Centering & Developing Awareness with Pranala Yoga

Welcome to Pranala Yoga, a fusion of Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin, Tantra and Restorative Yoga. The influence of the Sharman’s of Bali, through the teachings of the Pranala Mudra, make PRANALA Yoga a rare and beautiful experience.

Yoga Pranala, combines the knowledge & discipline of Yoga with an ancient energy healing system based on energy movement. This was transmitted to me during my Yoga Teacher Training in Bali in 2014 by my teacher Linda Mandin-Grondin http://www.intuitiveflow.com/ a student of the renowned Balinese Sharman, Tjokorda Rai.

Yoga Pranala supports your spiritual development by strengthening your physical, emotional, mental & spiritual bodies. Pranala prepares you to merge your individual consciousness with the source & your individual intelligence with the universal intelligence. This invites you to go beyond the limits of the 5 senses mind.

In Balinese lontars, ‘pra’ means first; ‘prana’, power; ‘nala’, inner fire. ‘Pranala’ means circulation. The word Prana comes from 2 roots, ‘Pra’ means first & ‘na’ is the unity of energy by extension of spirit. Therefore ‘prana’ can be understood as the first unity of (energy) spirit.

‘Annie’s Pranala yoga class is a wonderful experience and Annie has a very good voice to guide in the asanas, breathing practice and meditation. I felt very relaxed and Annie’s individual guidance during the class was helpful, and her many years experience in the healing profession shines through.

All the best with your wonderful yoga classes Annie,

Peace and Oms

As first you learn to move awareness in the frontal passages or ‘frontal nadi’. Then you explore the energy in the spine & the spinal channel or ‘sushuma nadi’. When the spine is flexible & healthy & devoid of blockages, inner balance takes place.

Breathing is an essential part of a Yoga Pranala practice. The breath initiates & finishes the asana movement. When you are consciously breathing you are channelling prana/spirit/consciousness. The breath is the vehicle that carries spirit within you, through & around your body. At first you use your awareness to lead the asana movement but eventually it is the energy that leads you.

During the practice of Pranala Yoga you will connect to your highest self by shifting from thinking to sensing, merging your left-brain functions of intellect & individual will with your right brain functions of receptivity, intuition & instinct. As you bring your awareness to the heart you internalise the experiences of the mind. Your thought process then moves to stillness.

‘After participating in Annie’s pranala yoga classes I feel relaxed and serene, with new awareness about my breathing and movement.’ Catherine Howard, Business Manager, Kenmore

During Pranala Yoga you learn to increase your awareness of the energies of Mother-Earth feminine-negative & the energy of the universe masculine-positive. The union of these poles within you appears as Prana or life force energy. Prana & energy movements Mudra’s are essential for the health of your mind body & spirit.

Principles of Pranala Yoga

  1. Centering – Centering your awareness to the the heart. The seat of your soul. This is referred to as your individualised consciousness
  2. Rooting – Rooting yourself down into the planet, focuses the connection points between your feet, the floor & earth allowing you to experience the rebounding back of this energy throughout your body.
  3. Connection to the sky – This is our connection to the universe. To spirit. Allowing this energy to lightly cascade down upon you during your Asanas opens you to wisdom & knowledge within.
  4. Spine as an aerial – Feeling your spine as a connection between the earth & the heavens through all your Yogic practice
  5. Fourth fusion – Feeling both of these energies merging within creates a perfect harmony & balance. This is essential for mental emotional physical & spiritual health
  6. Breathing – the breath is the vehicle for prana. The breath initiates & finishes the movement. The pause between the inhale & the exhale & the exhale & the inhale extends the breath, the consciousness & the life span.

Rules of alignment of Pranala Yoga

  1. Centering your pelvis – as the foundation for the support of your spine is essential for balance safety & release in all Yoga Asanas
  2. Centering the chest – creates space within your heart centre & deepens your connection to universal love
  3. Erecting the spine – creates space between your hips & armpits, the midbrain & the tailbone.
