About This Event
Relax, recharge, and recover your natural peace and ease.
There is a saying: “Pain is unavoidable, but suffering is optional.” So much depends on our attitude, approach, and the tools that we use.
The yogic breathing techniques enhance physical health and mental well-being. With regular practice, pranayama can open a portal to a state of supreme peace and joy.
In this workshop, you will explore the underlying cause of all suffering and how pranayama (breathing practices) can be a tool to overcome it. You will refine and deepen your practice of the various yogic breathing techniques and utilize deep relaxation (Yoga Nidra), pranic (life force energy) healing visualization, and meditation to amplify the benefits.
As Sri Swami Satchidananda says: “There is no better health tonic than Yoga asanas and pranayama. Health is your birthright, not disease; strength is your heritage, not weakness; courage, not fear; bliss, not sorrow; peace, not restlessness; knowledge, not ignorance.”
