Course Description

  • Understand the workings of your respiratory system and how your central nervous system is affected by your breath.
  • Develop and refine your breathing with practice of different pranayama techniques.
  • Discover and break old patterns and habits through the practice of advanced techniques: Kapalabhati, Bhastrika and powerful variations of these two breaths
  • Learn the purpose of the Bandhas (energetic seals), and engage in practice of these profound additions to pranayama.
  • Investigate the subtle energy of pranayama and begin to sense the difference between breath and prana.
  • Connect the philosophical writings on this subject with the larger purpose of pranayama practice through brief study of selected sutras, the Prajna Upanishad and selection of the Bhagavad Gita.
  • Create a personal pranayama practice that will help you sustain and grow at your own pace.

This training is perfect for:

  • Yoga Teachers who would like to develop their own skills as practitioners.
  • Yoga Teachers who would like to offer more pranayama in their classes.
