Take your practice beyond asana
This programme is designed to introduce you to different pranayama techniques. Develop tools to calm or energise yourself through your breath and deepen your yoga practice. Pranayama techniques are often described as breathing exercises. Yet they are much more than that. They clear the physical and emotional obstacles we all carry in our bodies, freeing our breath and so the flow of prana - life energy.
In these 10 classes, you will learn different pranayama techniques:
- Ujjayi Breathing
- Nadi Shodhana
- Nauli Kriya
- Agni Sari
Who is it for?
The programme includes a mixture of techniques for all levels. However, it is recommended that you have an existing asana practice before taking this programme to gain the full benefits.
Certain kinds of pranayama involve strong abdominal contractions, rapid breaths or retention of the breath and so they are not advised if you have your period, are pregnant, have digestive problems, heart disease, eye problems, high or low blood pressure or hypertension. Please note that this is not a complete list of contraindications. If you are in doubt about whether these are suitable for your specific health condition please speak with your health professional.
