8 WEDNESDAYS, 7:45-8:45PM 

OCTOBER 10 – NOVEMBER 28

This series will introduce you to the art of breathing skillfully and with awareness in order to facilitate relaxation and renewed vitalityof body and mind.  This limb of Yoga is called Pranayama. 

In each class you will practice simple postures (asanas) which allow the body to relax and prepare for conditioned breathing.  As the body relaxes and opens, the breath moves more freely.  The mind is gently guided inward to become aware of how and where the breath is moving.  As you practice various ways of breathing, your mind becomes deeply focused and quiet.  The end result is a profound sense of well-being and renewed clarity. 

**You must register for the 8-week Series, as each class develops and builds on the next class.

Come for the Wednesday Asana class 6-7:30pm and stay for the Pranayama class at 7:45!
