Through Pranayama, or breathwork, we learn how to influence our life force energy by consciously changing the patterns of one of our most basic bodily functions - respiration. The goal is to interrupt the unconscious breathing patterns, which can all-too-easily be dictated by stress, anxiety, pain, distraction and fear.
Just like asana (the yoga postures), pranayama is a major tenant in the holistic practice of yoga. Pranayama is commonly intertwined with yoga postures through the breath-movement connection and ujjayi breath. In this workshop, we will be focusing on breathwork, exploring several pranayama techniques both in stillness — in a seated or reclined position — and in movement — through simple yoga flow sequences.
You will gain a greater understanding of the power of your breath and how to use different breathwork practices to improve your quality of life and the experience in your body. On a more personal level, I hope you leave the workshop feeling vibrant, full of life, and reconnected to your life’s healing journey.
Breath is life. If we change our breath, we can change our life.
May you always breathe with love.
