The workshop will be a practical journey to experience the benefits of the traditional breathing techniques in our health and thinking. We will examine pranayama, its purpose, technique and benefits in-depth according both to classical yoga philosophy as well as how it is supported by modern science. The workshop will include personal pulse diagnosis to determine your individual practice recommendations.
