WHAT IS PRANAYAMA?
Pranayama is the science of the yogic breath, an integral part of the eight limbs of yoga. Proceeded by asana, or the physical practice, pranayama is a means by which one can go deeper into their yoga practice. Helping the practitioner of yoga reach new subtleties of existence, experiencing the benefits of a healthier, more intelligent, and sensitive breath.
The classes are led by Arundhati Baitmangalkar, as she shares the wisdom that she has learnt and practised with her teachers. Come discover various breathing techniques that are not only challenging, but also detailed, explained, corrected, and consistent. Leaving you to feel more refreshed, energized, active, and peaceful. Arundhati is the only one to offer consistent pranayama classes in the greater Seattle area – sign up for the 6 week series to claim your spot.
BENEFITS OF REGULAR PRANAYAMA PRACTICE:
- Good for people who experience mental fatigue.
- Strengthens the lungs & improves respiratory function.
- Increases the oxygen in the body and blood.
- Enhances productivity.
- Boosts self image and confidence.
- Cures depression and uplifts one’s energy.
- Important for lactation in pregnant women.
WHO IS THIS FOR?
Pranayama requires one to be seated upright for an extended duration of time, so the best benefits are felt by those who already have a consistent asana, or physical practice. With that, we are opening this up to anybody who wants to work on the efficiency of their respiratory system – the breath is an integral part of how our mind functions. Open only to adults above the age of 15.
