Prana is the force of life. In yoga it is everything essential. Without its grace, transformation would literally be impossible. The science of Prana (Prana Vidya) is the knowledge of awakening the fullest potential of yoga and life. These teachings and techniques – collected since time immemorial and detailed in the Vedas, Upanishads, Tantras and many other key texts – describe with incredible detail and nuance the hidden keys to happiness, power and success. In the hands of a capable practitioner or teacher they empower us at every level. They show us how to change the quality of the Pranic (subtle or etheric) body to affect everything from health, to state of mind, to a deepening of spiritual awareness.
