Yoga & Pranayama. Breath is our most elemental form of life and unites all of humanity yet we think little about it. The ancient yogis dedicated great thought to it and in so doing developed intricate methods of harnessing breath to gain control of the mind and to see the world with greater clarity. This class will delve into the unseen realms of mystical yogic breathing and the magical internal energy valves known as bandhas. There is much confusion surrounding these powerful tools and the part they play in the regulation and control of pranic flow. David will share information he gained directly from K. Pattabhi Jois as well as a series of practical exercises he has developed himself. Through partner work, discussion and specialized techniques participants will gain new insights and useful tools for personal practice and daily life. David will end the class by leading a session of classical pranayama and breath control. The prana is awaiting your arrival!
