We offer a specific course for everybody and for freedivers, Pranayama Yoga.
Pranayama Yoga is based on breathing. “Prana” means in Sanskrit vital energy. “Yama” means to control. It is a powerful Yoga which teaches us how to control the breathing and the range of vital energy. It is a way to reborn by the breath, to find the right balance. It is not only about breathing deeply, but to learn specific techniques.
It consists of a series of inspirations (puraka), expirations (rechaka) and retention of breath (kumbhaka). Regarding the distinct role of the phases of pranayama process, yogic tradition says puraka (inspiration) stimulates the body, rechaka (expiration) removes stale air with its associated energies, as well as toxins, and kumbhaka distributes the energy throughout the body. Pranayama techniques are used to control the movement of subtle energies in the body, resulting in increasing vitality in the body. However, the practice of these techniques is not insignificant. It is recommended to learn Pranayama under the supervision of a Yoga teacher.
