WORKSHOP Pranayama

with Robin Duryea

pranayamaThe breath is what carries our prana, or vital life energy, and ushers us into the ebb and flow of life where we unlock the mysteries of the heart.

In breath we receive and experience the feelings of peace, joy, love, and truth. Although they are always within us, they can be difficult to access due to trauma or stressful life experience.

In Yoga we are introduced to the concept of Samskaras. These are deeply rooted habits that live in the subconscious, often guiding our choices without our awareness. This may keep us in patterns of living that do not serve us, but actually create blockages from accessing and living from our hearts center- from our truth.In this pranayama workshop we will use a technique referred to as Pranic Breathing, a simple yet profound breathing technique, to gain insight into the deeper parts of ourselves. Using Pranic Breathing, we bring to light much of what we’ve left in the dark and allow for the experience of Moksha, or liberation.Please come in comfortable, cozy clothes and bring a pen and notebook.
