A Guide To Prana

Not too long ago, she offered a preview of Prana in her open-air theatre in Madras before an invited audience to assess its impact. Satisfied with it, she presented il in Bombay at a premiere and then again at the India International Dance Festival in Delhi. Prana consists of three sequences: Navagraha, the nine Shalabhauuia- Soorya in sirasasana in the middle planetary houses; Soorya-Namaskar, an invocation to the Sun-God; Soorya and the Seven Horses. I see in the presentation a clever and J imaginative mixture of the 5 techniques of yoga, Kalaripayattu and Bharatanatyam, utilized to illustrate the basic 3 truths of yoga sastra (quietism) in plain non-decorative style.
