Breath accompanies us from the initial moment we come into the world – the simple and basic action of inhaling and exhaling air.
However, for the yogi the breath is a gate, as it connects the gross physical and subtle inner, the body and the mind.
As such, what is the breath that the yogi/ni is in search of? Is it just about the abstract process of intake and expulsion of air from the nostrils and nothing more?
And how does the understanding and familiarity with the breathing process lead us on our yoga journey?
Practicing yoga asana over time, regardless of method, without properly applying the knowledge and tools offered to us in Hatha Yoga, will impede progress and eventually lead to frustration and injury. Practicing yoga without a connection to breath is like swimming against the tide, trying to reach somewhere.
In this workshop we will shed light and dive deep into the process and importance of breathing, which involves an understanding of the Prana, the vayus and the bandhas. The breath will lead and guide us on our journey between dynamic and static sequences from the worlds of Hatha and Ashtanga Yoga.
Yoga practitioners with a good foundation in any yoga style are very welcome to join the workshop.
