What is Prana? What is Pranayama and why do we do it? What techniques are good to start with?
The breath, the body and the mind are all intrinsically linked. But we tend to neglect or take for granted our inherent life force (Prana) – ultimately to the detriment of our own health and peace-of-mind.
Join us for our October workshop, where special guest teacher Tamblyn Lord will introduce a basic understanding of Prana and why the regular practice of breathing techniques (Pranayama) and your connection to the breath are instrumental in improving mindfulness and sense of wellbeing.
Some of the techniques we’ll explore on the day:
Ujjayi (Psychic or Victorious breath) • Full Yogic Breath • Kapalabhati (Shining Skull breath) • Nadi Shodhana (Alternate nostril breath)
In addition to Tamblyn’s inspirational teachings, this workshop will encourage you to further explore the vital relationship that exists between the breath and the mind. It may also help enhance and deepen your current asana practice.
Bookings essential, spaces are limited. Open to all levels – everyone welcome. Some movement involved.
