Precision, Purification & Pranayama

ASHTANGA FOUNDATIONS III: Precision, Purification and Pranayama
SATURDAY, 1:30pm-3:00pm


This class is devoted to the central role breathing plays in attaining success in practice. This class will utilize breathing exercises, retention, and discussion to help you better understand how and why you want to centralize your awareness on breath during practice.

We’ll study how to use breathing to build powerful strength in your asanas and to effect nadi shodana, purification of the pranic channels. Prana Vidya, knowledge of prana, helps you to progress towards subtlety as you concentrate your mind and better direct the power of the internalized prana. We’ll discuss how cleansing is not limited to the tapas that you create during practice, but rather how purification is a central theme that encompasses all aspects of your life. We’ll explore how to access awareness of your more subtle energy channels through breathing and how to better direct this energy both on and off the mat.
