Guided Breathwork (Pranayama) is a class for open-minded, open-hearted explorers of consciousness who are interested in discovering new ways of looking at things in life.
Each class is different and the instructor will focus on exercises such as meditations, visualizations, processes, and conscious breathing that will serve us in our continued growth and in overcoming our limitations.
- Most of these classes will focus on breath work. Please be sure you are in good health (no colds or flu), since we may also be using nostril breathing, which is difficult if congested. In addition to the energetic benefits, breath work can have tremendous circulatory and immune function benefits. But it can also be unfamiliar and at times mildly uncomfortable, especially if you’ve never taken the time to fully experience your breath. This is a great, low stress opportunity to explore your breath more deeply, and learn how it can impact you and the world around you.
- If you have a respiratory condition, including COPD, please consult with your doctor before enrolling in a breath-centered session.
