We are excited to welcome back Judith Hanson-Lasater as she offers an exclusive training on Pranayama and Moving toward the Centre. This particular training will focus on our yoga practice, including Active poses in the first session of the day, and Restorative poses in the afternoon session.

Both the Active and Restorative poses will therefore be selected specifically to open us to our breathing. While it is not well-known, in traditional yoga training pranayama practice was much more important than asana practice. We will approach the topic first from breathing awareness techniques that are suitable for all levels of students, and then move into traditional pranayama practice. Classic yoga teachings state that pranayama is the gateway to meditation.

In addition to the classical techniques of practice, we will explore ourselves through discussion, short writing assignments, and the cultivation of an introspective attitude.

This 5-day intensive is for you if:

  • You regularly practice pranayama
  • You do not presently practice pranayama regularly but really want to
  • You are curious about the effects of the regular practice of pranayama
  • You want to understand better the relationship of the effects of asana on pranayama practice

Props: As part of this course we will provide 1 bolster, 2 blocks, 2 bricks and these props will be available to purchase at a discount at the end of the course. You are required to bring your own x 3 firm blankets and 1 strap. Ideally you will bring the “D” ring belt that is six feet long and two inches wide.

Please note that this workshop counts towards elective hours on the Yoga Therapy Diploma.

Thoughts from Judith’s students:

“What I appreciated most about Judith’s Pranayama Intensive was the thoughtful, progressive structure of the workshop. Each class segment was organized thematically around principles of practice and respiratory physiology, asana to prepare for Pranayama, and restoratives to integrate. My understanding of asana and pranayama sequencing grew by leaps and bounds. One of my favorite workshops!” – Mary E. Richards, M.S.
