Blaž will teach the workshop: Asana as Preparation for Pranayama and Ujjayi Pranayama Variations
Sunday, 8.00 – 9.30 CET
Blaž will present his unique asana and somatics sequence which will awaken the awareness of different parts of the lungs and the diaphragmatic muscle. At the same time we will explore our individual potential to optimize our breathing capacity. Without force, only with loving awareness. We will use a chair, wall and yoga belt as a guru which will help us to understand right activities and better somatic awareness.
We will finish with 20 minutes of Ujjayi pranayama practice in Savasana and in sitting posture, with interesting pranayama modificiation, which was tought by the Indian yoga master Krishnamacharya.
