • Attention Yoga Teachers: This course qualifies for 3 continuing education credits with Yoga Alliance.
