Meanwhile, breathing is the one of the most vital processes our body undertakes and is fundamental to every style of yoga. Yogic breathing exercises (Pranayama) you will be able to arrive at a place of stillness, ultimately leading to a deeper understanding of yourself and the world around you.
What to expect: A mainly seated or reclining class, the first part will involve a series of clearly guided breathing techniques to help relax your body, heart rate and mind. As you settle into yourself, you will then be lead through a guided meditation, where you can watch your thoughts and emotions come and go without judgement.
