Limited Capacity seats available

The benefits of having a pranayama practice, combined or separate from asana practice are many. Learning to work more with your breath and prana will give you a kind of lightness and another quality in your asana practice. Pranayama also requires our full attention and can offer us a similar deep inner state such as in meditation. In this class we will learn how to prepare our bodies properly for pranayama by using asana and specific stretching exercises to create space in the chest and torso. We will take time to practice and explore the full yogic breath, and look in detail several techniques such as Viloma, Kapalaphati, Samavritti and Nadi sodhana pranayama. At the end we will learn and practice some combinations of short and longer pranayama sequences which we can do at home every day. This class is suitable for students and teachers who are more experienced with pranayama and for students with little or no experience at all.
