The Vital Breath

In this 2nd level training, students will build upon their existing skill set as practitioners of pranayama. Over the two days of training, students will enhance their practice of advanced techniques including the implementation of breath retention and suspension; the use of energetic seals, and variations of alternate nostril breathing. Through lecture, active practice and observation, students will explore various breathing ratios and discover what impact these ratios have on their own physiology. Students will discover how adding mudras and mantras to their pranayama practice can deepen the awareness of prana and the subtle energy of the body. Students will have the opportunity to enrich their asana and meditation practice through the complementary practice of pranayama.

This training is perfect for teachers and practitioners with a well established pranayama practice.

  • Understand the workings of your respiratory system and how your central nervous system is affected by your breath.

  • Develop and refine your breathing with practice of different pranayama techniques.

  • Discover and break old patterns and habits through the practice of advanced techniques: Kapalabhati, Bhastrika and powerful variations of these two breaths

  • Learn the purpose of the Bandhas (energetic seals), and engage in practice of these profound additions to pranayama.

  • Investigate the subtle energy of pranayama and begin to sense the difference between breath and prana.

  • Connect the philosophical writings on this subject with the larger purpose of pranayama practice through brief study of selected sutras and Upanishads
