Embodied Breath 2018 Summer Pranayama Immersion and Teacher Training Program
Begins Thursday June 7, 2018, 6:30-8:30 pm
A 3 Month Practice, Yoga Therapy, and Teacher Training Program
with Becky Morrissey, EMBODIYoga 500 hr Teacher, eRYT500, C-IAYT, ISMETA, YACEP
The word "inspiration" comes from the Latin "inspire", which means to breathe.
The asana exploration of yoga naturally lends itself to a study and practice of pranayama. This 6 month immersion into the practices, yoga therapeutics, and teaching of breath is an opportunity to develop and support a nourishing, therapeutic, and transformative formal pranayama study, within a flexible format of workshop classes and teleconference class sessions in your own home.
This immersion will explore pranayama as a spiritual, energetic practice as well as a yogic wellness methodology. This course will offer embodied breathing anatomy, preparatory chanting and use of mudra, learning of basic pranayama techniques for effect, teaching of pranayama sequencing within classes, yoga breath therapeutics, exploration of subtle energy reading and mapping, uncommon variations of the practices, and much more.
The offering of this immersion is to establish a personal, daily 10-20 minute pranayama practice. Between in-person class sessions and tele-classes, students will be exploring and self-guiding the pranayama practices congruent to the arc of the syllabus. Support for your integration of pranayama into your daily life practice will be offered by the course and via weekly email; as a student, a daily intention to practice is essential.
Please see the following videos for samples of the work to be explored in the 2018 Summer Pranayama Immersion Studies:
