Join our autumn Pranayama and breathwork challenge to integrate and balance your breath into the body and the mind. Open to all yoga enthusiasts of all levels. Harness abundant of the autumn’s life force energy and direct it towards your inner and outer personal transformation.

This 2-week challenge is addressed to those who would like to progress with their breathwork alongside their physical health and well-being. It is ideal for those who want to integrate the Prāṇāyāma practice into their daily life.  Most of us think Prāṇāyāma is about breathing exercises. But this is only half the truth. Breathing exercises prepare you for Prāṇāyāma by enhancing the flow of Prāṇā, the vital life force. Prāṇāyāma begins where the breath ends. It is done with full awareness to harness the unlimited potential of the mind to become a balanced and creative individual. This challenge is to progress your Prāṇāyāma and breathwork practices. Every session includes Q&A for clarification as well as homework for a personal experience and adapting the practice into your daily life.
