Pranayama with Heather Gjerde & Melissa St. James
August 17, 2019
Pranayama, from the Sanskrit, prana, meaning "life force," and ayama, meaning "extension." Pranayama is an integral part of yoga, the conscious awareness of breath: the life force that energizes and relaxes the body. The controlled breathing allows us to both establish the rhythm of performing yoga poses and cultivate the relaxation of the mind for meditation.
This workshop focuses on providing you with an overview of pranayama as a whole, an in-depth exploration of various techniques (including benefits and contraindications, when to practice, etc…) such as:
Ujjayi Naddi Sodhana
Surya Bhedana Viloma
Bhamari Visama Vrtti
Sama Vrtti Sitali
Sitakari Bahya Kumbhaka
Learn how to incorporate pranayama into an asana practice and to cultivate a practice off the mat.
