"Regulate the breathing, and thereby control the
mind." – B.K.S. Iyengar.
Pranayama is translated from Sanskrit as "extension of
the pra?a (breath or life force)" or "breath control." These yogic breathing exercises have the
ability to quickly increase our energy, release stress, improve our mental
clarity and improve our overall health. A
regular and sustained practice of pranayama serves to increase the levels of
oxygen and energy within the body, supercharging our entire being! Join us for this weekend training to better
understand the anatomy of the respiratory system, the dynamics of diaphragmatic
breathing and how to begin to harness the power of this practice within your
life. This training will educate you in
a series of beginning pranayama practices, with techniques for integrating
these tools into your own yoga and meditation practice or your teachings.
This class is required for our 200-hour Yoga Teacher
Trainees, but is open to all who are interested to deepen their practice.
