Pranayama & Mantra Workshop - Online
With Moena de Jong
30 May 2020 Go to schedule
In this online workshop, you will learn more about the background and theory of the magical power of Prana. Moena will teach you the practice of several breathing techniques that will both ground you and uplift you.
When we practice Pranayama regularly we are actively maintaining our level of health. Underlying this is the energetic aspect, by learning to control the breath you are learning to extend the Prana or life force, this is what pranayama is all about. Our nervous system, endocrine system, etc, are all affected by prana, and pranayama is a key aspect to sustaining health. We can also practice pranayama to overcome a karmic element.
Pranayama is the bridge between the outer and inner sensory responses - it takes us inwards, and the mudras and bandhas deepen the effect of the pranayama. These techniques induce pratyahara (sensory withdrawal) and lead us through from outer awareness to inner awareness, as the mind becomes more and more focused, it results in Dharana (concentration).
We close the session with meditative Mantra's. Chanting is a pleasure that transcends the senses, it takes us beyond the bounds of time and space (which is why we don’t have to understand the mantra). Thus it soothes in a most profound way. It soothes on a cellular level. It merges our finite identity with the infinite, and so dissolves us. It relieves us from the sights and sounds and stimulation of the material world and delivers us into a spiritual space.
A real treat for body, mind & soul!
In the online format, the teacher will guide you through the online application ‘Zoom’. Zoom is a live streaming platform with many interactive features - it provides a shared space for students, teachers, and assistants. Delight Yoga has been using Zoom to organise live-streamed classes, workshops, and training days and we have had very positive experiences with it.
Zoom allows you to participate in the training from home, but you can ask questions and connect with teachers and other students as if you were in the same physical location.
