Yoga La Source

Pranayama: Yogic Breathing (2 hrs)

starts Sunday 20 october 2019 at 08:45

This program is taught in English.

In this two-hour program of yogic breathing techniques, we will practice mindful and dynamic breathing that requires full presence and concentration. The practices will purify the energy channels of the body called “nadis” and have a direct influence on the physical, emotional and mental state.

"Prana" means life force, and "ayama" means extending, controlling and directing. As the breath and mind are intimately connected, one can render an agitated mind serene and joyful by focusing on long, deep and steady breathing with and without breath retention and by applying energy seals called mudras and energy locks called bandhas. The regular practise of Pranayama gives strength, good health, vigour and vitality. It improves concentration and helps the mind to focus deeply on the essence and joy of one's deepest nature.

Get in-depth information about the why and how of respiratory control techniques (Pranayama).

Preferably no breakfast before the program but if needed only a very light one.
