Illuminating the Vital Body: A 4 Week Pranayama Series
Where asana is a physical practice that primarily addresses our physical body, pranayama is a method of consciously controlling the breath that addresses our energetic body. Considered the link between body, mind and spirit, the breath provides us access to the areas of the body and mind that might not be fully conscious. Because working with the breath allows us to tap into the subtle energy channels that underlie our physical structure, results of a regular pranayama practice can include clearing energetic blockages, feeling energized internally while also settled, and the mind becoming more light, at ease, and clear.
In this four-week series we will explore the meaning and purpose of pranayama and learn one of Viniyoga’s basic structures for pranayama, the ratio of inhale, retention, exhale, suspension. Designed to for you to progress in your pranayama over the four-week course, you will have opportunity to develop your own daily practice and experience the value it will provide for you when you do it consistently. There will be opportunity for journaling, conversation and plenty of adaptations to ensure that the pranayama you practice always feels accessible, non-straining and sustainable. Each class will include some gentle movement before the guided pranayama practice.
