ONLINE – Saturday Morning  Special Series: Postures to prepare for Pranayama & Pranayama

Saturday mornings ~ 11:45 AM ~ 1:15 PM

Pranayama is a Sanskrit term for the expansion and restraint of the breath and the vital energies of the body. B.K.S. Iyengar says in Light on Pranayama that pranayama is a vast subject with illimitable potentialities. It is psychosomatic, since it explores the intimate relationship between the body and the mind. It may appear quite simple and easy, but the moment one settles into practice, one quickly realizes that it is a difficult and  profound art.

The practice of pranayama is powerful, helping us to move inward to quiet the mind, and restore and strengthen the nervous system. The  patient and persistent practice of pranayama can give us new insight into the subtle workings of our body and mind.

In this course, we will work on the foundation, practicing asanas to prepare the lungs and the mind to explore the breath,  moving on to the practice of the basic supine pranayamas, and finally building up to seated pranayamas. We will progress slowly, carefully  and systematically to welcome you to this profound practice. 

This class is appropriate for those new to the practice of pranayama as well as experienced students.

Pranayama is an important aid to the practice of asana and meditation. When practiced properly it helps you to balance energy and stabilize mood. It provides a valuable vehicle for experiencing mindfulness in a new way.
