In yesterday’s podcast, we talked about prana – the powerful energy and life force of the universe. Prana is a subtle energy that fills us, but it’s also the life energy that’s found in nature.
While breathwork and noticing our breathing is one of the best ways for us to tap into our internal prana and feel that energy moving through our bodies, we can also cultivate our prana through our interactions with the world around us.
When I first starting learning about Ayurveda, I learned to appreciate the power of food. What we eat literally becomes our skin and muscles and cells inside of us. What we eat is what we are.
And, what we eat can also nurture and increase or it can drain our prana. So how do we know which foods are high in prana and will nurture our spirit as well as our body?
Foods that are High in Prana
This week is all about prana – that life force and energy that’s flowing through each and every one of us. In today’s episode, we’re doing an intro on prana and discussing how do we even notice this subtle energy flowing through our bodies? Get ready for a week full of prana and energy-filled goodness.
In Today’s Episode:
-What is prana
-How do we feel prana in every day life?
-The connection between breath and prana.
-Ways to increase your access to prana.
When you work with an Ayurvedic doctor or counselor your prescriptions aren’t the traditional medications. You’re instead given prescriptions about which foods to eat, yoga poses to do, spices to favor, and breathing exercises and meditations to focus on.
Now, breath might not sound like the most important thing to fix your health issues, but it’s a lot more powerful than you think!
