In the first part of each session, workshop participants will have a chance to learn and experience several of the most effective restorative poses which draw your mind inward, open your chest and prepare the mind and body for the subtle practice of pranayama. These are simple yet profound relaxation poses for your nervous system.
Many of these poses are gentle supported backarches on bolsters or specialized yoga pillows and can be practiced of common blankets.
In the second part of each class session, students will learn and experience several beginning pranayama (yoga breathing) exercises.
Pranayama is a part of yoga practice where the breathing is done consciously and deliberately to awaken its potential, to develop our capacity for concentration, to soothe the mind, and to revitalize our energy pools.
Few instructors teach pranayama in Seattle, often because they don’t have a regular pranayama practice or they just don’t know this important aspect of yoga.
