[2-C] Spandana: Exploring Healing Pulsations Spanda is the subtle pulse, vibration, or micro- movement of the body’s energetic system. When we sense this pulsation inside us, we are sensing our own personal spark of primordial life force. Spandana provides a more gross connection with our subtle spanda, and in turn our prana, through the application of a range of pulsing techniques that help the physical body better align with its subtle counterparts. In this session participants will learn:
the principles of spanda
to practice spandana to help clear physical and energetic blocks and improve movement
to use interoceptive awareness
how spandana can enhance the therapeutic efficacy of a range of yoga asana
