About the training

Reactivate the vital energy forces of your body through the breath, and learn how to become the master of your thoughts, feelings, and destiny. The breath is the most vital process of the body, through which you exchange Prana constantly with the universe. Prana is the force, which animates all living beings as well as the force that creates and binds matter, as we know it.

Pranayama practices are mostly done with the breath, which allows you to control, extend, awaken and preserve your Prana. As the breath is intimately linked to your thoughts, feelings, and every little cell of the body, Pranayamas are used to prepare our mind for the subtle process of meditation and concentration and to heal your whole being down to the cellular level. These exercises initiate the profound transformation of your whole being.

In this journey, you will gradually develop breath awareness, the ability to extend and expand your breathing process and dive deep into the traditional Pranayamas that were perceived by the ancient sages as secret tools to elevate our consciousness. The practices will be learned in a step-by-step approach and therefore this course doesn’t require any pre-knowledge or experience.

This Pranayama Teacher Training Retreat can fit yoga teachers, and breath workers who wish to deepen their knowledge, practice, and teaching techniques, or to anyone without any experience who would like to dive into one of the more subtle aspects of yoga practice.

This course’s hours are countable as Continuing Education hours in Yoga Alliance for active and Registered Yoga Teachers. In addition you will get a certificate with the completion of the retreat.

To support the process of deep purification will have Satvic vegan food and an outdoor sauna during the retreat. You will use special cleansing oils, herbs and aromatherapy for the lungs to support the practice.
