Pranayama means “to extend and direct the life force energy.” Pranayama calms the nervous system, stretches the breath, and focuses the mind. The balancing effect of pranayama techniques can either calm an anxious state or energize a lethargic state, depending on an individual’s condition. In this workshop, Yogiraj Wendy Newton will share some of the basic Pranayama techniques from the ISHTA 200-hour Teacher Training which can serve to enhance your living and support a daily meditation practice. Come expecting to learn more about the techniques shared every day in ISHTA classes. This workshop is open to beginners and people of all levels.
