Advanced pranayama towards supporting a deeper connection between mind and body, following practices outlined in the Haṭha Yoga Pradīpikā of Yogi Svatmarama. Recommended for students who wish to support and extend their regular practice of Pranayama.

There is clear scientific evidence that regulating the breath can quickly calm the mind and lead to sustained physiological wellbeing. James Nestor, author of the New York Times Best-Seller Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art argues that most of us are breathing incorrectly and that poor respiration is the underlying cause for many common health issues.  This course is designed for students who have taken pranayama courses in the past. If you are curious whether it’s a good fit for you please email Asha Shipman Director of Hindu Life:

Robert Moses is a yogi with 45+ years of teaching experience and a deep understanding of the neurological processes associated with yogic breathing. His extended bio can be found at this link.
