The Power of Pranayama: The Fourth Limb of Yoga with Meera Dhawan

Pranayama, the practice of breath regulation, is a transformative practice for yoga students and teachers. An ancient practice that dates back thousands of years, pranayama is still widely used today to help focus the mind, reduce stress and anxiety, and deepen the depth of our yoga practice. This workshop, led by Yoga Garden instructor Meera Dhawan, will explore the definitions & goals of pranayama, the fundamentals for practice, and classical & preparatory techniques. Teachers will be given guidance on where and how to safely incorporate pranayama into their public and private yoga sessions. In this workshop, you will learn:
