Pranayama – yoga breathing
June 2 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Pranayama is the 4th limb of yoga, and is the science of breath. Prana means breath, respiration, life, vitality, energy or strength. Ayama means extension, expansion and ascension. Pranayama means breath extension or regulation. Regular practice of pranayama is as essential as a regular asana (pose) practice. We access the mind through the body and the breath. Emotional excitement affects the rate of breathing; equally, deliberate regulation of breathing checks emotional excitement. Through breath regulation we can begin to calm the nerves, soothe the body and ultimately control the mind.
This workshop will begin with a restorative yoga sequence to quieten the mind and nerves, followed by guided pranayama. The fireplace will be lit and the room nice and warm to accommodate relaxation.
