PRANAYAMA

Pranayama techniques are traditional practices which involve breath control and awareness. By practicing Pranayama we are clearing energetic obstacles and allowing breath and energy (prana) to flow freely. Prana means ‘life force or energy’ and Ayama can translate as ‘expansion or extension’. When we practice Pranayama techniques we are working to expand our life force energy. At Yoga Within you will find Pranayama taught in all our Hatha classes and interwoven throughout many of our other classes.

Keep an eye out for courses, mini retreats and masterclasses on these wonderfully life enhancing techniques and other ways to increase health, contentment, motivation and creativity.
