We learn how to breathe slowly and deeply – the right way. Pranayama reduces the toxins and body wastes from within our body. It prevents one from acquiring diseases. Pranayama helps in one’’s digestion. With the proper way of breathing, one’’s metabolism and health condition will start to improve, stress is reduced and the body learns to relax, promoting serenity and peace of mind. Pranayama helps us on our spiritual journey through a relaxed body and mind.

    We invite you to participate in this experiential & informative workshop where you will learn all about the breathing limb of the yoga tree. You will learn what Sage Patanjali has to say about pranayama from his sutras. You will learn different techniques as well as their benefits. Rama will also discuss the misconceptions of pranayama, time of practice and length of a sitting, diet and food habits, postures suitable for pranayama, the sequence of pranayamas, and application of bandhas. The workshop will end with a relaxing yoganidra; (yoga sleep), a guided, deep relaxation.

    The workshop includes a very detailed and comprehensive 36 page electronic document covering the topic of pranayama, meditation, and much much more!
