Pranayama is the practice of breath control in order to fully balance the body and emotions while focusing the mind.
This practice greatly reduces stress, anxiety and burnout
Pranayama practice builds on asana practice (yoga poses) bringing further benefits of health, well-being and greater awareness to the practitioner. The health benefits include: deeper steady breathing, increased oxygenation of the blood, lower blood pressure and increased concentration. Spiritual benefits include increased levels of prana (life energy), stable mind and emotions, increasing wholesome (sattvic) states of mind and viriya - joyful energy to practice the path.
During the workshop we will focus on how to practice pranayama during the asana practice and as a stand alone practice. We will cover pranayamas for the body and pranayamas for spiritual development.
This is a rare opportunity to get deeper into the more subtle practice of yoga.
This practice is taught in the tradition of Sri B.N.S Iyengar of Mysore.
