True happiness and fulfillment comes from life enhancing experiences. All suffering comes from life diminishing, life being taken away. We all want more experience, more happiness; more life!
The breath is the vehicle of life. We can survive weeks without food, days without water, but only minutes without breathing. The practice of Pranayama is the perfection of breathing, the methodology of expanding life. Pran is the “life force” or energy that animates all life. Ayama means “expansion” or “extension”. Pranayama is the “expansion and extension of the life force”.
Through directed attention, deepening awareness and dynamic exercises Pranayama expands and extends the gross, subtle and energetic aspects of breathing, expanding the Pran and extending our experience of living. Resulting in the expansion and extension of fulfillment!
Join us for this festival and learn seldom revealed secrets of Pranayama. It is the most powerful Yogic practice, purifying the body and the mind, freeing us from all levels of toxicity and filling us with LIFE!
Through Pranayama we have the power to expand life, benefiting ourselves, the world and all beings!
