Breath Control and Core in Asana and Pranayama

Event Description:

The breath is a way of synchronizing mind and body to bring about relaxing meditative states. Exploring this connection in greater depth can also give us energy and strength to move through our mat practice (and everyday life) with grace and ease.

In this experiential workshop, Michael Dynie will guide you through:

Vinyasa (movement) practice that emphasizes utilizing the bandhas and breath retention for specific mechanical advantages.
Seated breathing exercises (pranayama) to enhance awareness, focus the mind, and activate the parasympathetic nervous system
Detailed overview of the anatomy of the core and the mechanics of breathing.
Three types of Mulah Bandha, various forms of Uddiyana Bandha and Jalandhara Bandha
Why some instructions can be confusing or even problematic.
Stoking the Digestive Fire: the abdominal vacuum (Uddiyana Kriya) and the abdominal roll (Nauli Kriya)
Valuable Perspectives from modern Physiotherapists and the 14th century text, Hatha Yoga Pradipika
