If you're having issues with the player:

This pranayama yoga class calms the nervous system using a series of yoga breathing exercises, including deep breathing (diaphragmatic breathing) - which combines the belly, mid-chest and upper chest breaths - and alternate nostril breathing, or Anulom Vilom. The alternate nostril breath is a challenging breathing technique, so don't be surprised if you find it difficult the first few times. This class is great to do before bed or when you need to relax.

Equipment: None
Style: Gentle Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Pranayama Yoga/Pranayama Yoga, Yoga for Anxiety Stress

I am starting to control my breath a bit more, and understand how it helps my posture, asanas...but found the 12 seconds breath very difficult. Will keep on trying.

Beautiful. Feeling very calmed and energized at the same time. The outdoor setting for the video makes it feel like a short vacation!

Good class. I struggled with the longer breaths today. I modified with a shorter count. I appreciated having more time to settle into the breath even though I found it challenging. I will revisit this practice another day to see how it feels. Thank you!

This peaceful outdoor setting is nice for a Pranayama class. I plan to do this class again in the future and feel it would be a good relaxing evening class.
