For a healthy, happy and harmonious life

The seers of India have always known that the source of life which sustains and permeates the whole of creation is the existence of a primeval force, which they called prana. Prâna means a force in constant motion. The ancient yogis tried to understand and experience this vital force and devised practices, methods and disciplines in order to awaken, enhance and harness it both within the individual and the wider universe. How can we today as ordinary people use this knowledge, understanding and experiences to enhance the prana within us as well as around us in order to live a more healthy, happy and harmonious life?
