Asana for Pranayama Mini Intensive

July 8 – 10th / August 26 – 28th

7:00-8:00am Online Only

In this Asana for Pranayama Mini Intensive, we will learn the important principles for the practice of specific asanas in preparation for pranayama. In the initial stages of practice, some asanas are performed once or twice without holding, so that the movement of the body and the breath are synchronized. Then, it is clearly established with which movement to inhale or exhale; movements that expand the chest and abdominal cavity connect with the inhalation, movements that narrow the chest and abdominal cavity connect with the exhalation.
This type of asana and pranayama practice calms the nervous system, stimulates the glands, increases the capacity of the breath and frees one from physical and mental stress. The mind becomes relaxed, calm and clear.

General level – two years of yoga practice required.

Fee: $65 / Early Bird: $55
