Explanation:  The word Pranayama is really a combination of two Sanskrit words: prana and ayama. This is often misunderstood and many practitioners think the two words are prana and yama. Yama means to restrain or control, whereas ayama means NOT doing this (i.e. NOT controlling or restraining). This can be confusing, as many teachers and authors prefer to interpret Pranayama as controlling the breath (Clarke, Yin Yoga, 2011)

In breath optimisation practice we are finding ways to free up the expression of physiology which leads to Pranayama. Therefore, a better way to think of Pranayama is to consider it the potential result of breath regulation practice.

To expand (excuse the pun), this class actually incorporates a fair bit of ‘doing’, to begin with. This is done by practicing specific breathing techniques and postures to help balance and optimise respiration. When the body’s ratio of oxygen and carbon dioxide (transportation, exchange and utilisation) are optimally balanced the need to ‘do’ lessens automatically resulting in a sense of calm vitality.

In summary, this class is the practice of modulating the breath in order to free the body’s patterned habits, which are often held in the tissues and fluids. This may then open to Pranayama (non-doing), also known as Kevala Kumbhaka.

Explanation:  Refining biodynamic touch and perception skills requires an orientation to deep health that includes a connection with a relational field of dynamic stillness. To achieve this it needs the practitioner to let go of the familiar so that the body can truly unfold itself without containment from the practitioners subtle intentions.

We are caught up in our conditioning and that leads us to narrow the health possibilities for the client. By understanding that our habitual use of intention (or doing) derives from our own patterns of prior experience provides a great insight. This insight is to ’see’ beyond the limitations of that which is familiar and illuminate the nature of the unknown.
