Breathing Lite and Restoring Prana with Robin Rothenberg

Prana is the animating force that supports and sustains us — akin to the concept of ‘qi’ in Chinese Medicine. Cultivating a rich reservoir of prana is the essential goal of yoga practice and pranayama the primary tool to actualize it. It is the containment of prana that enables our vitality to thrive. This requires us to train ourselves to need less breath — not more. Robin’s new book, Restoring Prana: A Therapeutic Guide to Pranayama and Healing Through the Breath, for Yoga Therapists, Yoga Teachers and Healthcare Practitioners is launching in late 2019!

Yoga therapy practices are precisely adapted for people who suffer from chronic pain or illness to respect their limitations. Work with Robin in a group setting, individually, or in a personalized breathing lite workshop.
