The Fluid Body

Prajna Yoga 200hr training with Djuna Mascall


The body is 75 percent water, and as we age, the body slowly loses its hydrating capacity. This session is taught by Djuna Mascall and explores flexibility through fluidity. We will investigate:

  • How tissue hydration is essential to our vitality by directing blood flow in the yoga postures

  • How heart, lungs and diaphragm drive the body fluids

In our study, we include myths from the yoga tradition that describe the curative power of water.

Course of Study:

  • Bio-mechanical actions of the hands, arms and shoulders in yoga

  • The third chakra, the kidneys and adrenal glands

  • The upper trunk including the sternum, shoulders, arms, diaphragm, brachial plexus, heart/lung and carpal tunnel

  • Mobilization techniques for the ribs, spine and shoulders

  • Shoulder openers and arm balance preparations

  • Backbends, inversions and arm balances

  • The myo-fascial matrix and the five myo-fascial sheaths that spiral around the trunk and arms

  • Nadis, meridians from Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda marma points that relate to the arms and upper trunk

  • Sensitizing the diaphragm, ribs and lungs for pranayama

  • Maya and illusion and the inquiry of what is real

  • Water, transformation and the power of myth

  • The story of Siddhartha and teachings on karma, inter-dependency and nonjudgmental awareness
