This immersion of Pranayama and Meditation education is part of our Advanced Training Program and is building on the first module of Pranayama and Meditation (level 1). The Course is meant to develop pranayama practitioners that have already established themselves in the method. The aim is to help each individual move forward in their understanding of the art of breathing, while developing the confidence to help others.
The practice becomes more personal and designed specifically to each yogi with great opportunities to work closely with our teachers. We will go into details around the spiritual techniques of pranayama, like the mighty Bhastrika, and will develop the retention (holding) of the breath. As well as pranayama this course will draw heavily on the Buddhist traditions of meditation, mindfulness and loving kindness practices. Students will learn how to combine all these different and profound elements of seated practice in a way that works best for them. Movement and asana will also be included.
Specific topics that will be addressed during the 3 days:
-Deeper understanding of breathing anatomy and how it relates to pranayama
-Textual references on pranayama
-History of hathayoga with a special focus on pranayama and meditation
-Contemplation/Loving kindness practices
-Introduction to Vipassana
-Psychology of meditation
-How and when to move on in pranayama
-Asana done as spiritual practice
