Breath & Bandha: The Magic Carpet Ride
Inhalation and exhalation are two sides of the inner body. In this class learn how breathe is the key to unlocking the mysteries of inner strength and accessing a calm, meditative mind. Only by mastering the breathe will you gain true access to the power centers deep within your pelvis, often referred to as the “bandhas”. These energy locks are both physical muscles that you can access and spiritual doors that you can walk through. Often the missing key to a flowing practice, the integration of breathe and bandha lead the way to the discovery of limitless power and lasting peace both in your yoga practice and in your life.
