Pranayama, Kriya and Meditation Course

Level-1
Book

Pranayama Kriya Meditation Course – The yogi’s life is not measured by the number of his days, but by the number of his breaths’, to quote B.K.S Iyengar verbatim, but all yogis have long known this as truth. They are highly aware of this fact and hence developed the practices of Pranayama to prolong one’s life.

What is Pranayama?

Prana means breath, respiration, life, vitality, energy, strength, or wind. Ayama means length, expansion, restraint and stretching. Pranayama thus connotes extension of breath and its control. The techniques of Pranayama provide the method whereby the life force can be activated and regulated in order to go beyond one’s limitations and attain a higher state of energy and awareness. The practices taught in Level 1 prepares the student for better breath and retention capacity and influence the flow of prana, regulating and activating them, resulting in physical and mental stability.

What is Kriya?

Kriya or Shatkarma consists of purification practices that aim to create harmony between the two major pranic flows in the body. According to Ayurveda, an imbalance in the body’s dosha (humours) will result in illness. Kriya/ Shatkarma support the practices of Pranayama and Meditation as they purify the body of toxins.
Here in this course, they are targeted to work on common modern ailments such as gastric, indigestion, high acidity, constipation, sinusitis, shallow breathing, mouth breathing, insomnia, body aches and so forth. These are the first line of defence that needs to be strengthened in order to gain a strong immune system. The kriyas will work on your digestive and nervous system.
