The breath is a bridge between the mind, heart, and body. Our prana, or vital energy, rides on the breath. Through consciously connecting and changing our breathing patterns, we can not only alter the state of our physiology and mind, but also promote positive mood states and prepare our heart to be more receptive. We will go through a number of practices and explore how they feel, what they can be used for, and how they can support you on your path. As my teacher Sri Dharma Mittra says, pranayama is Iike an insurance policy for the rest of the day.
