Pranayama intensive with Guru Ji

Breath is Life. A human being can survive 3 weeks without food, 3 days without water, but only 3 minutes without breath. Truly, BREATH IS LIFE. But breath serves us in a much deeper way than mere survival. Breath is the conscious bridge between our mind and body, and crossing this bridge with intention can lead us to deep understanding and profound change.

Drawing from the ancient Indian science of Pranayama, in this workshop we will explore a variety of pranayama techniques–from calm and quiet, to vigorous and powerful–to infuse the body and mind with an overall sense of vitality, well-being, and peace. You will also explore the history, philosophy, power of mantra, shatkarma (body purification), nadis (energetic channels), a variety of pranayama techniques, and siddha traditional meditation. Take home with you a deep experience of, and insight into, the elegant and simple power of the breath–truly, our most potent tool for positive transformation.

The cost is Rs.7500 for a total of 12 hours of class time. Please contact us for further details and or, to request for pricing for a private one on one program.
