Bridging The Breath

Pranayama. Mantra. Meditation. This session will lead you safely into the realms of the subtle body through breath control and ultimately freedom of the breath. Pranayama is an often neglected component of the Yoga system, and is the essential bridge between physical postures and meditation. Connect with the life-giving forces of the inhalation and exhalation. What we will delve into:

  • Correctly refining the Ujjayi breath
  • Using mantra to improve quality & length of breath cycles
  • Safely explore breath retentions to balance the nervous system
  • Basic kriya to prepare for pranayama practices
  • Pratyahara practices to transition from pranayama into meditation more smoothly
