During the intensive two day workshop you will deepen your understanding of the different techniques involved and we will help to refine the skill of each participant. We will look at why pranayama is considered to be such an efficacious practice for spiritual growth. Each morning starts with seated practice followed by an asana class, accessible to all levels and designed to support the pranayama. There will also be chanting and meditation.
