Pranayama Workshop "Preparing for Stillness"

Come and learn how to progress into the deeper practices of Pranayama. Pranayama, is the practice of ancient yogic breathing techniques. It is the practice of consciously controlling the flow of breath, and thus enhancing  the flow of energy in the body. A regular, balanced pranayama practice increases prana (life energy), thereby inviting greater mental clarity, heightened healing potential and deeper self-understanding. Pranayama, like other yogic practices, is about being more fully alive and well, and is particularly helpful in the preparation for meditation.

This workshop will provide you with understanding, instruction and practice of pranayama techniques that you can deepen and integrate into your current routine.

Saturday November 4th 2-5. Suggested donation $35.00. Please pre-register with Manjula at 706-548-3625 or 

Exploring Yoga's Ethical Practice 2016 Ongoing

Join us any time from 2:00-4:00 pm on the first Sunday of every month at Satchidananda Mission for the study of the moral and ethical precepts of Yoga. We will meet once a month to study and practice the first two limbs of Sri Patanjali's eight limbed system known as Yama, Niyama. These observances are the foundation to all Yoga practice. We will journey through these philosophical guidelines with a book by Deborah Adele simply called "The Yamas & Niyamas." This translation offers these ancient teachings in such a way that they are applicable to every aspect of our modern lives. The teachings are woven into practical examples and stories. Please come prepared with a journal and a copy of "The Yamas & Niyamas" by Deborah Adele. Each session will end with a week by week assignment to apply the practices. This program is offered for a suggested donation of $5 per session to cover the cost of the space. All are welcome. Please join and explore a more skillful way to live.
