About the Event
In ancient yogic philosophy, breath was drawn to channel subtle energy, to cleanse the spirit and to lengthen the lifespan - yet, why is breath still interesting in modern yoga practice? And how can we utilize these ancient breath techniques to our benefit today?
If you wish to obtain a calm breath throughout the entirety of a yoga class, this event will give you tools to understand and improve your breath technique and unique breath pattern.
This event will include lectures, workshops and practices of breath and prānic energy as we look into eastern (yoga philosophy) and western (medicin) perspectives of breathing.
What you get from this workshop
— ancient and modern breath techniques — techniques to start your home practice — tools to track your breathing progress — awareness on challenges and strengths with your breathing during āsana classes — why exercise the breath according to eastern yogic philosophy — why exercise the breathe according to western medicine — awareness on the connection between prāṇa, prāṇāyāma (breath exercise) and dhyāna (meditation)
