Focus of the practices
The winter season is a time for reflection and introspection. This time of year gives us a chance to slow down and prepare ourselves for a new beginning. It is a time to allow our inner radiance to shine like a candle in the darkness, reminding us that there will be light again when spring arrives. It is a time to celebrate our inner light.
Regardless of the short days, and cold dark nights, we can notice and appreciate the light that is still flickering around us and inside ourselves. According to ancient Indian texts, each of us possesses an inner sun — our solar plexus (Manipura), one of the seven chakras or energy centers within the body.
Located in the area around the digestive system, your solar plexus can be thought of as a personal furnace, creating nutrients from the food you eat, and sending those nutrients to replenish the cells around your body.
In Ayurveda, this digestive furnace is also called the Agni, which is Sanskrit for fire and connotes the Vedic fire god of Hinduism — he is regarded as the friend and protector of humanity, and in particular, he safeguards the home. The Ayurvedic concept of fire, or agni, is critically important to our overall health, our homeostasis — our home for the soul.
Agni is the force of intelligence within each cell, each tissue, and every system within the body. Ultimately, it is the discernment of agni that determines which substances enter our cells and tissues, and which substances should be removed as waste. In this way, agni is the gatekeeper of life.
Our agni governs digestive fires, mental clarity, a lovely glow to our skin and complexion, vitality, the creation of digestive enzymes, all metabolic activities, and much more.
Traditionally, the solar plexus is responsible for the transition of radiant energy down to your root for grounding (and keeping your toes warm) and up to your crown, helping you realize your bright beauty. It is considered the seat of your intuition, a symbol of your guiding inner light, and the source of your creative fire.
It is your core energy, keeping you centered and strong within your yoga practice, essentially stoking your agni. Ways to have a healthy agni include nourishing warm foods, yoga, meditation, chakra-balancing, laughter, joy, good digestion, good sleep, massage (abhyanga), and more, essentially giving yourself time for rest and self-love.
