Fundamentals of Pranayama (Breath)

23/11/2016 at 20:00-14/12/2016 at 21:30

Pranayama (breath)

Wednesdays 20.00 – 21.30 hr
Dates: Nov. 23 & 30 & Dec. 7 & 14
With Eveline Torres

Do you find it challenging to breath deeply? Do you feel any tension in your throat, chest or abdomen? Learning to breath correctly is one of the most effective ways to build more strength, energy and inner peace. A wonderful tool for a healthy yoga practice and also very effective to reduce stress in daily life!

Content

The aim of this course is to introduce you to your own breathing through Pranayama exercises, Vayus’s (cleansing exercises) and Bandha’s (energy centers). After this course you will be able to synchronize your breathing with yoga postures. Even the more challenging yoga poses become lighter and easier for you. In addition, you will learn several techniques that you can practice at home.

  • Clear and detailed structure
  • Focus on Pranayama (breathing), Vayu (cleaning body) and Bandha (energy centers)
  • Activating energy which flows freely throughout the body, the nervous system and meridians (nadis)
  • Synchronization of breath and yoga postures
  • Handouts with exercises to take home

About the breath

We can breathe in many ways. Without careful observation we mostly breathe in the same way and we are not fully aware of our bodies. The Pranayama exercises bring calmness and strength without using force.We explore the effect of inhaling, exhaling and the transition between the two. We look at different ways to do this and discover the effects on our mind, our body and on our asanas. Breathing is the connection between the physical body and the physical mind.

For example:
Inhale and hold your breath. Count the number of thoughts you have. It will not be so many. It is very difficult to think without breathing. The mind gets slower. So you experience that by simply breathing more slowly you can affect the intensity and quantity of your thoughts.
(From the book: The Heart of Yoga ,Orit Sen-Gupta)

All levels

Beginners and (more) advanced are both welcome. You will have personal support, so you can practice at your own level. For those who have previously attended a Pranayama course, you will get the opportunity to go a step further by practicing the exercises on a deeper level.
