Prana and the Astral Body

Saturday, May 14


The astral body is the subtle energy body which is the counterpart of the physical body. Prana, or vital energy, circulates through the body in a dense network of astral energy channels, or nadis. These not only permeate every part of the body, but also create an extensive energy field, or aura, around it.
All yoga practices have a direct effect on improving the flow of prana, vital energy, and lead to increased vitality.


2pm         Workshop: Prana and the astral body

    • The 3 bodies : physical body, astral body and causal body
    • What is prana and how to increase it
    • The mysteries of the astral body
    • How to purify and strengthen the astral body
    • The passage called death
