Ujjayi And Viloma Pranayama – Weekly Advanced Class 36

Join To Start Course

Focus

The focus of this class is restorative yoga poses and pranayama. The 60 minute duration of the sequence allows ample time for a range of preparatory chest opening poses at the start of the sequence. These poses help to achieve the required state of relaxation that is necessary for progressing to pranayama. Although intended for experienced students, this class does not include any complicated inversions, and as such will also be suitable for interested students who are newer to pranayama.

The first section of this class includes poses such as supta baddha konasana, viparita karani and setu bandha sarvangasana. From there you begin to focus more on your breath. Both ujjayi and viloma pranayamas are practiced in both reclining and seated positions. For this class a chair is used for sitting pranayama as opposed to the more traditional cross leg position. This will be of assistance if you are working with problems associated with your back, hips or knees. This will be a great class for anyone looking to deepen their understanding of basic pranayama, but also will suit people just wanting a sequence to help with relaxation and stress relief.
