Prana, the vital#energy present in the air that we breathe, links our inner and outer environments and connects us with all beings and all nature. The volume and quality of prana that circulates within our bodies determines# the level of our vitality, and this internal reserve of energy can be increased and purified by#pranayama, or conscious breathing. On Pranayama, Nubia Teixeira will guide you through a restorative practice interweaving these breathing techniques with open-hearted-meditation, visualization, and singing. Nubia is joined by celebrated world music artist Jai Uttal and his longtime collaborator Ben Leinbach, who provide a vibrant new#soundscape of progressive world music to enhance your pranayama practice.
