When we slow down we can focus on alignment not only anatomically but energetically: moving prana in a different way from our habit patterns. In this comes real freedom and transformation, in the body but also emotionally, psychologically, we experience ourselves and the world differently, more harmoniously. As the goal becomes not performing poses, but … Continue reading Slowing Down
