Harness your life force through yoga practice focused on the 5 vital energies that keep us vibrant, balanced and healthy.

This 6-week class series includes breath-centered postures, pranayama (breathing practices), chanting and meditation, each week focused on one of the 5 vital energies – prana, apana, vyana, udana, samana – plus one additional class to bring it all together.
