The Power of Breath
1618779600000 - 1618786800000
Our breath is our most portable and powerful tool for managing stress and anxiety. Notice how the breath changes when we're feeling stressed, anxious or worried, compared with feeling relaxed, joyful or just doing routine activities. "If a certain state of mind results in a certain mode of breathing, then conversely, by consciously adopting a mode of breathing, we can evoke the corresponding state of mind"—Swami Rama in "Science of Breath." In this practical and experiential workshop, we'll learn the basics of how to use the breath in and out of yoga class. We'll also learn how to develop a personal practice to bring a little extra calm, clarity, focus and energy into your daily life. We'll conclude with a guided deep relaxation allowing us to connect with what the yogis call our energetic body or the pranamaya kosha, setting us up for a good night's rest and focused week ahead.
