Practising with the breath, Advanced Breathwork Course
8 -13 August 2021
This Advanced Sati yoga intensive explores various way to practice with the breath in asana, pranyama and meditation. It is particularly suitable for existing yoga teachers who wish to increase the focus on the breath in their practice and teaching.
Sati Yoga Breathwork course
This advanced course is only suitable for experienced practitioners and yoga teachers.
This is an intensive 5-day course which explores the central role of the breath and how it connects all other aspects of yoga. This exploration will be conducted from both experiential and theoretical perspectives. With its general theme: Practising with the breath, this unique training will deepen your understanding and practice of yoga that goes far beyond the physical postures. The integration of classical yoga and early Buddhist teachings will challenge, extend and ultimately transform your understanding of the breath. About one third of the time on the course is devoted to asana practice, one third to classical pranayama practice, and one third to mindfulness of breathing – although, as you will discover, the boundaries between these areas can be very fuzzy!
This course introduces a unique approach to breathwork drawing from classical pranayama as well as from the Buddhist perspective articulated in the Anapanasati sutta (the Buddha’s discourse on mindfulness of breathing). This proven structured approach can be used to teach breath work to students of all levels, from complete beginners to yoga teacher trainers.
This course is one of the residential modules for the 500hr Sati Yoga Teacher Training Programme. It can also be taken as a stand-alone intensive training, providing 35 CPD hrs, allowing students who are new to the Sati Yoga approach an opportunity to experience an intensive training before committing to either of the teacher training programmes.
