The Ecstatic Journey Within: Pranayama & Meditation

August 24 - August 25

Are you ready to deepen your yoga practice? Pranayama (breath practice) and dharana (meditation) are ancient yogic practices dating back thousands of years, and are still a cornerstone of yoga practice today. They teach us how to balance our energy, reduce stress and anxiety, and engage in a journey of self-discovery.

In this illuminating weekend workshop, you’ll be immersed in these ancient teachings and learn where these practices originated, how they fit into the yoga path, and how to practice (and teach) them with skill and intention. Led by Meera Dhawan (500 RYT), who grew up immersed in these teachings, this deep dive will include an understanding of:

  1. how pranayama and dharana are connected to ancient Vedic philosophy and the Eight Limbs of Yoga
  2. the relationship between breath, the nervous system, and the mind
  3. specific techniques like sama vritti & nadi shodhana
  4. how to create a personalized practice of movement, breath, and meditation
  5. how to teach these practices safely in studio classes (for yoga teachers)


All levels of experience are welcome! If possible, please do some light physical movement before class and avoid eating a heavy meal 2-3 hours before. Please bring a yoga mat and a notebook or something to write with.

This event is in-person at NOPA studio. This module provides 12 contact hours toward Folk’s 300-hour Yoga Teacher Training certification with Yoga Alliance, or 12 CEUs if you are already a registered yoga teacher. Gain unlimited access to all Folk teacher trainings, workshops, and classes with our Yoga School All Access Membership.
