Viloma Pranayama Stages 1 to 8 – Weekly Intermediate Class 99

Join To Start Course

Focus

This class concentrates exclusively on viloma pranayama. In viloma pranayama the movement of the breath is periodically paused in short and regular intervals. Rather than being continuous, the inhalation and exhalation progress in an alternating sequence of breath and breath retention.The class follows the first eight stages of viloma pranayama as described by B.K.S. Iyengar in his book  “Light on Pranayama”. The first three stages explore viloma pranaya from a reclining position. Eventually the pranayama is developed from a seated position. Viloma pranayama can help to cultivate mental clarity and focus, whilst helping to combat stress and anxiety.

Key Poses

savasana, viloma pranayama.

Equipment

Mat, bolster, 2 blankets.
