The Intelligence of the Body
We inhabit a body that communicates and processes information on a sensory level far more encompassing than our cultural view leads us to believe. We have access to massive intelligence that informs us through all of our multi-dimensional ways of being. Research has shown that a large percent of communication is non-verbal. We are exchanging information all the time even when we are not speaking. Embody Yoga offers tools, practices and lifestyle for discovering and accessing information within ourselves that comes from intelligence beyond what is already known.
We are Vibrational Beings!!
This art of embodying more radiance through yoga is a practice of remembering who we already are as vibrational beings. It’s an invitation to bring awareness to our thoughts, feelings and emotions and work with them in the body. Through the practice, we move into the places where we get stuck and use the breath and presence to allow the life force to open and flow, creating new pathways of being. Embodiment is about acknowledging all of our emotions, thoughts, sensations and feelings, giving them space and letting them flow. It’s an invitation into the core of the heart connected to the root of the body to reveal our interconnectedness to all of life.
Shakti is associated with feminine and is know to be the creative energy in the universe.
Prana is life force energy and the foundation and essence of all life; the energy and vitality that pervades the entire universe. It is life force that flows in everything that exists. It is the connection between the material world, consciousness and mind.
It is distributed in the body through a network of the nadis “meridians” to every part of body. It is said there are 72,000 nadis in the human body. Among them are:
3 Main Nadis (energy channels)
Ida, the “Moon”, connected with the left nostril
Pingala, the “Sun”, connected with the right nostril
Sushumna, the “Central Channel” within the spine.
Ida and Pingala criss-cross each other at seven chakras along Sushumna Nadi creating energy vortexes. As we move up along Sushumna Nadi the elements become lighter and lighter, starting with the five physical elements of earth, water, fire, air, and ether, and then moving up through the spiritual elements of sound and light.
Our practice is to awaken Shakti in the body. Waking up what’s asleep. All yoga is about awakening what’s asleep. We do the practice to have more of these Shakti’s awakened.
