The Power of Pranayama in Yoga & Ayurveda

Thousands of years ago the yogis of ancient India created powerful techniques of breathing that transported human consciousness to domains beyond time and space. The Tantra yoga tradition enumerates between 12- 16 variations of these breathing techniques, however many of them have been excluded from commercial yoga classes because of their complexity and lack of understanding. Mas will share insights into these techniques and how they can be used to awaken kundalini and shakti or inherent power when prana is awakened in the mind-body complex. Come and discover the breathless state touted by great yogi adepts and climb the mystical ladder of higher consciousness. The workshop includes a review of main breathing forms and a transcendental breath journey.
