Restore Your Prana

May 16 @ 10:00 AM - May 17 @ 5:00 PM


$275 on/before April 29/$325 after April 30
Prana is the animating life force that supports and sustains us – akin to the concept ‘chi’ or ‘qi’. According to yoga and ayurvedic teachings, it is the healthy flow of prana that regulates emotions, circulation, digestion, and even immunity. When our prana is leaking, we are more prone to allergies, anxiety, depression, brain fog, congestion, and sleep disruption. We may even experience more pain in our bodies!

Mastering the flow of prana is paramount to the practice of yoga – and the key to the mastery of prana lies in the regulation of the breath. This is often held out as the purview of only a select, enlightened few. However, Robin has researched the scientific basis of these ancient principles of prana and brings forward Western scientific studies and practices that validate and replicate the Vedic teachings. She offers them in readily accessible ways to help us regular folk experience the healing potency of the breath.

In this workshop you will learn:

The difference between functional and dysfunctional breathing patterns
Why the practice of deep breathing may do more harm than good in the long-run
How the respiratory system can uniquely be harnessed to promote health
Breathing techniques that support structural integrity and stability
Why learning to breathe less is the essence of pranayama

Best of all, you will learn simple, daily breathing practices that will immediately promote better sleep, aid digestion, support clarity of mind, and a sense of calm. This course is both educational and experiential. It is guaranteed to transform the way you experience the breath forever!
