Building Your Pranayama & Meditation Practice
An 8 Week ONLINE Course With Nancy Candea, CYT
This 8 week Online Class is designed to help you build a pranayama (breathwork) and meditation practice. Class will meet online on Tuesdays at 6am. The recorded classes will also be emailed to all participants so you can take the class at a later time that suits you better if you prefer.
Learn to logically build your capacity for yoga breath work and meditation in the comfort of your own home! We will also cover some of the common obstacles people encounter such as:
• I am very busy, do I have to practice for a whole hour to get the benefits?
• What do I do if I can’t focus my mind?
• When doing breathing exercises I feel anxious, should I stop or work through it?
Daily practice – even 10 minutes - of the pranayama and meditation skills covered each week will enhance the practitioner’s experience.
Yoga teachers will learn to logically sequence these yogic practices for their classes and private clients.
Note: in order to send you the recorded classes we must have your email address. If you do not receive studio emails or aren't sure that we have your email then please send it to Claire@PurpleOmYoga.com once you have registered for this course.
Date: Tuesdays October 7 - November 25
Time: 6:00-7:00am (or any time that suits)
Cost: $96 for full 8 week course
Earth Gong Bath
With Marco Dolce
Join Marco for a 1 hr immersion in the sacred and healing sound of an Earth Gong. The Earth Gong is a rare and magnificent instrument, a large, 38” gong that is tuned to the vibration of the primordial AUM, the Universal Chord, the source of all vibrations, and to the fundamental vibration of Planet Earth as she revolves around the Sun. During a gong bath, listeners typically experience a sense of connectedness and peace as the sacred sound of the gong clears blockages and restores the free flow of vital energy throughout the body
