Pranayama is the science of quieting the mind through breathing practices. Our breathing happens all day, every day of our lives, on its own, and rarely do we pay attention to it. But every once in a while, it’s a good thing to do, because it shifts our perceptive awareness inwards. Pranayama is the practice of paying attention to how we breath, and to using purposeful changes of our breathing patterns to quiet the nervous system, slow down the speed of the mind, and expand our ability to breath better, and maximize something that nature has given us already–the power of breath.
This is a 30-minute class. All levels are welcome, thought it could possibly be too basic for someone with a lot of pranayama experience, but useful for someone who is either new to this practice or has a little bit of experience.
