The Sanskrit work pranayama means 'to relaese life energy from its bounds.' When practiced correctly, this powerful form of yogic breathwork has the ability to reveal the intricate web of one's thoughts, psysiology, and energetic patterns, to quiet one's mind and heighten receptivity, and to open one's mind to 'the intrinsic radiance of Being.' On Yoga Breathing, Richard Freeman invites you to learn the essential principles and techniques of pranayama.
Every breath you take, teaches Freeman, can serve as a guiding thread into the depths of yoga: a place of freedom and immediacy of awareness that begins on the practice mat and gradually extends into each moment of your life. Yoga Breathing distills the secrets of this essential inner work into two complete home practice sessions designed to guide you, breath by breath, to greater vitality and health.
Richard Freeman has been a student of yoga since 1968. He has spent more than nine years in Asia studying a variety of yogic disciplines. A long-time student of K. Pattabhi Jois of Mysore, India, he is the creator of popular videos on Ashtanga Yoga and is the director of the Yoga Workshop in Boulder, Colorado.
