About the Event
Develop a new understanding of what it means to breathe beyond your basic inhale/exhale.
Pranayama is control of Breath. "Prana" is Breath or vital energy in the body. On subtle levels prana represents the pranic energy responsible for life or life force, and "ayama" means control. So Pranayama is "Control of Breath". This short, True Breath, pranayama workshop, is designed to build a conscious and joyful relationship with your breath both on and off the mat. You’ll lengthen and strengthen your breathing with progressive patterns and guided meditations, which will transform your practice and improve your health on and off the mat.
In this workshop you will learn new breath techniques including:
- Natural Breathing
- Basic Abdominal Breathing
- Yogic Breathing
- Nadi Shodhana - Alternate Nostril Breathing
- Ujjayi Breath
The breathe techniques help improve lung capacity and diaphragm mobility, reduce anxiety and physical tension , stimulate creativity and inspiration, and open up a new understanding to your physical practice that allows you to take it to the next level.
