Saturday 11th November 4 -5 pm
Pranayama ( ‘Expansion of the Vital Life Force’ ) is a foundational breathwork practice of both the Ashtanga and Hatha schools of Yoga. In this monthly session Francesca will introduce you to the theory and practices of traditional pranayama, with the aim of establishing or strengthening your own personal practice.
- learn about the purpose, applications and benefits of pranayama, kriyas, and mudras according to the Ashtanga and Hatha schools of yoga
- receive an introduction to the main traditional pranayama techniques
- learn how asana and pranayama yoga practices work together to maximise their benefits both on the mat and in everyday life
This pranayama class is designed for beginners who don’t have any prior experience with Yoga as well as for experienced Yoga practitioners who are interested in exploring the fundamentals of yogic breathing in greater detail.
Francesca has 8 years’ experience as a practitioner of Ashtanga Yoga. She has been assisting for several years in the Mysore room at Ashtanga Yoga Glasgow and has recently completed a 200hr YTT. She has studied pranayama intensively and qualified as pranayama teacher from the Yoga Education Collective with Eddie Stern and Robert Moses.
Francesca teaches the new Thursday morning mysore session ( 6.30 – 8.30am ) where she begins each class with optional guided pranayama.
