What is Yoga Pranala? Yoga Pranala is a powerful combination of Vinyasa flow, mudra pranala (energy movement), pranayama (breathing), yoga nidra (relaxation) and meditation for self-healing. Through the practice of Yoga postures combined with gentle breathing and movement, life force is activated, stress patterns are released, and the nervous system and glands are stimulated. Increase your awareness of the energy flowing in your body, connect to the energies of the earth and the universe and unite the two poles to access your power, which manifests inside your body as prana. According to the lontars, Balinese sacred texts: Pra means first – Prana means power – Nala means inner fire – Pranala means circulation. Prana and energy movements are essential for the healing of our mind, body and spirit. Faculty Linda Madani E-RYT500 is an inspired spiritual healer and yoga teacher.
