Pranayama & Guided Meditation: A Step-by-Step Approach
October 19 - 25

Morning Practice Immersion
Saturday(10/19) & Sunday(10/20): 8:00-9:30

Monday to Friday (10/21~10/25): 6:45-8:15

Through the application of Prânâyâma in daily practice, it is said that the yogin starts to refine an internal journey to self-realization.

During this week-long morning immersion, Emil endeavors to help support each student find her or his own pace to develop a personal practice.

Some of the breathing techniques introduced throughout the week are common to all schools of Prânâyâma.

The guided meditation offered each day has a specific focus on refining the qualities of stillness in practice. The sessions will draw on insights from the disciplines of Râja-Yoga:  Âsana, Prânâyâma, Pratyâhâra, and Dhâranâ.

This immersion is open to all levels, from beginner students right up to long-time practitioners of Yoga.
