The Healing Power of Pranayama ~
Breath, Mind and Body Balance with Amy Cooper
December 17, 3-5 pm; Cost: $20 pre-reg by 12/9, $25 after
In the view of yoga the body is a combination of two important elements. One is the life force- Prana Shakti and the other is the mental force- Chitta Shakti. Since we are a composition of prana and chitta, when these two inner forces are balanced, life is more peaceful. In this spacious, extended class you will come to explore the breath and how it influences and supports your physical and mental well-being. Learn breathing techniques (Pranayama) to move the life energy in your body to flow more beneficially as well as contemplative practices for mental freedom and equanimity.
