• Pranayama Course

    Sunday, 12th November 2017 at 6:30pm - 8pm, Sunday, 19th November 2017 at 6:30pm - 8pm, Sunday, 26th November 2017 at 6:30pm - 8pm, Sunday, 3rd December 2017 at 6:30pm - 8pm
    Location: The Iyengar Yoga Studio, Leicester Road, East Finchley, London N2 9EA

    This series of four sessions, each of an hour and a half, introduces the foundations of pranayama practice, with the support of a highly experienced teacher. Ros is an Intermediate Senior Level 3 teacher, who has been teaching Iyengar yoga for forty years. She has visited our parent Institute in Pune, and learned pranayama with BKS Iyengar himself, as well as with Geeta and Prashant Iyengar and other senior teachers in India and in the UK.

    These four classes will cover the basics of lying and sitting for pranayama, as well as the practice of breathing itself. Pranayama means more than just 'breathing exercises'; it is about controlling and directing our energy. We will look at the technicalities of breathing, follow different breathing patterns and methods, and feel the connections between body, breath and mind. The sessions will also include some appropriate asana practice, postures to open the chest, to prepare for sitting, and to bring quietness.

    This set of four classes are designed to be taken together, as a developing series, so you cannot book for individual sessions. It is open to anyone, at any level of yoga experience other than complete beginner, though you should have a steady body and be able to sit upright in a stable fashion, so at least a few months of regular yoga asana practice is recommended. Experienced yoga practitioners and teachers are also welcome. If you have a serious medical condition, or have any other concerns or queries, please contact us first so that this can be discussed with the teacher.

    This is a foundation course in pranayama, so NELIYI hopes to be able to offer a follow-up course next year. Numbers are limited, and advance booking is essential, so please complete your booking as soon as you can. Just click on 'Buy tickets' for secure payment online.

    The studio is warm, quiet and fully equipped. There is local street parking, and nearby public transport.
