Workshop: "Breath is life"

 

Two pranayama workshops for experienced practitioners

 

Monday 20 and Monday 27 March from 6.30 - 8.30pm

 

Breath is life. Gaining control of the breath by practicing breathing exercises, pranayama, increases the flow of vital energy through the body which recharges body and mind. Pranayama trains the respiratory muscles, develops full use of the lung capacity, increases the body’s oxygen intake while reducing it’s carbon dioxide levels. Pranayama also relaxes and strengthens the nervous system, calms the mind and improves concentration.

 

Theory:

-          How to strengthen the flow of prana (vital energy)

-          Understanding the three fundamental nadis or energy pathways

-          The function of the solar plexus, the ‘abdominal brain’

 

Practice

-          Vigorous practice of kapalabhati

-          Prolonged practice of alternate nostril breathing

-          Practice of minor pranayamas like Sitala, Sitkara and Brahmari
