Each session consists of theory and practice. At the beginning of the class, there is room for questions and answers.
One class will take about 120 minutes. The practice will increase over the time of the whole course as we introduce more techniques each time.
During the week you will have time tp practice the introduced techniques and observe the changes. The homework will be discussed every weekend.

This will be a traditional practice for everybody who wants to deepen or start their Pranayama practice. No previous knowledge is needed. It´s an experience-based practice to understand and integrate the teachings into daily practice.
It´s a basic training and for everybody who wants to improve their immune function and overall health.
For people who want to go deeper into the yogic science of breathing, there will be advanced courses after this level one training.
The Power of Breath
Our bodily functions, like our breath, are modulated by our subconscious mind. The autonomous nervous system regulates these processes. Alterations and disturbances in the ANS and the breath are expressions of hidden movements and disturbances in our minds. Over our lifetime we cultivate stressful thoughts and forget how to breathe naturally. We exhibit a harmful breathing pattern that gives our mind the external feedback of danger. Our physiology, our body-chemistry has to adjust to that and over time all sorts of stress-related diseases and symptoms arise. Like this, we remain in a vigilant state, mind and body alike, which block higher cognitive functions. As the breath is the body-mind bridge, all thoughts manifest in the breath and all breathing affects the state of mind.
With certain breathing, we can calm our minds and bring them to a state of calm awareness. We use our breath to ease the waves in our mind and become relaxed and focused. A sound breathing influences the physiology of our body, our immune functions, our thinking patterns, our resilience, our hormone status and biorhythms. Like this, we can think clearly and increase the healing and rejuvenating programs of our bodies.
