CBD 2019: Yoga Breathing for Contemplative Practices with Swami Ramananda

November 02, 2019|3:45pm

The ancient masters of Yoga designed this science of contemplative practices primarily for the purpose of leading us into deeper, more subtle levels of our being, and ultimately to experience fully a source of profound peace within us. This workshop will examine how we can use Yoga breathing practices to bring health and vitality to the body, and both clarity and equanimity to the mind. By being in touch with the more subtle energies within us, we can gain the insight to free ourselves from habitual thought patterns that limit our ability to experience joy and love.

Swami Ramananda is the President of the Integral Yoga Institute San Francisco and a greatly respected senior teacher in the Integral Yoga tradition. He has been practicing yoga since 1975. He leads a variety of programs in the U.S., Europe and South America with a focus on training yoga teachers to bring yoga and mind/body wellness programs into corporate, hospital and medical settings. He is a founding board member of Yoga Alliance, the national registry that supports and promotes yoga teachers as professionals. He offers practical methods of integrating into daily life the timeless teachings and practices of yoga. He illuminates how yoga can transform painful aspects of human experience and contribute to realization of one’s full potential. His warmth, wisdom and sense of humor have endeared him to many.
