THURSDAYS @ 6-6:45 PM
Guided by Christina Echevarria
Designed to help you to optimize mind, body, and spirit to experience a sense of ease, well-being and vitality.
Christina will guide you through a two-part Pranayama Breathwork Meditation taught by her teacher, David Elliott.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
There are many variations to Pranayama yoga breathing, but the essential technique you will experience is…
Laying down on your back, and breathing deeply through your mouth for a while. (There are two stages in the inhale — once into the stomach and once more into the chest before you exhale through the mouth.)
The way it works…it gets the energy moving through your body and helps your mind settle down. It stimulates the energy meridians in your body, and helps you release stagnant energy in different parts of your energy field. Most people feel the effects of the breathing viscerally in their body and energy within minutes.
One benefit of an ‘active meditation’ practice is it really helps you let go of the mental activity since you have something to focus on.
