Prana is a Sanskrit word for life force or energy. Prana Paint™ technique is a unique sensitizing approach developed by Indian choreographer Ashley Lobo to explore movement through connectivity, yoga, breath, and touch. Sensitizing the individual’s awareness to breath and sensation becomes the focal point of this yoga based technique, and is instrumental in allowing movement or dance to appear. Various exercises from yoga to experiential exercises with all surfaces from floor to air to skin are used to get the individual closer to activating Prana flow. This approach encourages the individual to allow movement so that the body can create its own art, something that is unique and personal. The key in Prana Paint™ technique is to listen to the body rather than tell it, to allow rather than to create.
