Sho Higuchi’s signature Restorative Yoga + Yoga Nidra workshops are back, and, this time, we are starting off with a very special installment incorporating pranayama techniques for healing.
We take an average of 21,000 breaths every single day of our lives. Oftentimes we don’t even think about it until we lose the freedom in our breathing (such as when we are congested). The breath is the backdrop of our life and is a powerful tool that, when utilized properly, can promote a state of deep healing and optimum health.
Join Sho in this special workshop where we will explore some of the ancient yogic healing techniques to restore our mind-body health to its optimum state. Our breath not only brings in oxygen, but it also brings prana, the all pervading life force energy that sustains all life form. By bringing awareness to our breath and this prana flow, we are able to tap into our body’s natural ability to heal itself.
Ajna Chakra is often called our third eye and is our psychic center of intuition. Ajna chakra is what we use to make sense of the world around us. While we use our eyes to see the external world, we use Ajna to interpret, understand, and give meaning to what we see. When out of balance, we get stuck in our own belief system and see the world through a biased sense of perception. When Ajna is balanced and harmonious, we are able to see and understand what the yogis call Satya, truth. We are able to connect to our true nature – peace, bliss, and love. When our “third eye” is “open,” any questions we might have are wordlessly answered, and we are able to move through life with a sense of purpose and clarity.
Learn how we can use the yogi’s ancient techniques to alleviate symptoms of depression, anxiety and stress; sleep better at night; improve digestion, and relieve digestive distress; boost and restore the immune system, lymphatic system, and circulatory system; alleviate pelvic floor issues; improve memory, focus and concentration; and of course, breathe more freely and easefully! We will even explore some of the ancient yogi’s secret anti-aging techniques!
Class will begin with simple breath awareness and breathing techniques to relax and soothe the mind and nervous system (these techniques can be done anywhere, anytime you need). We will then prepare the physical body through gentle, mindful stretching, explore the ancient breath and pranayama techniques, and end with a healing prana shakti yoga nidra meditation designed to fuel our cells with the necessary prana to restore, rebuild and rejuvenate.
