Course information

What is breathwork and pranayama?

There are many different yoga systems that embrace pranayama and breathwork and place it at the forefront of their teachings. However, within some Western yoga schools and to the detriment of the trainee teachers, breathing practices are often treated as an optional addition to asanas and their importance is overlooked and downplayed.

Pranayama is the fourth limb in Patanjali’s eight limbs of yoga and is thus a vital part of an authentic, rewarding, and conscientious yoga practice. It is therefore vital to have access to comprehensive teaching within the sphere of the breath if one wants to unlock the full potential of their yoga practice but also, influence their health and their wellbeing.

Practicing pranayama and breathwork can have a transformative, healing, and calming influence on the body and mind. It can be used to change old patterns and cultivate vitality. Learning to balance the breath helps you to balance the mind and consequently your lives.
