10-day Pranayama and Meditation Intensive – October 2010

The next 10-day intensive on Pranayama and Meditation is scheduled as given below:

  • When: Thursday, October 7- Saturday, October 16, 2010
  • Time: 6:00 – 7:30 AM
  • Location: Kalasrishti3000 Bearcat Way, Suite 112, Morrisville, NC 27513 (off Aviation Parkway)
  • Fee: $55

This is the third such program in a series that I plan to continue to offer in upcoming months as well. The motivation to continue these programs comes from the very positive and encouraging response and feedback that I have received from those who participated in the previous sessions.

In the pranayama and meditation intensive, I introduce the students to various breathing techniques that are given in the traditional yoga texts.

Since breathing is something that happens autonomously, we take it for granted. It happens while we are awake and it happens while we are sleeping. Have you ever noticed how your breathing pattern changes when you are angry, agitated or mentally disturbed? In anger, the breathing is shallow, quick, uneven and heavy. When we are calm and peaceful, the breathing is gentle, even and smooth. When we cry or are sad, we have a sobbing breath. The change in breathing happens without any conscious effort, simply based on the emotional state.  So, the question is whether the reverse can also be true. That is, can we control the emotional state of our mind through breath control? According to yoga the answer is a whopping "YES"!

Modern medicine can cure us of many physical ailments – common cold to complex organ replacements. However, no simple treatments are available when it comes to dealing with tough emotional issues. For example, there is no pill that can cure us of strong negative emotions like anger, hatred, jealousy, greed and so on. This is where the power of yogic practices like pranayama and meditation have been emphasized in the traditional yoga literature. These practices provide benefits at all levels – physical, physiological, mental, emotional, intellectual and even spiritual. Regular practice is known to bring about a total transformation – toward  a feeling of well-being at all levels.

Come and join me for this exciting 10-day intensive and learn these powerful pranayama and meditation techniques which have the potential to transform your life in a very positive way.
