Pranayama

Prāṇāyāma

‘Prāṇāyāma’ means the control of energy through the breath. Generally speaking, it is the regulation of inhalation, exhalation and retention of the breath, while maintaining constant awareness and concentration. 

Some of the main benefits of practising pranayama include mental calmness, reduced anxiety, respiratory health and energetic balance. 

Techniques include full yogic breath, rhythmic breathing, alternate nostril breathing (nadi shodhana), cooling pranaymas (shitali and sitkari), longer breathing and vowel prāṇāyāma. 

We offer guided group prāṇāyāma sessions. The prāṇāyāma techniques offered at each class will depend on the needs and experience of the class. 

‘I took a deep breath and listened to the old bray of my heart:
I am, I am, I am.’
