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.
Open your heart and truly love by balancing the Anahata Chakra, our fourth major energy center in the body. Anahata chakra is our heart center and governs our ability to love and receive love. This practice will help us to invite self acceptance, compassion, and balance into our lives. By balancing Anahata chakra, we can learn to truly love and appreciate ourself and connect to the true self, what the yogis call the Atma, wherein lies our true nature – infinite bliss and unconditional love. A harmonious Anahata chakra helps us to find our purpose in life and leaves us with a deep sense of inner peace and joy.
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.
