WITH TOM GILLETTE
For absolute beginners, advanced yoga teachers and everyone in between
You will learn a delightful, modern breath practice, developed by Tom Gillette and based on the lineage of Swamee Kripalu. This 25 minute daily practice is the optimal way to start your day feeling clear, bright and awake!
The session begins with an experiential immersion of deep listening to the body and breath. Your rib cage will naturally relax and become more open to receive breath. We move into the active phase of practice, in order to mobilize the breath, and gently increase lung volume over time. Through a series of soft, supported yoga postures and breath techniques, we will touchdown into still moments of insight, peace and ecstasy.
What follows is a 30 minute powerpoint presentation focusing on the scientific research behind breath practices. It helps to cognitively understand the physiological basis of why praanaayaama works.
We end the workshop with a series of “Breath Experiments,” testing out the theory and putting it into practice.
$25 before Jan 14th | $30 for members | $35 at the door.
Pre-registration is encouraged!
As part of the workshop, we will be doing a couple of gentle yoga postures and some simple movement. Wear comfortable clothes that let you move freely. A yoga mat is suggested but not required.
