Come one, come all! In this all-levels yoga class, students will learn about and practice
pranayama, or breath awareness and control, in a supportive community setting. This ancient
yogic practice helps the student increase body awareness, obtain mental clarity, and calm the
nervous system to mitigate the harmful effects of chronic stress. Students will develop a
toolbox of helpful techniques they can use anytime, anywhere for immediate stress relief.
A mat and something to sit on (a pillow, blanket, cushion, bolster, block etc) are recommended
for optimal practice. Some extra prop items may be available for in-person students. Also
consider bringing something to write on and with to record observations of your practice and
dive deeper into your yoga journey.
