Yogi Q&A: Prana & Yoga Practice Technique
Hi, Yogi Lovers
I wanted to answer two questions that came from my viewers.
One is, how do we detach prana from the body?
Well, prana is energy, and energy cannot be created or destroyed, unless we hit death, when the energy leaves the body. I would say that to make this question a little bit more tangible, maybe how do we manipulate prana, and that comes through:
- Breathing exercises
- Being in nature
- Eating the right foods
- Being with the right people
Yeah… That’s it!
Then, another of you awesome yoga lovers asked a common question.
“My feet get numb sometimes in my yoga practice.”
Well, I would say it’s either a circulation or a compression issue. Maybe the ankle’s dropping in. I would need to look at it, but maybe try to put a block in between your thighs that way there’s engagement somewhere else, which could alleviate some of that pressure being created.
I hope that helps.
Please keep following me. Keep asking questions.
