Pranayama and Restorative Yoga with Gabriel Halpern


 
Sunday, January 17
Noon - 3:00pm

Mastering yoga poses confer a flexible body, calm nerves, and mental steadiness. This is the pre-requisite for working with our breath - the fourth limb of yoga called pranayama. Yoga is the best antidote for being burnt out, being out-of-sync with your own life rhythm, or fluctuating back and forth between being anxious or depressed. Yoga teaches techniques that are simple, safe, and effective. Today's class will cover a sequence of poses that will relax and renew. Supine breath awareness techniques, as well and digital pranayama basics, will be covered. If you want to leave with peace of mind, come to this class.
