The aim of every yogic practice is to free the great cosmic power or energy that lies within us, in a dormant state. One of the best tools to do it is through the practice of prâṇâyâma.
In this workshop we will show you the first steps to take into the practice:
– To do some preliminary exercises to prepare the physio-psychological system for the practice.
– To know, perform and understand the four âsanas prescribed by the tradition to do prâṇâyâma.
– To have the darśana or vision of the different levels of breathing.
– To learn basic exercises of prâṇâyâma.
We will, as well, if there is time, use the power of chanting mantra as another way to expand the primal energy.
