We are made up of not only our physical body, but also our subtle body and causal body. Within our subtle body we have the energy that keeps us alive. Prana is the life force energy that flows through the Nadis and there are three main nadis: Ida, Pingala and Sushumna. Ida is the Nadi that begins in the left side of the body and has a feminine and cooling energy and it is also called our Moon Channel. Pingala is our masculine Nadi, located on the right side of the body and is our Sun channel. Sushumna Nadi is the silver and central cord, running up from the base of our spine and pranic energy from all of the other Nadis are collected and drawn to the third-eye. The practice of Pranayama, expansion of Prana, helps us increase prana and vitality through breath work. To also balance the energy, we need to tend to our mind and also our food. This in turn helps is increase spirituality and the sense of oneness with the highest consciousness.
