About this class

In this transformative class, immerse yourself in the profound practice of Breathing Meditation, also known as Pranayama, and unlock the power of your breath to cultivate calmness and vitality in your life.

Breathing is an essential and often overlooked aspect of our well-being, yet it holds the key to our physical, mental, and emotional balance. In this class, we will explore various techniques and principles of Pranayama to harness the potential of our breath and tap into its immense benefits.

Through a carefully designed curriculum, you will learn how to create a deeper connection with your breath, expand your lung capacity, and develop a greater awareness of your respiratory patterns. Each session will combine theory and practical exercises, creating a holistic learning experience that integrates knowledge and direct experience.

Throughout the course, we will explore a range of Pranayama techniques, including:

Diaphragmatic Breathing: Discover the power of deep belly breathing, allowing the diaphragm to fully engage and promoting relaxation, stress reduction, and improved oxygenation.

Nadi Shodhana (Alternate Nostril Breathing): Experience the balancing effects of this technique, harmonizing the flow of energy in the body, enhancing mental clarity, and promoting a sense of inner peace.

Kapalabhati (Skull Shining Breath): Energize and cleanse the body with this invigorating technique, which aids in detoxification, stimulates the respiratory system, and increases vitality.

Ujjayi Breath (Victorious Breath): Learn how to generate a gentle oceanic sound with your breath, cultivating a sense of focus, calming the mind, and enhancing concentration during meditation.

Bhramari (Bee Breath): Discover the soothing effects of this technique, which involves creating a gentle humming sound, releasing tension, promoting relaxation, and connecting to a deeper sense of inner tranquility.

Throughout the class, you will receive personalized guidance and support as we explore the techniques together. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions, share your experiences, and deepen your understanding of the profound effects of Pranayama on your overall well-being.
