Prana in movement, breath and stillness
We need to start at the beginning. What is prana and how do we work with it? This session is a tutorial to give you insight into the power of working with your subtle energy. There are 3 main ways to access our prana (movement, breath and stillness) and we’ll work step by step to discover the techniques and the benefits of understanding the power of our Prana.
Movement practice to release Prana
Let’s get the energy moving! We’ll get energy moving through your muscles, joints and spine through movements that wave, spiraling, flex and extend and then bring it all into stillness. Pause and learn to sense your life force rising up under your skin. The more we cultivate our relationship with Prana, the more we are aware of the energy flowing under the skin and ultimately feel connected and whole in our body which is the aim of an embodied practice.
Tibetan Purification Pranayama
Learn a simple but wonderful Pranayama practice accessible to everyone. This variation of Nadi Shodhana uses alternate nostril breathing with few unique aspects as it involves a mudra with an arm movement. The mudra helps maintain focus. Tibetan Purification Pranayama will ultimately tune you into a sense of grounded balance with ease and calm.
Vi Sama Vritti Pranayama
This practice focuses on lengthening the exhale longer than our inhales. A lot of research has been done on the benefits of an extended exhale and this technique, with a retention on the inhale, is no exception. Even just a few minutes of Vi Sama Vritti can relax the sympathetic nervous system, increase relaxation, reduce anxiety and tension as well as expand the lung capacity. This is a practice you’ll return to again and again.
Experience our life force in action
Tap into the energy within during this Power of Prana course. Learn to access, experience, and direct your Prana and take your practice to a more subtle level inviting ease and grounding to your body and your life. Prana and our nervous system are intricately linked so as we tune in and work with our energy we can regulate stress levels and boost immunity. In this course, I will show you how to experience your Prana in movement, breath, and stillness. Not only will you get a full “moving prana” sequence to practice, but I'll also teach you two very powerful pranayama techniques that will help you feel that vibrancy under the skin and really come home to your body.Get Started

Hi, I'm Julie
I'm here to invite you into a practice that embraces your individuality and curiosity. An EMBODIED Yoga based on a sensory experience, free from outdated dogma and limited linear structures.
Raised as a Vendatist, I grew up immersed in the philosophy of yoga. In my 20's I began to practice asana and research different ways of moving while studying the history of yoga. The resulting discovery is that yoga is EVOLVING and always has, so we have permission to explore these practices, challenge the myths, and move forward with knowledge and awareness.
My mission is to EMPOWER your practice. To help find your own pace, fluidity, and strength in a structure that is an invitation, not a rule. Tap into your curiosity and trust your experience to take charge of your practice on and off the mat.
