Discover the power of Pranayama

Pranayama, or yogic breathing, is a powerful way to dramatically improve your health and wellbeing. One of the 8 Limbs of yoga, pranayama offers many breathing practices that can be used to boost your energy levels, increase mental clarity and improve your overall health. It's the missing piece of the yoga puzzle and when you learn to perform pranayama correctly, your yoga practice will be transformed forever.

When the breath wanders the mind also is unsteady. But when the breath is calmed the mind too will be still, and the yogi achieves long life. Therefore, one should learn to control the breath.” Hatha Yoga Pradipika

This Masterclass with Nikola Ellis, one of Australia's leading teachers, gives you the opportunity to explore several pranayama practices, learning the correct posture, technique and mudras (hand positions) to achieve the best possible outcomes. In this fascinating and practical workshop you will learn:
