Passed on some of the information and exercises that were covered in the Pranayama workshop. Students were interested to learn that the Ujjayi/Ocean breath, often touted as the breath to use in posture work, is no longer recommended for that purpose.

Also known as the psychic breath, it is primarily a meditative breath which leads to altered states of consciousness.

We focused this week on the 3-part yogic breath, simply locating and familiarising ourselves with the different sections and names used when describing basic breathing techniques. Always useful to go right back to basics and check you haven’t slipped into bad habits or misunderstandings!
