YOGA To EXPAND OUR HORIZONS

We have eyes to see what is in front of us but we can also expand our vision to include the internal atmosphere of the body. From the third eye chakra/Ajna we see the internal colors of the rainbow, imagine the movement of shifting winds/vayus and envision 72,000 energy channels/nadis circulating inside everywhere.

 Within the stillness of a yoga pose there is an opportunity to increase the scope of our knowledge, understanding, and experience. The yoga mat is symbolic of a magic carpet ride taking us to places we haven’t been before. 

 Breathing practices expand the energy body/Prana Maya Kosha outward. Standing postures take us higher off the mat, filling the space more between the head and the floor. In a complete practice of asana and pranayama with quiet meditation, we can transform stuck energy inside and move it to the outside. The path of yoga naturally expands our horizons.
