Breathe Light to Breathe Right

The yogis said the breath should be as refined as a thin thread of cotton and barely perceptible as it exits the nose. 

Subtle, that’s how the original texts describe pranayama. 

Current studies on respiration demonstrate that efficient diaphragmatic breathing increases core stability, greater stress resilience, vitality and health. The challenge is in learning to breathe LESS NOT MORE!

If you are a yoga teacher or yoga therapist, this is a must-do training to shore up your understanding of respiratory health so you are teaching in a way that is aligned with the original texts on pranayama and is actually good for you and your students!

Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra manages to find a way to call attention to our negative mental patterns within the context of a shared human experience. The teachings are offered in a nonjudgmental, forgiving format that provides the space for us to see ourselves with clarity, unfiltered. Through our exploration and discussion, it is my hope that we can inspire each other to recognize and harness the internal power we each have to change the world by changing how we think.
