What is it that makes a visit to the local farmer’s market so nourishing, not only on an alimentary level, but in a deep, soul-touching way?

It’s the abundance of Prana Shakti there - the exuberant and energizing life force that shines in the vibrancy of locally-grown produce. We feel it in the freshness of the vegetables, see it in the rich shades of leafy greens, and taste it in the juiciness of a perfect peach. Indeed, we experience this most essential quality aliveness through all of our senses.

This natural affinity comes from the fact that they, like us, are manifest expressions of the one pulsating consciousness and the creative, animating power at the heart of all life.

This is the same energy that practice expands within us. It’s why we do what we do. Yoga gives us techniques for becoming stronger vessels for holding and growing this life force in our selves and reflecting it our into in our lives.  

The Shakti at the market is the energy of life itself. It’s alive, real and palpable.
