Heart of Yoga Pranayama workshop with Domagoj Orlic & Adisa Hajra

 

Domagoj Orlic, with the assistance of his partner Adisa Hajra, will be teaching two workshops in Belfast.

Pranayama workshop 18th August

The principles of Yoga according to the father of modern Yoga, Sri Tirumalai Muchukunte Krishnamacharya, with special emphasis on pranayama

The first workshop will be divided into three parts:

1) Introductory discourse on the principles of Yoga, 2) Practice of Yoga with special emphasis on pranayama and 3) Concluding discussion after the practice so that the participants could absorb the following points:

  • The practice of yogasana is incomplete without the practice of pranayama since asana essentially is dynamic pranayama preparing for static pranayama, especially if we want to do some meditation too.
  • Static pranayama, or pranayama proper, is usually done after the practice of asana in a static seated position, preferably with the legs crossed and the back straight. The eyes are closed, the body doesn’t move except for the torso and all attention is turned towards lengthening and/or suspending the breath.
  • So, pranayama is the crown of asana practice and the foundation for solid meditation. And various modes of meditation then spontaneously arise when concentrated conscious breathing clears our mind and softens our Heart.

Handouts will be distributed among the participants and all the practices will be adapted to individual needs and situation.

This event is organised by Emma Warmington, Heart of Yoga teacher in Belfast (jivaniyoga.com). Follow the link for the second Yoga Sutra Workshop 19th August.

Tickets are £40/session or £70 for both with payments to Emma via paypal.
