When we begin a yoga practice, one of the first lessons we learn is to breathe in and out through the nose. When there is lack of awareness on the breath, a challenging posture creates exhaustion and mental instability, and more times than not we end up more fragmented than when we came in, feeling better only momentarily because of increased endorphins and sweat.
Not only breathing does matter in yoga, but we have the ability to transform the energetics of our body and our mind thru proper adaptation of the breath, which will help us to feel steady and ready for pranayama techniques that will eventually lead us to meditation.
Objective: At the end of the workshop, participants will understand how to adapt the breath not only to move optimally into a posture, but also to unfold prana and the release of our greatest potential.
