The Power of Breath: A Yoga and Kirtan Workshop
Limited Capacity seats available

Have you ever heard the instruction "focus on your breath," but wondered at the root and intention of the exercise?

This workshop will explore the origin and goal of breathing exercises through practice, in both gentle yoga asana and the chanting practice of Kirtan.  The breath is a powerful tool that we can use to balance our bodies and minds.  Once learned, one can continue to apply the principles to daily practice.

Join us as we sync breath, movement, and voice to the beat of a drum (and a harmonium!).  No experience necessary, beneficial for all levels of practitioners.
Not sure what Kirtan is?  Check out a live recording of one of our previous Kirtan events at: www.adrienneshum.bandcamp.com
