Introduction to Pranayama

Interested in breathwork but not sure where to start? This class is for you! This class will define Pranayama and lead you through some basic breathing exercises, a way of harnessing your breath that results in calming the mind. Pranayama is especially helpful to clear and still the mind in preparation for meditation. Begin by becoming aware of your breath, connecting and anchoring you in the present moment. You will learn alternate nostril breathing, which is a basic practice that helps to balance the right and left side of the brain, bringing you to a neutral, balanced state in preparation for meditation. You will then move into rhythmic breathing, a deeply relaxing and meditative Pranayama, then finish with a sweet and simple guided meditation. Return to this practice as often as you like to create balance, peace and calm.
