“The Ashtanga Yoga practice is a breathing practice, the rest is just bending” – Sri K Pattabhi Jois. Breath is the most vital process in the entire body and at the very heart of the Astanga yoga practice. This workshop will help us to better understand our breath. We will break down and build up the breathing technique, and practice simple breath work and basic pranayamas to deepen our control of the breath. You will learn a simple pranayama sequence, that can open the door to new possibilities within the practice of Ashtanga yoga, and guide towards the state of meditation. Price kr. 150. Pre-registration is required.
