The Flow of Prana: Respiratory and Immune Health

 

Stress and the Immune Response

In times of stress or hyper-vigilance our body, mind, and emotions can trigger the “fight, flight, or freeze” response of the sympathetic nervous system. If stress or trauma becomes chronic the body, mind, and emotions may become imbalanced or weakened and health may become compromised.

This yoga practice “interrupts” this chronic cycle and re-calibrates the body’s natural healing response to “rest and digest” (engaging the parasympathetic nervous system) that restores the body, mind, and emotions to a balanced state of homeostasis (calm energy).  

Scientific research studies in the medical and yoga communities are demonstrating how the practice of yoga, pranayama, and meditation decreases stress and inflammation in the body. When we experience feelings of joy, forgiveness, and gratitude in combination with our yoga practice the body’s overall immune system improves. . 

Asansa: We hold poses longer in this class to increase blood circulation throughout the body and improve the health and vitality of  the respiratory and  immune systems. Asanas include supported forward folds, downward facing dog, wide leg forward flexion, supported inversions, heart openers, bridge, shoulder stand, and restoratives.  

Pranayama: Each yoga class incorporates pranayama techniques, such as alternate nostril breathing and diaphragmatic (belly) breathing, to calm the mind, soothe the nervous system, and optimize the body’s natural healing capacity. 

Pranayma (breath work) maintains healthy lungs where gas exchange occurs  (oxygen from the air is transported to the blood and carbon dioxide is eliminated from the blood into the air) and connects us to prana, where vital- life energy is exchanged with the trees where oxygen is received and carbon dioxide is given.

Healing Injury? For those who have a history of injury or trauma and notice that the effects of the minor/major injuries are beginning to interfere with your everyday lives, please note that all of the yoga classes are naturally healing.

Each yoga class is designed to help release stored pain, anxiety, stress, or tension you may be experiencing so that vital, healing energy – prana – can move freely through the entire body. When vital energy is flowing freely (not obstructed), you experience positive emotions, revitalized energy, mental clarity, lightness, pain relief, and an overall sense of well-being.

“The three factors that seem to have the greatest influence on increasing our happiness are our ability to reframe our situation more positively, our ability to experience gratitude, and our choice to be kind and generous.” ― Dalai Lama XIV, The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World
