pranayama picBody and Breath
an exploration of pranayama practice

What is pranayama? Isn’t it just alternate nostril breathing? And, what does it have to do with my yoga practice, anyway?

This workshop will guide you through two parts:

  • Body (Asana) – Through a range of upper body and hip openings, we’ll set the stage for expansive lungs, and ease in sitting. The asana is appropriate for all levels of students incorporating yin, vinyasa, and restorative poses. We’ll also explore how the breath works in sun salutations, blurring the line between asana and pranayama
  • Breath (Pranayama) – We’ll bring in formal pranayama practice by exploring the philosophy and purpose of pranayama, along with guidance on the physical posture and quality of breath for a pranayama inhale and exhale. Then we’ll learn the first pranayama technique that you can take home and continue to explore.
