Energy Essentials


By YJ Editor  |  

In yoga, when we talk about energy we talk about prana, the pulsing lifeforce that moves through your body. We practice asana (yoga postures) and pranayama (yogic breathing), eat certain foods, wake at certain times, and engage in other practices to help support the flow of prana. Follow the links below to learn more about prana and how to boost your energy with yoga.
