Pranayama as Tapas

Class Description

Learn how to build tapas with pranayama (breathwork). This practice includes a gentle warm-up before a seated practice of kapalabhati (skull shining breath), pratiloma, which is a mixture of ujjayi (victory breath) and nadi shodhanam (alternate nostril breathing).

This practice does involve breath retention, which may at first make the mind agitated. But with practice, it can create a clarity of mind that can provide an inner sense of ease, even in chaotic times. Progress slowly, with patience.

This class is part of the Fire Up Your Practice: Tapas Challenge.
