Practicing the 4th Limb: The Pranayama Experience

Breathing is primal. We don't actually need to think about it. But when we do, we open up inner space in our lungs, ribs and spine. Did you know that 80% of your lung capacity is actually in your back? As the fourth limb of the eight-limbed yoga practice, pranayama, or breath optimization, is basically the yogi super power. This workshop will give you the tools to map your breath and introduce traditional yogic breathing techniques. In addition to promoting healthy lung function, breathing well can also have dramatic effects on one's emotional state and nervous system. If you get to know your breath, you unlock the ability to soothe, energize and sustain yourself despite stressful circumstances.
