Breath Cycles

One inhalation and one exhalation is one complete breath cycle

Chakras

In Sanskrit, Chakra means wheel. There are 7 main wheels of energy that run along the midline of the body from the base of the spine up to the crown of the head. Chakras collect energetic frequencies from the universe and redistribute them throughout the rest of the body using a network of smaller chakras called nadis.

Drishti

Gaze; the place where your eyes naturally rest. This may be referred to while in a balancing pose. Staring into the flickering light of a candle can help soothe an over stressed gaze.

Kula

Community of the heart. There are people that come into your life that share the same mission, the same purpose. Sometimes we are brought together through blood and other times we are brought together through common interests and just plain old kismet. They are your clan. The circle you travel with. This is your Kula.
