Prana Decoded with Indu Arora

I know we’ve had Indu Arora a number of times on this podcast already, and that’s because she is just full of wisdom to impart to us in understanding yoga in a more thoughtful way while also embracing its roots. She's back to help us understand prana in-depth in this episode.

In a previous conversation with Indu, she explained to us the meaning of sukshma sharira (the subtle body) and its significance to modern-day yoga seekers. This conversation is an extension of that.

Indu eloquently explains to us what prana is, digging into its origin and its different types. She also guides us into understanding how we can connect with and assess our prana and recommends some practices we can observe around it. This is undoubtedly another round of an enriching conversation with Indu!
