Pranayama is a yoga technique to enhance, deepen and control the breath through simple preparations and exercises. These sessions provide the foundations for a breathing practice that can be applied to your regular Ashtanga Yoga postures. The practice works at a physical, mental, emotional and energetic level, nourishing them all.

Special workshop: BREATH and ASANA

Friday 24 January, 18.00 – 20.00

£25/£23 Arlington members, concessions. Booking advised.

Breath is the essential component of any yoga practice. In this workshop we explore the effects of the breath in mind and body, experiencing the breath pattern in Sun Salutations and classic standing and seated postures. We will look at the principles of moving with the breath to achieve effortlessness and harnessing the breath to arrive at a relaxed state in the practice. There are many benefits to fine tuning the breath while moving, especially ease, stability and joy.

The session will finish with a relaxation to release the body through the breath. The class is suitable for practitioners of all levels of experience as well as other styles of yoga.

My training

I have been practicing Ashtanga yoga since 2013 and I am a teacher of this form. My teachers are Rosina Bonsu, Kia Naddermier, Radha Warrell and Pierre Seghir. I have also practiced under John Scott, Lino Miele, and Taylor Hunt, among others. Ashtanga shows me discipline, compassion, patience, and letting go.
