Vital life force energy. Breath. Energy. Similar to chi, ki or qi (qi gong, tai chi, reiki), prana is an energetic force contained within and around the body. Prana draws energy and air from outside the body and distributes that energy throughout the body along nadis (pathways). Understanding prana is the sum of visualization and suspended disbelief. Like all aspects of yoga anatomy, prana cannot be seen. But visualizing its existence is another tool for imagining health and wellbeing from a homeopathic perspective. Examine the other components of yoga anatomy with the same open-minded perspective.
