[Live Streamed] Attuning the 3 Pillars: Breath, Body, & Mind with Rai Lowe
Dec 13, 2020 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm| $25
Our breath is our life force so it is no surprise that how we breathe can affect our physical health and mental well being. This 3-week series is designed to promote a healthful relationship with your own breath, body, and mind.
Each week will focus on learning, fine-tuning, and exploring a specific breath technique practice, called pranayama. You will learn three total pranayamas that will support you in your daily life. From assisting you in regulating your energy, to optimizing your respiratory systems, to managing stress in the body & the mind, these techniques can be a whole new way to practice self-care and compassion.
In short, this series aims to answer the question: Why does the breath matter?
With the guidance of your instructor, you will be led through:
✓ Gentle physical body movements
✓ Detailed breath practices
✓ A short meditation
We recommend attending this series live. However, a recording will be made available if you are not able to attend at the scheduled time.

About the instructor: Rai Lowe
Rae Lowe began practicing yoga while teaching fitness classes and found the balancing effects of yoga immediately. She has studied locally with Jenny Hayo, Anne Phyfe Palmer, Jo Leffingwell, Melina Meza, and nationally with Shiva Rae, Tias Little, Rod Stryker, Shari Friedrichsen, Sarah Powers, and JinSung. Rai has been teaching since 2001 and holds 500-RYT and RPYT certifications. Her 500 hour and Prenatal training were completed through 8 Limbs Yoga Centers and her 200 hour training was completed through Samadhi Yoga in Seattle, Washington. She has worked in several diverse settings – yoga studios, fitness clubs, elementary schools, corporate offices, and universities and colleges. This has given her the opportunity to teach an array of classes – Vinyasa, Yin, Gentle, Intro, Family and Kid Yoga, Prenatal/Postnatal, Partner Yoga, and Meditation. She leads the Bellevue College 200-hour RYS Teacher Training Program, teaches Prenatal Yoga for 200-hour Teacher Trainings, and leads Yoga Workshops and Retreats.
Rae encourages all levels of students to truly tune in and listen to their bodies, be curious and enjoy discovering varied options (by modifying or challenging) in their practices each day. Showing up on our mat with whatever we are facing, allows us to take what we learn during our sadhana (practice) to other aspects of our lives. It is here that we can discover and create the many ways of letting balance unfold in our lives. Rai supports students in this unfolding by weaving in yoga philosophy with a focus on stability and fluidity within the physical body, breath and mind.
