Pranayama & Meditation

Today’s fast paced, multi tasked way of living has created levels of stress that without it we actually feel as if we are not living. Yet this “hamster-wheel” speed is creating a state of imbalance and unrest initiated in the mind but also affecting breathing and the physical body in a significant way. If this is not managed, then chronic conditions and other situations in life may arise.

Yoga offers the practices of Pranayama, Relaxation and Meditation as a panacea to move towards balance and stillness. From this the practitioner may have experiences of Oneness. Special Pranayama and Meditation group classes led by Manish 

Pranayama

Prana” is a Sanskrit word that means life-force or vital energy which keeps the body alive and “Ayama” is a Sanskrit word that means expansion. Pranayama is the process of expanding our life-force.

There are a series of simple progressive practices that enables us to witness our normal breath, and then move towards a more natural breath – effortless, deep and silent. We are often left with a feeling of being energised and relaxed, witnessing the expansion of our life force.

The practices cover breath awareness, cleansing, balancing, stimulating and deepening of the breathing capacity. Guidance from physiological to spiritual essence of the practices will make this exploration with the breath a joyous experience.

 

Meditation

Yoga at the core in all its practices and styles is about the mind. Through the support of Asanas (Postures) and Pranayama (Breath focus), one unlocks the door to the mind using the key of Awareness.

In the process of focusing (Dharana) and then de-focusing (Dhyana), meditation happens. Practises of silent witnessing, breath witnessing, mantra repetition (Japa), Yoga Nidra practices or any other forms are only techniques to help the practitioner to move towards an inner silence and stillness. From this point, the integration in every aspect of known and unknown happens (Samadhi).

Testimonials

I have really enjoyed your classes

I have really enjoyed your classes, at times I feel like you are giving 1-2-1 classes due to your interest in assisting people in going that 1 step forward, which I have found to be beneficial to me. I like the way your terminology used doesn’t make me feel that I should be able to do every posture which we cover in classes. I think the pace of the class is very good, you don’t rush things and you allow people to try things in their own time.
