We’d like to invite you to take a journey with us…
 
Take a moment - right now.
And take a big inhale - through your nose, if you can
PAUSE
 
And just before you exhale, think
• LET GO
 
And then through your mouth, with an audible sigh, Release your breath.
 
There we go. How do you feel?

IMMERSION OVERVIEW

Today you will breathe in and out about 22,000 times - you just took 1 of those breaths with awareness. When we direct our awareness to our breath we can become aware of how it ties all of our bodies together. Using the physical release of the exhale to allow for and shepherd an emotional release in the letting go. Here the breath tethered our emotional and physical bodies together - and this same tethering force links to our energetic and spiritual selves too. In this way, the breath becomes a vehicle that can radically alter our current state of being - while facilitating healing and nourishment throughout our entire being.

As with many healing modalities, it can take time to register the effects of these practices in the body. We need to give ourselves the grace, space, structure, and support to notice these beneficial changes in ourselves to encourage new habits and routines to form.

That’s why this course is 21-days - we will be with you each day, through in-person live classes, via daily exercises, and in our online groups - where you can ask questions, post videos or images, and get feedback immediately. This is how we support you in making a positive change to your routine, another addition to your beneficial self-care each day - what we call our dinacharya in Ayurveda.

The Pranayama practices taught in this Immersive online course are those used by Vasant Lad, BAM&S, MASc, founder and director of The Ayurvedic Institute - and usually only taught in this manner to his students in the ASP programs. Vaidya Lad will join us for a live 1.5-hr session during this course where you can ask a master of these techniques any questions you may have. 

Come learn how just a few of your 22,000 breaths a day can come to nourish you in mind, body, and spirit.

PRANA - THE LIFEFORCE IN THE BREATH

Pranayama, as the practice mentioned above is the ancient Ayurvedic and yogic practice of focusing on the breath. Prana, in Sanskrit means "vital life force", and yama means to gain control of. In this energy system - the holy life force of prana lives in the breath, thus, our Pranayama practice is a means to use the shakti, or life energies, to direct healing and understanding of self.

The pranic energies we work with in this immersion brings to life the healing force inherent to the breath. In Ayurveda we believe breath is life, that we are buoyed by the breath, one after the other, through our life. It’s our anchor to the present moment. When we learn to harness and work with our prana through the breath we empower ourselves with a reliable healing tool and calming, steadying practice.

Pranayama is a powerful practice, as it can support your optimal psychophysiology. Some pranayamas, practiced in their whole form, are contraindicated for various health conditions. In this course you will learn a variety of pranayama that may/may not be adverse to your conditions. The instructors will be fully available to provide appropriate modifications and guidance, as many pranayama can also be modified to meet you where you are and be approached with different intensities and intentions to still support the healing of many conditions without amplifying them. It is always helpful to have a skilled guide/practitioner/health consultant to assist you for complicated or involved situations. Overall pranayama is an excellent tool to have with you as you navigate the shifts in life whether they be energetic, physical, or mental/emotional. You can utilize the breath to bring harmony to the mind body sense complex when you intuitively integrate it with great skill.
