Pranayama is a foundational practice of both the Ashtanga and Hatha schools of Yoga that prepares the body, nervous system, and mind for one-pointed concentration, leading to deeper levels of realizations about oneself. In the majority of yoga classes that one currently encounters in the West, there is typically more emphasis on asana and less on pranayama, and so we miss out on one of the most important, transformative practices of Yoga.
This training will give you a grounding in practicing and teaching traditional pranayamas, kriyas, and mudras. It will be conducted on Zoom, can be attended in-person in NYC, and will be available by replay for those in different time zones. Upon the successful completion of this course, participants will receive a Pranayama Teacher Certification from the Yoga Education Collective.
