Shut Up + Breathe: Pranayama Workshop

A steady breath leads to a steady mind. Specially designed to revitalize and recharge both body and mind, the "Shut Up + Breathe: Pranayama Workshop" empowers you with the practice of breathing techniques that you can integrate into your daily routine.

 

Explore the world of yoga through the lens of pranayama – ancient yogic breathing techniques handed down over the ages. “Prana” means “breath” or “life force”. “Yama” means “control”. Therefore pranayama means “controlling the breath or life force”.

 

In this 2 hour workshop, you will learn breathing techniques used to create mind-body connection, relieve stress, control your moods, fight disease and go deeper in your meditation. 

Pranayama is the fourth stage of Patanjali’s 8-Limbed (or Ashtanga) approach to yoga. Many people these days are already very familiar with the third stage: Asana, the physical practice. This workshop is a bridge to experiencing the next level, a world of yoga that is more subtle, more inward, more intuitive.

 

Throughout this workshop, we will look at:

 

  • a combination of different pranayama breathing exercises (ie alternate nostril breathing, Wim Hof, humming bee breath, ujjayi, and more)

  • bandhas (locks) and how to apply them

  • how to apply these breathing techniques back into the physical asana practice and everyday life

The aim is to leave you with the tools you need to begin cultivating a stronger feeling of bliss, intuition, and union with the self.
