"breath is the bridge which connects life to consciousness, which unites your body to your thoughts"  

       - Thich Nhat Hanh


it's free.

it's available 24/7.

it's automatic, yet easily directed.

it's healing.

it's energizing.

it's alive.

it is life!


'just breathe and everything will change.'

as we practiced in our classes, the pranayama practices below will help you sit still, focus your mind, and increase your capacity to breathe.

 enjoy the energy!
