Facilitated by Anne Minter
The study of yoga offers many pragmatic practices beyond the postures, or asana. In fact, according to the yogic science, the postures are largely practiced to prepare the practitioner for the more subtle, yet profound, practices of pranayama, mantra, mudra, and meditation. This 6 week workshop is a mini course on the practice of pranayama, the science of controlling and concentrating life force energy, or prana, in the human body. Thirty breath techniques will be taught over the course of six weeks covering the following thematic areas:
Week 1- Anatomy of Breath
Week 2- Breath of Fire practices
Week 3- Breath in Alternating Channels, Right and Left Nostril practices
Week 4- Breathing in Strokes, Segmented breath practices
Week 5- Pausing the Breath, Breath retention practices
Week 6- Breath and Prayer practices
All participants will receive a 50 page manual to aid them in practice continuance of these 30 breath practices, after completion of the course"
