Yoga practices can have a profound effect on health by leading to changes in vitality associated with shifts in the flow of prana. This course will specifically explore the concept of prana in conjunction with pranayama or traditional practices of breath work. Included in this course will be in-depth consideration of common breath pattern disorders, their effect upon health (with specific consideration of prevalent health issues and symptoms of over-breathing), and the appropriate practices of pranayama that can be taught to address these breathing patterns. Both the physical and subtle anatomy of the breath will be covered. Students will also develop their skills in leading breathing practices.
