Pranayama is the 4th limb of the 8 limbs of Yoga. It is the regulation of breath through certain techniques.
In this 75 minute workshop style class you can expect to learn how your breath communicates with the nervous system. Practicing mindful and calming Pranayama techniques will be the focus.
Join Nicky as you unwind and expand with your breath.
Suitable for all levels
"Feelings come and go like the clouds in a windy sky.
Conscious breathing is my anchor."

ABOUT NICKY YATES:
Nicky’s first experience with yoga was with a Rodney Yee DVD in her parents basement. As a competitive runner and a demanding sport athlete, she came to yoga in search of a slower physical practice to offset these more demanding physical activities of her day to day. Years later she sustained a TBI (traumatic brain injury) and came back to her mat for a deeper connection to her mind as she navigated through the rehabilitation of such an injury.
Her initial 200hr training was in 2011 mainly focusing on the Hatha and Vinyasa forms of yoga. Further educating herself with a 40hr Restorative Yoga Training, an 8hr Trauma Sensitive Training and recently a 65hr Pre Natal Yoga Training, she strives to always be a student first and a teacher second.
You will find in her classes a slow pace where you can dive deeply into your own personal experience. With foundational patterns of breath along with gentle postures and more alignment based cueing, you are encouraged to explore Yoga and it’s meaning to you.
