Pranayama is defined as the conscious control or expansion of the breath. It is a subtle and quiet practice that has powerful benefits. It can be a wonderful addition to your asana practice. 
 
 
One of the most important aspects of the practice from the very beginning until the more advanced stages is that you be relaxed, quiet, and receptive. Will power has its place in the practice of asana but not in the practice of pranayama.” 
- John Schumacher, Senior CIYT
 
 
The practice of pranayama: 
  • Increases energy
  • Strengthens memory
  • Pacifies and eliminates stress from the body
  • Improves circulation and releases toxins
  • Calms and strengthens the nervous system in order for you o handle the every day stresses of life
  • Transforms emotions stuck in the mind and body that keep us anxious and disturbed
  • Fosters a peaceful and tranquil mind
 
Each class will begin and end with a deep relaxation to put the brain in a receptive state. A few familiar supportive poses will be taught to prepare the body. The prop set up will be taught so you will be equipped to begin practice on your own. 
 
6 months yoga experience required to attend

Conscious Connected Breathwork

Meets the following Sunday afternoons from 1-3pm:
March 29
April 19

Conscious Connected Breathwork / is a safe and powerful breathing process that releases tension from the body, freeing it, so that we may live to our highest vision and unlimited potential. The breath is the ultimate healer. It is the umbilical cord to the divine. By using a variety of smoothly connected breaths, energy which may be called Prana, Chi or Ki, or life force, is taken into the body dissolving and washing away anything that is contrary to life. When this takes place we become aware of our blocks and what has been holding us back; an inner cleansing occurs. Teacher: Daniel Lamontagne

Class fee: $35 per class
