The conscious breathing practices of yoga have historically been thought of as mainly esoteric theory within the mainstream society. Thankfully, scientists and researchers have been studying these practices and have been able to prove the incredible benefits that conscious breathing has on our overall health and well being, beyond the scope of a classical yoga practice.
In this workshop, Debbie Parsons will share valuable information behind the breathing practices within the ancient philosophy of yoga in the hopes of opening a door to better understanding and therefore a better experience with conscious breathing techniques. There will be both lecture and practice in this workshop, breaking down the common yoga breathing practices as well as experiencing a complete “pranayama” practice.
You will want to where comfortable clothing, bring layers if you tend to get cold easily, and have a moderately empty stomach.
