This first class of the session includes the practice of Viloma I and Ujjayi breaths and an introduction to the use of the eye wrap underneath the shoulder blades. Pranayama class affords those people who are seriously interested in working with breath an opportunity to move beyond the elementary levels that have been incorporated into the regular asana classes. A minimum of one year of study and practice of asana in the Iyengar method is required before practicing Pranayama.
Level II, III, IV classes are for students who have completed the preceding levels. Pranayama with a reputable teacher is highly recommended before purchasing an audio-only download.
