These classes are for those who are complete pranayama beginners, practitioners who have done pranayama but don’t have a regular practice, or for those who have a yoga or meditation practice and want to delve deeper – all are welcome.
The breath is key to Ashtanga yoga practice. It allows for the deepening of postures and enhances their benefits. During the course, each session will build on what you know and will develop the tools and techniques required to help you set, refine and sustain an individual pranayama practice.
During these sessions you will:
• Learn about the breath – to observe it, to follow it and to enhance it
• Learn to deepen your breath, allowing you to become more aware and mindful, calm and focused
• Learn preparations and purification techniques that will help to boost the benefits of pranayama
• Learn more about how this practice relates to the Ashtanga yoga system

Thank you for setting me on this path.
–Jane, on my pranayama class
You have made this really accessible. It has come along at the right time for me. I am loving it. So much so I am even practicing on my own.
–Liz, on my pranayama class
As her husband I’m obviously biased BUT I am also the only person who knows how incredibly dedicated Laura is to the daily practice of yoga.
