Pranayama is the science of quieting the mind through breathing practices. Our respiratory process happens automatically, each minute of the day, every day of our lives. However, rarely do we pay attention to it. Through paying attention to how we breathe, we can adjust our breathing patterns to quiet the nervous system, slow down the speed of the mind, and expand our ability to breathe more fully and with ease. We begin to maximize something that nature has given us already–the power of breath.
This is a 30-minute, basic pranayama class. All levels are welcome.
