2. Pranayama, Mudras and Bandas (Breathing science)
Breathing (prana) is life. It is one of our most important sources of vital energy. Pranayama or breathing exercises promotes proper breathing. In a yogic point of view, proper breathing is to bring more oxygen to the blood and to the brain, and to control Prana or the vital life energy. Pranayama is the key to a deep experience of meditation. The breath is a doorway to enter into you. Students will develop deeper into their own practice of pranayama and purifying the whole body through pranic (breath) energy. At the end of the course students will gain the skills to teach their own pranayama classes. In this course students will learn the anatomy and physiology of breath on the physical and subtle levels and how to teach advanced pranayama and also pranic energy control techniques, bandhas and mudras.
In order to follow the technique of Pranayama, it is necessary to know something about mudras, and bandhas. The Sanskrit word mudra means a seal or a lock. It denotes positions which close the body apertures, where the fingers are held together with special hand gestures. Mudras are a combination of breath with special postures of body and fingers to stimulate different energy centers and subtle channels in the body.
The Sanskrit word Bandha means to hold, or lock. It also refers to a posture in which certain organs or parts of the body are gripped, contracted and controlled. In the practice of a Bandha, the energy flow to a particular area of the body is blocked. When the Bandha is released, this causes the energy to flood more strongly which removes the blockages in energy centers. The main learning objectives of breathing science are:
- Introduction of pranayama,
