Breathing is at the heart of yoga.
As we cultivate the breath, we open to the transformative potential of our yoga practice. The breath allows us to cultivate energy in ways that can profoundly enhance our asana and meditation practices in addition to improving our lives off the mat.
This workshop integrates both the East and the West exploring anatomy and physiology of respiration as well as the subtle energy body. Topics will include the autonomic nervous system, koshas, prana vayus and nadis.
Practices will include thoraco-abdominal breathing, ujay, anuloma viloma, kapalabhati and brahmaree pranayam. We will learn how to guide ourselves and (if you’re a teacher) students in cultivating awareness of the principal bandhas.
