Three Essential Breaths (Gentle/All Levels)

Our breath is our access point to the subtle vibration of prana. Shari Friedrichsen demonstrates how, through simple breathing techniques, we can use the breath to identify and heal emotional scars, release old habits, and relax deeply. Move mindfully through crocodile pose, deep breathing with a breath pillow, and nadi shodhana (alternate nostril breathing), and learn how these cleansing and nourishing practices can lead to a fuller, richer life.
