We will explore different breathing techniques, that you can apply during your yoga practice, in your every day life or in specific situations to soothe, calm and center yourself.  We will discover pranayama and meditation practices that can be integrated into your daily practice to reduce stress and expand consciousness.

There are many gifts that meditation offers including the obvious physical benefits of stress reduction, better sleep and improved health, but most that begin this process seeking self-help find that the real strength of meditation is the greater self awareness or inner understanding we develop. Our journey of self-discovery begins with the sacred art of meditation.

This workshop is supplemented with guided exercises and reflections for bringing the practice into daily life.  This course is suitable for anyone wanting to try meditation for the first time and also for regular meditators interested in exploring meditation more.  You’ll learn how to observe your breath to help calm down and concentrate the mind.

Nicole believes we cannot separate pranayama from the asana practice, all postures are led by our breath.  Practicing pranayama has always been an important part of Nicole’s daily yoga practice.  After years of training and self-practice, Nicole learned the art of inhaling, exhaling and retaining along with different techniques and skills. She is grateful to share the experience with everyone.
