Prana Danda Yoga

Prana Danda Yoga

Prana Danda Yoga is an empowering and fluid way to center the mind and awaken the energetic spine (inner danda) by engaging with a specially designed 5 foot staff (outer danda). In yogic tradition the danda is perceived as a reflection of the central energy channel, a symbol of present-moment rootedness and serves as the pivotal axis which grounds one’s practice in guardianship; the penetrating quality of alertness that neutralizes all distraction. The danda supports and guides a series of asanas and spiral movements comprised of a specially designed Prana Vira Flow sequence (vinyāsa) that can be done with or without the danda. I

Integrating the danda with a Prana Vira Flow® vinyasa sequence:

  • attracts mind/energy to the embodied center which creates deeper, energetic alignment, and primal connection
  • heightens one’s presence with an archetype of power, stability and wisdom
  • refines coordination by acting as a “rhythmic conductor” entraining and unifying coherent systems of the body
  • acts a horizontal and vertical alignment tool supporting the body in asana and meditation
  • induces a feeling of interconnectedness, peace and well being
