Prema yoga filozofiji, Prana, unvierzalna životna sila je sastavljena od 5 elemenata: zemlja, vatra, voda, zrak i eter.  Svaki od tih elemenata prane reprezentiran je u jednom od vayu-a. U asana vježbama, proučavat čemo činjenicu da kosti predstavljaju zemlju, a mišići vatru. Kosti imaju sposobnost uzemljavanja, spuštanja, ukorijevanja, a mišići imaju sposobnost uzdizanja i akcije.  Kosti drže energiju zemlje, a mišići energiju vatre. Ipak, nijedan ni drugi to ne pokazuje bez naše namjere. Prema tome, kad vježbate, imajte namjeru za kosti da se spuste, uzemlje, a za mišiće da podignu energiju iz zemlje, da se pomiću i djeluju. Živčani sustav je element od vode a respiratorni sustav je element zraka. Pravilnom primjenom vayu-a za vrijeme vježbanja, primijetit ćete kako se živci šire baš kao voda. To smiruje um i tijelo, smanjujući stress. Isto ćemo proučavati način na koji se šire pluća dok dišemo.

PETRA BRAJDIĆ-MITIDIERI

Petra Brajdic-Mitidieri is a London- based, Croatian-born yoga teacher.
Petra has been teaching yoga in London since 2000 where she studied with some of the best yoga teachers in the world. She has learned Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga (Power Yoga) directly from John Scott with whom she studied intensively from 2001 until 2005 when he moved to New Zealand.  She was also fortunate enough to attend classes given by late Patthabi Jois on a few of his latest visits to London. Besides Ashtanga, Petra is a keen practitioner of Iyengar yoga, which precision and alignment she incorporates in her teaching.  The biggest influence on her teaching at present time is the ‘teacher of teachers’, Aadil Palkhivala, with whom she studies on regular basis.  
Petra’s teaching is based on the approach to every student as an individual. The main characteristics of her teaching are high motivation of her students and an ‘intelligent’ and holistic approach to posture work (injury prevention is a priority).  Petra has taught many of today’s yoga teachers, who still regularly attend her classes. Petra also holds a Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Imperial College, London, which is often reflected in her teaching.

Prana and Vayus - What are they and how to apply them to your yoga practice
In this 3-hour long workshop you will learn how to make your asana practice better by looking at it from the energetic point of view.  We will explore prana in different groups of postures and the concept of vayus will be introduced.  This workshop is suitable for yoga students of all levels and experience.

PRANA VAYUS WORKSHOP February 13th, 2010.
Vayus – 5 currents (winds) of Prana (10:30-13:30) 250KN

According to yogic philosophy, Prana, the universal life force is made of 5 elements: earth, fire, water, air and ether.  Each of them represents a different vayu.  In asana practice we will explore the fact that the bones represent earth and the muscles fire.  The bones carry the ability to ground, to descend, to root, and the muscles to lift, to rise, to act. The bones hold the earth energy, the muscles the energy of fire. Yet neither manifests its nature without intention. Thus, when you are practising, intend the bones to descend and the muscles to lift energy from the earth, to move, to act.The nervous system is the element of water and the respiratory system the element of air.  By correct application of vayus, when practicing we will feel how the nerves are spreading just like the water does.  This soothes the mind and the body, relieving stress. We will explore the sense of expansion in the lungs as we breathe in.
