Yoga and Movement Classes

Pranayama Breath workshop Vancouver WAGuided 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.

Please note:

  • 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.

Level = All
Intensity/Exertion = Low

Note that “Breathwork” is known by many names, including pranayama, conscious breathing, heliotropic breathwork and rebirthing.

Student Guidelines

Many students prefer to own their own mat, although we do have mats in the studio you're welcome to use.  (Mats are available for purchase as well.)

Some students are very scent-sensitive; therefore, we ask that you kindly not wear perfume, cologne or heavy scents in class.

Please remove your shoes upon entering the studio (symbolic of leaving your 'troubles' at the door) and bring clean, bare feet to your practice time.  Wearing socks is optional, but you will want to remove them during standing poses for safety.

Feel free to wear comfortable clothes that allow you to move and stretch without restriction.

You may want to avoid eating anything except a light snack/meal for about one hour prior to your class.

You will also want to bring a water bottle into the classroom.
