Yoga and Chinese Medicine – build Prana and regulate Qi

Yoga

The Vedas are ancient texts from India, written in Sanskrit. They are considered to be divine truths revealed to ancient sages after intense meditation.

Meditation is a practice to bring awareness to the nature of our Self. Slowing and observing our thoughts can expose the nature of our mind, how it connects to our body, and what lies beyond the mind. Repeating mantras or the observation of our breath are common meditative approaches.
