Befriending the Breath

 Live Stream Workshop

Saturday, Jan. 30, 2021

1:30pm - 3:30pm

Cost: $35

 Have you ever wondered why you hold your breath when in deep concentration? Perhaps you wondered why anxiety may cause your breath to become shallow or how crying can result in gasping for breath? Your emotions influence your breath. But, guess what? Your breath can influence your emotions. Pranayama practice, an intentional pattern of breathing one engages in to produce a desired effect, holds potential to positively influence your physical and mental well-being.

 

In this workshop, you’ll learn about the art of breathing and pranayama practices intended to elevate energy as well as calming techniques. The breath is the link connecting mind and body. Enhancing your yoga practice with breathwork can bridge the outward practice of asana with internal practices. Learn basic breathing exercises in this workshop to support your pranayama practice and enhance your yoga experience.  

Learning objectives:

  • Define prana, pranayama and respiratory sinus arrhythmia

  • Describe the respiratory system, its basic structure and functions

  • Demonstrate the following:

    • Linking the breath with movement in yoga

    • Deergha shvasam

    • Ujjayi breathing

    • Vibhagiya pranayama

    • Kapalabhati

    • Nadi shodhana

This all levels workshop is for those who want to learn more about breathwork. Note: Not for those with moderate to severe respiratory disorders. Additionally, some techniques may not be suitable for those with uncontrolled high blood pressure, glaucoma, are pregnant, have psychological issues or those who are trauma sensitive.
