Events &
Workshops
Pranayama Workshop with Gabriel

At Kriya Yoga in Chicago   More info
FRI Dec 15: 6 – 9 pm
To skillfully work with prana, you have to soothe the nerves to ease any tension before your practice. Restorative asanas teach you to practice slowly and with care. Supine pranayama helps you practice without strain. Seated technique requires stable asana as its base, and mudras and bandhas as its support. With brain passive and lungs active, forcing nothing, breath is the ultimate emancipation.

Join Master Teacher, Gabriel Halpern for an exploration of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. This four week course delves into the most famous classical treatise on the understanding of mind and consciousness.
