In this 10-day training you get the tools to teach pranayama in yoga classes, pranayama classes and with private clients. This course also explores both gross and subtle physiology, the multidimensional self through the model of the Koshas, the Nadis, and how the life force works within such models and structures. We will also delve into how to use pranayama techniques in a therapeutic setting.
Each morning following the Pranayama practice, we will study the pranayama techniques practiced that morning. You will learn what the bandhas are and how they work, and how to add the practice of MUDRAS and MANTRAS to enhance and empower pranayama practice.
