Pranayama is composed of two Sanskrit words: “Prāna”, life force or vital energy; and “āyāma”, to extend, draw out, restrain, or control. It is the fourth limb of both Hatha Yoga & Raja Yoga, and one of the most critical elements of any yoga students practice. It serves as an important bridge between the outward practices of yoga (like asanas) and the internal practices that lead us into meditation and samadhi.
Dr. Rao will be teaching this workshop with the goal to leave students with a complete understanding of what Pranayama is, why we should do it, and how we should do it. It is suitable for both beginners and experienced yoga students.
