Afternoon Workshop: Pranayama & Philosophy
1:00 pm ~ $40
Pranayama: Breath is directly linked to life force energy. Yoga often uses the word prana which refers both to the breath & to the vital energies of our body. As we move breath through the body, we also move Prana. The steadiness, fullness & depth of our breath reflects the same characteristics of that vital flow of energy. The practice of pranayama, the fourth limb of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, is the practice of intentionally directing the movement of the breath. It requires practice to become aware of our breath & to direct it intentionally. As we focus our attention on the movement of our inhales & exhales, our awareness is drawn inward to experience ourselves on a deeper, less distracted level.
