w/Dr. Sundar Balasubramanian
In this training you will learn the anatomy and physiology of breathing. In yoga we call it, Pranayama. The weekend will be spent understanding the theory of breathing with a larger percentage of your time in actual practice! You will dive deep into the bandhas, the energetic locks in the body, an dhow they support the practice of pranayama. Clinical applications and how to teach a pranayama class are all a part of this Advanced Studies training.
Please note: this course is designed for anyone interested in learning more about how to use your own breath for healing.
