Pranayama Monthly Sunday Session Online and in person $15 or $5/koha unwaged Next session Sunday 7-8.30pm October 3rd

Odette Rowe in yoga poseA 90min monthly class for graduates of my year long pranayama programme ( or those who regularly attend my classes). Now that you understand the way you breathe and can use more of your lung capacity you are ready to explore the breath technology of Kundalini Yoga. New pranees are also welcome!

Each month we explore a new therapeutic breathing practice, exploring pauses, nostril dominance, purification, how to breathe in strokes for different brain focus, and how to whistle your way to happiness. These practices bring  healing and a meditative quality to your practice. The session will include a pranayama that you can be a part of your daily practice for the month if you wish. This month our focus is feeling comfortable in times of transition. We test drive some simple pranayama towards creating a holistic daily breathing practice, being attentive to what can be improved and what can just be accepted as it is.

Dates for this year:  October 3rd, Dec 5th ( subject to change so please book in ) You can book in for individual sessions rather than attend the whole year. You can also attend in person rather than online if you prefer.
