Pranayama

 

Join Krissa as she shares her daily pranayama and meditation practice with you. Purposefully kept short, at just 30 minutes, the aim of this class is to show you how easy it is to start building a personal practice at home and how transformative it can be to set aside just a few minutes in your day to breathe - consciously, and with purpose. 

“Prana” means “breath” or “life force”. “Yama” means “control”. Therefore pranayama means “controlling the breath or life force”.

Pranayama is the fourth stage of Patanjali’s 8-Limbed approach to yoga. The full ladder being: Yama, Niyama, Asana, Pranayama, Dharana, Dhyana, Samadhi. Many people these days are already very familiar with the third stage: Asana, the physical practice. This class is a way to begin experiencing the next level, a world of yoga that is more subtle, more inward, more intuitive.

If you want to go deeper into your practice, this is one of the ways that can help you get there.
