Gate Pose

This asana enhances your awareness of the spinal energy currents that accompany the breath — especially the upward current. When you view those currents as the core of the experience, Parighasana becomes an inward dance, a joyous celebration of rising energy:

“Waves of joy surge upward in my spine.”

Ananda is a worldwide movement to help you realize the joy of your own higher Self. It is based on the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda and was founded by his direct disciple Swami Kriyananda in 1968.
