Pranayama and Meditation Weekend Workshop

August 24 to August 25


10:30am-4:30pm, with an hour lunch break

On the first day of this two day workshop we will explore Pranayama. Pranayama is the ancient practice of controlling the breath through specific breathing techniques. Prana means “life-force” and we will explore through various breathing practices how we can control, enhance and shift the prana or energy in the body. A regular pranayama practice can increase lung capacity, vitality and overall well-being.


In this workshop we will learn the following:


~Learn and practice various pranayama practices including nadi shodhana, ujjayi, kapalabhati, shitali, deerga swasm, 2:1 breathing, and Kumbhaka.

~Understanding the energetic calming, balancing or energizing effects of pranayama practices.

~Incorporating Pranayama into an asana practice and meditation.

~ Effectively locating and utilizing the bandhas (energy-locks) during pranayama.





10:30am-4:30pm, with an hour lunch break

On the second day we will experience different meditation practices other than pranayama including:

~Mantra or Japa Meditation

~Silent Meditative Walk

~Chakra Meditation

~Gazing Meditation (Trataka)
