What is PRANA?
PRANA is Sanskrit & refers to Energy, Life & Breath.
In other traditions, it is known as Chi, Ki or Mana.
Prana is the universal sea of energy that infuses & vitalizes all matter. This sea of energy unites into sub-atomic particles & atoms, which become the basic building blocks of all matter manifesting the physical world. So, every atom, molecule, & cell is an extension of prana, just as waves are extensions of the sea that lies beneath them.
Prana is also the power that flows in all living forms & performs vital functions. Paramhansa Yogananda called this aspect of prana “Life-Force”. We have a subtle or astral body made up of prana that underlies the physical body. Oriental healing techniques, such as Ayurveda & Acupuncture, work to harmonize & strengthen the flow of life-force, calling it variously Prana, Chi, or Ki. When the life-force flows properly, the result will be a natural state of harmonious health & vitality.
Prana is also used to refer to the breath. When we take a physical breath, there is a corresponding movement of prana in the subtle or astral spine. Prana flows up in the subtle spine in conjunction with the inhalation, & down with the exhalation. This link between breath & the flow of prana is central to many of the techniques of meditation. By controlling the breath, which is easily felt, we can influence the flow of prana, which is much more subtle & difficult to feel.

Now, how did the magic of Your PRANA come to exist? Here is an insight into my journey & how everything came to be as you see it today…
Personal experiences at a young age, led me (Antoinette) to fall in love with movement & the intricacies of our health – to dive deeper & uncover truths. My adventures saw me in magnificent places & I fell truly in love with mother nature, she is awe-inspiring!
Along my journey, I endured autoimmune battles, earthquakes, a spinal fusion, physical abuse, emotional trauma, hormonal fluctuations & weight imbalances… These were all gifts, blessings – situations I had to move through to evolve into the person I am today. Events where I learned from my experiences & now use my knowledge to support & inspire lives daily! Seeing the fruits of my journey assist in other’s growth & evolvement is an incredibly heart-warming experience.
Hashimoto’s manifested in 2010 & a Ruptured Disc in my Spine occurred in 2014. These events resulted in half my Thyroid being removed & I underwent an Anterior (L5 – S1) Spinal Fusion. Looking back, I now understand & see the patterns in my life that lead to these events. My lifestyle, environment, relationships & mindset were incredibly huge factors.
An integrated approach to our healthcare is the way forward.
If I would have taken all the advice given to me by medical professionals, solely. Never conducted my own research or studies & followed the medication prescribed without question – I can guarantee you I would not be where I am today. We as a society must question the answers given, do our own research & WANT to educate ourselves. They certainly have their time & place in the world & they can work MIRACLES, but we also have to stop taking their words as gospel. We all must take control of our health – no one will put you as their highest priority, only you can do that.
Do I let my past life experiences limit me? NO.
I witnessed where I was & took action! I could have tried to avoid the discomfort of change, buried emotions – but we all know they always resurface, generally in a worse way. I decided whole-heartedly, I was going to live the life I desired! Defining all odds placed upon me, making it my life’s mission to continue to do so!
Now from taking that path, I have the beautiful ability to guide others to witness their true potential. To find their dharma (life purpose) & live each moment continuing to gradually evolve their highest self.
Know, that you are the architect of your own destiny!
You have the ability to choose who you surround yourself with, the actions you take & the thoughts you have. You HAVE all the abundance, fire & love within you to do all you desire & more! Know that limitless potential lies within you.
If you take anything away from this, please be it that you actively strive to defy all odds placed against you from today forward. You take control of your life. You own your choices, your habits, lifestyle, environment & health. Continually moving toward evolving your energy, raising your consciousness & empowering your soul.
Live your life to the fullest, embrace all the leaps & bounds!
Breathe deeply, move daily, nourish your mind, body & soul.
Be the change you wish to see in the world.
Discover Your PRANA.
