“As the wind drives smoke and impurities from the atmosphere, Prānāyāma drives away the impurities of the body and mind.” – B.K.S. Iyengar
This 20-hour Prānāyāma workshop will give you the tools to deepen your understanding of the subtle body. We’ll discuss the anatomy of the Prānāyāma kosha, the behaviors of prana, and how to manipulate prana to create balance and equanimity in your own -or your students’- practice.
We will begin with training in the anatomy of the energetic body, including how prana behaves and moves within our body.
You’ll learn the basic components of Prānāyāma, various techniques used in practice and experience led pranayama sessions. You will then also how to incorporate these ideas into your personal and professional practices.
Included in the weekend’s curriculum is the energetics of sound, where we will join our voices in the ancient practices of mantra. We will also practice and discuss effective ways to use bandhas to move prana effectively.
