This course takes the student on a journey of deeper understanding of the mechanics of the three-stage Pranayama as taught in the Art of Living SKY Breath Workshop.

We take a look at the physics governing the (not-so) simple process of Breathing. We link this understanding from Physics to how it applies to the process of Pranayama.

We further refine the hand positions and introduce some subtle corrections to the practice of the Pranayama process to experience it’s deep benefits.
This course is broken in 10’ish minute segments that could be learned at your own pace. Each section has an accompanying Quiz to refine our understanding of the section.
