Join me for a weekend of breathing and asana. This course is ideal for you if you are interested in how breathing practices can help to organize the body within yoga postures. We will combine lecture and practice so you can immediately apply what you learn. You will also receive the course recordings for 14 days after the event.
An emphasis on breathing is central to the practice of yoga. Where most pranayama practices are promoted for their physiological responses and nervous system regulation, the breathing practices in this course are examined for their effects on the pressure systems of the body. Join Jules Mitchell for a unique discussion on the anatomy and mechanics of breathing and how it can influence posture, pain, and even range of motion. Put the theories in action by exploring how different breathing approaches within the poses create profound results.
