We will explore Asana to open breathing potential and practice traditional pranayama like Bhastrika, Ujjayi, Viloma, Brahmari.
Pranayama, deep savasana, restorative poses and chanting prepare for a different kind of listening, a direct perception, an immersion in the primordial Ocean of Sound, a state of absorption and being absorbed, a glimpse of Samadhi.
