Dr. Kausthub Desikachar
“prāṇāyāma is first and foremost to give us many different possibilities for following the breath. When we follow the breath, the mind will be drawn into the activities of the breath. In this way prāṇāyāma prepares us for the stillness of meditation.”
― T.K.V. Desikachar, The Heart of Yoga: Developing a Personal Practice
We are more than happy to welcome Dr. Kausthub Desikachar back to our Yoga School
This time we will dive deep into Prāṇāyāma and how to work with Prāṇā.
The real power of Yoga lies in the ability to access, nourish and vitalize the concept of Prāṇā. Prāṇā, also called “vital-life-force,” is the most subtle element of our human construct. This is the reason why many Yogins developed methods and tools to influence Prāṇa in a positive way.

The real power of Yoga lies in the ability to access, nourish and vitalize the concept of Prāṇā.
Prāṇā, also called “vital-life-force,” is the most subtle element of our human construct.
This is the reason why many Yogins developed methods and tools to influence Prāṇa in a positive way.
Primary among these methods, is Prāṇāyāma one of the most important tools in the practice and application of Yoga. The power and potentials of these subtle breathing practices are often underestimated or misunderstood in contemporary times.
The Haṭhayogapradīpikā even implies that the state of Yoga can only be achieved through Prāṇāyāma and states it as the most fundamental practice in Haṭhayoga.
Prāṇāyāma not only aids us to enhance our own personal practice as many believe, but can also be administered for health, vitality and even our spiritual growth.
A deep and practical understanding of these techniques are a very important aspect of every Yoga practitioners education and experience, especially for Yoga Teachers and Yoga Therapists.
Many subtle and intricate details of these practices must also be learnt and experienced under the guidance of a competent teacher in a safe environment.
It is for this reason that a series of weekend seminars are offered to serious students of Yoga, who would like to take their learning and practice to the next level.
The seminars will include practical and insightful teachings, and powerful practices that will allow participants to realize the immense benefits of working with Prāṇā.
