There's still space in this Saturday's Pranayama (Yoga Breathing) workshop.

This intensive is highly recommended for students with a strong asana practice who are ready for the next step. You'll learn how to weave a breathing practice into your daily routine (and how it fits in with concentration/meditation).

Saturday from 2-5 at Sweet Pea's. Space is limited; pre-registration is encouraged. More info and sign-up here.

Saturday, April 28, 2-5 PM
Sweet Pea's Studio, 3717 N. Ravenswood, Suite 213

Pranayama is the fourth limb of Patanjali's Raja Yoga system. "Prana" means life-force, and "Yama" means restraint. In this rarely-offered workshop, we will explore how the prana affects the 72,000 nadis (nerve channels) that yogis believe run throughout the body. Pranayama helps clear these channels and calms the mind, preparing it for meditation. Balancing the prana also makes it easier for the practitioner to concentrate and perform their daily tasks.

Participants will learn safe breathing techniques that they can weave into their daily sitting practice as well as "special occasion" practices for healing. These practices are based on the teaching of Sri Dharma Mittra.

Participants should have a regular asana (posture) practice. A vegetarian diet is also strongly encouraged.

Sigh up here.
