Pranayama classes offer a set of simple breathing techniques which help to cleanse and stabilizing body and mind. With a regular Pranayama practise, more vital energy is made available for the body and mind. The breath begins to flow more freely, providing access to deeper states of meditation. The digestive system and lungs are stimulated and cleansed, the mind becomes clear and calm, the nervous system strengthened. You will feel vital, awake and content as your body's energy system is balanced.
The practise of Pranayama is highly recommended in addition to a regular Yoga Asana (postures) practice, in any style of yoga. It will help you deepen your awareness of the breath and the body, which will then benefit your yoga practice. This Pranayama class offers a simple and safe set of practices, combining Kriyas (cleansing techniques) with specific Pranayama techniques, concentration, meditation and mantra, all based on the teachings of Paul Dallaghan and of Pranayama Master Sri O.P. Tiwari, head of the Kaivalyadham Research Institute near Mumbai, India. All levels are welcome.
Yoga & Pranayama
In this class we combine Yoga with circular breathing. The yogic exercises kriyas, and postures in this class are tools and pointers to recognize our True Nature of unchanging peace. It will vary from yin and yang to kundalini inspired yoga. Circular breathing is a dynamic and intense breathing technique that helps to release stress and tension from our bodies and will help us to break free from limiting thought patterns. For a few minutes we will breathe through the mouth in a connected way (for at least 2 rounds). Through the full in-breath a lot of life-energy will be gained and through a relaxed out-breath tension will be released. Silence and deep contentment will be revealed. We will finish the class with meditation.
We are very happy and honoured to announce that Sri Sudhir Tiwari is coming back to Amsterdam for a whole weekend of teachings. We are grateful for his precious time that he is willing to spend with us.
In this workshop, we will come together to explore the possibilities of a breathing technique called Circular Breathing. During this technique, we remove the pauses between the in- and exhalation and the ex- and inhalation.
Through a simple and deep breathing technique – rebirthing – you will experience total relaxation, surrender, and ecstasy! You will reconnect with your body and any tensions will be disappearing from your body with tingling sensations.
