Mobility & Yogic Breathing Techniques
START DATE: 7th April – 12th May – 6:45 – 7:30 am – Live Stream (Via Zoom)
Who is this course for
This course is for anyone who wish to improve their breathing techniques and/or learn how to breath properly!
What is this course about
Laghusamudiranatva is a Sanskrit means ‘mobility of the body’ and Pranayama (in yoga) loosely means the regulation of the breath through certain techniques and exercises.
This course explores how you can increase the capacity of your lungs through certain breathing practices. This course also helps you increase your immunity and lung capacity. There are many types of yogic breathing methods and techniques and we will explore 3-4 of these in this course.
What happens during a session
In order to move the prana in your body, we need to move the body first. Instead of going through a vigorous Asana or a series of yogic postures, you will be taken through a yogic body opening series to help you get ready to sit for your Pranayama practice!
Why we practice early morning
It is done early mornings to include a particular type of breath work to stimulate and detox your digestive system.
It is also best to do this sort of a practice on an empty stomach when the mind is calm and able to focus before the body gets busy with digesting food!
How to prepare for this session
Please have some warm water as soon as you wake up to flush your system if possible. If you can avoid coffee or tea prior to your practice it would be better but not necessary!
What to bring
You will need a Yoga Mat, blanket/s, a comfortable cushion and/or Bolster to sit on or a chair if you prefer!
What not to do during practice
Try to be still during the actual Pranayama practice. This is very hard to do and it is a skill to be still! This is your practice to take charge of the fluctuations of your mind! And this very practice is the essential goal of Yoga!
