The Sanskrit word prana translates roughly as “life force,” and–ayama means to lengthen, stretch, or extend. As a practice, pranayama is a specific, intentionally induced pattern of breathing that sharpens concentration and brings inner balance. One of the eight limbs of yoga, pranayama brings you to the doorway of meditation.
9 week Pranayama Class with Linda Oshins
In this series of classes, you will settle into a deep contemplation of the breath and then begin practicing a series of techniques that will vary with each class. Discussion will be kept to a minimum so that the energetic experience of the pranayama practice isn’t diminished. For the last class in the series, there will be time for questions, answers and general discussion.
This series is open to all students, beginning to advanced. When advisable, Linda will give various modification on techniques so that everyone has a session suited to them.
If you want a led pranayama practice, if you want a breath meditation practice, if you wish to explore how breath practices effect mood and energy level or how pranayama effects your established sitting meditation or iRest practice, this is the class for you!
Prior to the start of the class, you will receive a call in number and instructions on joining the call group.
Tuesdays, 11:00a to 11:45a, Begins 4/19/16
