Deepen your yoga practice by connecting with your breath
The Sampoorna Asana Challenge workshops, on the first Sunday of each month, are long hatha yoga classes focusing on a specific theme. In the Asana Challenge classes you can grow in your practice by fine-tuning your poses by through precise instruction and correction and learning poses step-by-step.
On 1 June the theme is PRANAYAMA (proper breathing):
In the yogic tradition, the breath is seen as the outward manifestation of prana, or vital energy. Gaining control of the breath by practicing breathing exercises – pranayama – increases the flow of prana through the body, which literally recharges body and mind. Your aim should be to pranayama for up to 30 minutes every day, preferably in the morning to kickstart your digestion and start your day refreshed.
In this Asana Challenge we take the time to practice the key breathing exercises (abdominal breathing, full yogic breath, Kapala Bhati, Anuloma Viloma) step-by-step in a correct way, learning how the breath can influence our mood, health and asana practice.
Tip: eat lightly and at least 2 hours before your practice
