Patterns of Breath and Life: Exploring the role of breath in our yoga practice and beyond.
with Leah Thomas Montegut
Sat. March 5, 6-8:30pm
The ways in which we engage our breath can have a transformative effect on not just our yoga practice but on other aspects of our lives. In this workshop, we will engage our breath in new ways. By observing our patterns and exploring possibilities, we can discover more ease within ourselves. We will examine breath as it relates to asana and vinyasa practices, pranayama practices, as a basis of strength and support from within, and as a key to releasing holding and tension.
Open to all levels (no prior yoga experience is necessary.)
