From Survive to Thrive: Practices for Everyday Wellness

Meg McCraken
1 Season, 7 Episodes

Often we have the sense that life is happening to us rather than with us, and we are left in a contracted, disempowered state of stress. As a result, we meet life in a habitually reactive way in order to get by and simply survive. Eventually, our perceived lack of control drains our body, being, and spirit of health and vitality.

Through the teachings of the Vayus, the five winds of life, we can learn how to accompany the current of life and regain personal power, knowing that life is happening for us and through us. Engaging with the wisdom of the Vayus, we will see the defensive patterns that we had stored in our bodies and minds begin to soften as we open up to life’s nourishment. We begin to cultivate the ground upon which the vitality of our spirit can move from merely surviving to unconditionally thriving. In this series, through asana, pranayama, and meditation, we will experience each of the five Vayus and blossom into our true being by incorporating these Vayus into our everyday life.
