Ujjayi Pranayama for Beginners

This weeks video blog focuses on Ujjayi Pranayma (breathing) for beginners.

Ujjayi breath is used continuously throughout a flowing yoga practice. This breath enables the practitioner to maintain a steady inhalation and exhalation. Practicing this technique one takes in enough oxygen. The breath also helps to build energy to maintain a strong flowing practice, while clearing toxins out of the bodily system. This breath is especially important during transition into and out of asana (poses) as it helps practitioners to stay present, self-aware and grounded in the practice. This lends itself to a meditative quality.

It would really benefit beginners to practice this breathing technique between classes to get the most out of the asana(posture) practice.


P.s the sound is a bit off in this video clip. I can’t figure out why. Sorry for inconvenience. It will be back to normal next week 🙂
