Pranayama is the 4th limb in the Asthanga system of yoga and an integral part of yogic development.
Yoga practice is about creating a unity between the two forces of 'prana' and 'citta', or energy and consciousness.
Through pranayama practice we develop, strengthen and purify the flow of prana in our system to prepare us for entering the practice of dhyana, or meditation.
This workshop will introduce Pranayama as a practice to both rejuvenate the body and to explore the subtler realms of yoga.
