Pranayama: Enhancing Your Life Force Through Breath and Awareness
Time & Location
About the Event
We can survive for weeks without food and days without water---but take away our breath and we can survive at most a few minutes.
This fact alone shows us just how important our breath is to the overall functioning of the body. Our breath is our body’s primary source of energy, and the most vital function for sustaining life.
The ancient yogis understood the importance of breath, and developed an entire branch of yoga dedicated to this science. Pranayama, one of the 8 limbs of yoga, teaches us to extend or stretch our life force, or prana, through breath, intention, and focused awareness.
This course will explore the subtle, energetic teachings of yoga, along with in-depth instruction of several pranayama techniques, visualizations, and meditations. These techniques are the most effective, time-tested methods of utilizing our breath as medicine for self-healing.
