BREATHING EXERCISES - PRANAYAMA

Have you noticed how none of us really Breathe Properly?

Not breathing properly can lead to various health problems over a period of time.

With Pranayama, or, yoga breathing, it is possible to increase the capacity of our lungs to inhale more oxygen, and supply to the body.

You will learn how to breathe slowly and deeply.

There are many kind of Breathing exercises in Yoga. Some are meant to increase your 'Agni' or digestive fire. A good example is kriyas like Ujjayi Breathing, or, Kapalbhatti.

Other breathing exercises like alternate nose breathing with Vishnu 'Mudra', also known as Alom Vilom can help center and calm you, increase your oxygen intake, and, help you with issues like Asthma, Stress, Insomnia, Headaches, Chronic Fatigue.

Prana literally means LIFE FORCE or 'chi'. By drawing the 'chi' or prana from our envirnoment, and breathing properly - we can increase our 'life' expenctancy.

Breathing exercises, or, Pranayama can reduce toxins, help digestion, increase metabolism, develop mental clarity and help achieve a state of deep relaxation and peace.

We combine the breathing exercises with Mantras, visualization techniques, yoga mudras, or premordial sounds that can help balance and center you.

All classes are private.
