What is a pranayama practice? What does it mean to sit with your breath every day? What impact can this have on your life?
This 4-week series of online workshops will lead you through a pranayama practice. Taught to a maximum of 4 people at one time, this workshop series will teach you about pranayama, but more than that will walk you through the practice. In addition to the 4 hour-long weekly sessions, you will be expected to practice the techniques at least twice each day (this works out to about 30 minutes each day). There will also be some reading to do (but not too much).
Taking this course is a commitment!
So, you'd really like to take this course, but your morning CP isn't high enough? Well, depending on the time between now and the start of the course, it's likely that you can work to increase your CP. Fill out the application, be honest about your CP, and we can have a conversation about whether this course is right for you right now, what can be done to get you ready for it, or other options that might be better for you.
What if you have one (or more) of the health concerns listed in the application? Again, let me know, we can talk about why or why not this course would be good for you to take at this time, and what some options might be.
I want to make sure that you are getting the course that will be helpful, and not some training that will make you feel sick, be harmful for you, or stimulate your nervous system in a way that's detrimental to you.
