What you'll learn
- Fundamental breathing techniques
- Basic principles of Pranayama
- How to do three cleansing techniques
- How to do two basic Pranayamas
- When not to do certain techniques
- Basic understanding of English
Breathing is the most essential function of any living being. Everyone does it, so the fundamentals often get overlooked. If you intend to start a yoga practice, or return to it, if you started some time ago and forgot the basics, if you are just curious and want to test it for yourself, this is the perfect opportunity to try it out, at your own pace, from the comfort of your home.
You will learn the techniques of energizing and calming Pranayamas, and cleansing techniques that will bring you physical and mental balance. You will also get a glimpse into some more advanced variations and executions of the Pranayamas, and you will learn when NOT to do them, so that you stay on the safe side.
I will not make wild claims or emphasize marginal scientific evidence that link certain techniques to magic healing results. This course will give you the stepping stones for your own personal discovery. Succinct instructional videos and assignments do not have the new-age over enthusiastic subtext. All the information is based on two essential Yogic resources that have been used by yoga teachers around the world.
You will receive a tool for self-monitoring and progress, which will help you stay consistent in your practice even after the course.
Ideally, you will practice each Section for a week, so that you experience the benefits and the improvement in practice.
In that way, the course will take four weeks to complete.
Who this course is for:
- Beginner or intermediate yoga practitioners
- People who would like to maintain their healthy habits
- People interested in holistic wellbeing
- People interested in the Pranayama part of the yogic practice
I have been on the yogic path for more than twenty, and teaching it for more than five years (Yoga Alliance RYT200). A couple of years ago, I got certified for Massage therapy and Reflexology. I practice some other healing techniques, but my favorite 'cure' is creativity. In the parallel reality, I am an English teacher, with a degree in English language and literature and Masters in Education. I am interested in teaching English as a foreign language to students with dyslexia. My focus in teaching is on EdTech, i.e. using digital tools to enhance the learning experience. I train the teachers on how to improve their teaching with digital tools, so I hold many certifications for those (Google Certified Trainer, Nearpod PioNear). I am also a cat lady who knits!
