Spring is finally approaching! It’s time to clean and honour that temple that is your body and prepare it for rebirth. Join our spring awakening program; three weeks of sattvic detox diet and fasting (optional and depending on the experience) and Pranayama, the yogic art of breathing.
‘Prana’ means ‘vital energy’ or ‘life force’. It’s the vital principle, the force that makes up the entire cosmos, that vitalizes and holds together the body and the mind. In the yogic understanding of life and manifestation prana is the key principle of existence. Without prana there is no life. Our principal sources of prana are food, sun and breath. It’s clear that a long winter, indoor life, bad eating habits and poor breathing leave us tired and exposed to disease. Pranayama teaches the expansion (ayama) of the vital energy (prana). As the breath is considered the external manifestation of the prana, by expanding, controlling and directing the breath we can gain mastery over prana, thus learning how to vivify and rejuvenate the body, harmonise the energies moving in it (the pranic body), prepares the body-mind for the awakening of the chakras (psychic centres), create a solid bridge between the body and the mind and open the doors of our mind to other states of consciousness.
Our three week program will give you strong theoretical and experiential bases to apply the art of breathing to different aspects of your life and deepen both your physical and spiritual practice.
A full commitment to all three weeks is necessary to guaranty a fast group development and a deep learning.
During the three weeks of pranayama practice you are invited to keep a sattvic diet to detoxify and nourish your body, and combine it with 1 to 3 days of fasting every week, thus improving the deep prana enriching effects of pranayama.
