Most forms of hatha yoga emphasize the second limb of yoga, Asana (yoga poses) and only the most basic yogic breathing techniques are employed. Pranayama, the fourth limb of yoga, is the practice of regulating the breath in order to affect deep physical and psychological changes. Thus, by working more consciously with the breath, yoga students can take their practice to the next level.
Join Darren John Main for a two-day Pranic Breathing workshop starting on Friday, February 21 from 6:30 pm to 10:00 pm at Tranquil Space, Dupont.
During this workshop, we will learn ancient breathing technique know in our modern culture as Pranic Breathing. In the context of a safe and supported environment, this simple yet powerful technique invites us to release mental, emotional blocks and to reconnect with the foundation of any yoga practice—the breath. As you practice this yogic breathing technique, you will have access to very deep levels of the mind and energy body allowing for the release of blockages that restrict the flow of prana (life energy) causing disease and imbalance on every level of our being.
In part one we will experience an advanced pranayama technique designed to free long-held physical, emotional, mental and energetic blocks. Part two of this workshop will explore the mechanics of breathing and how to safely instruct yoga student in a variety of pranayama techniques. Both part one and part two are well suited for yoga teachers, those who wish to teach and student who wish to dramatically deepen their practice.
Part 1: Friday, February 21, 6:30-10:00pm
Part 2: Saturday, February 22, 4:00-7:30pm
You can sign up for one or both days and continuing education units (CE) are available for yoga teachers upon successful completion and per request. For more information see the TS event scheduler here.
