Pranayama Yoga To Move Energy

Beginner II

In this video, David teaches you how to use pranayama (yoga breathing exercises) to move energy through your body, clear out energetic blockages and help you feel lighter, less inhibited and more relaxed. You will be doing deep abdominal breathing, the cleansing breath, kapalabhati, retentions, yogic locks (bandhas) and meditation. If you're looking to progress with pranayama, the class that is meant to go before this class is David's Pranayama Yoga To Wake Up.

Thank you, but I have a question: When you do the contractions you start with a half breath, and then do you do a little inhale and exhale within the contractions? How is the counting for the contractions?

So many great resources here. I love sitting for this breathing practice – something very easy to ‘take with’ me wherever I may find myself.

Love it! It took me quite a few times to get the hang of the kapalabhati breathing but once I got the hang of it, it has left me much lighter and more energy for the day. Thanks David.

Thank you so much for this, and for all of the wonderful resources in this website. They such are a blessing, and I am truly grateful. I am currently working on the Yoga for Chronic Anxiety, Stress, and Depression program and I am learning so much about myself. I am feeling so optimistic about finally being able to feel better in day to day life, and your guidance is extremely motivating and empowering. Thank you so much for all of this! Namaste.

I rarely leave comments even though I go to this site every day, but I was motivated to do so today as I loved the class; level of instruction was perfect for me. I really appreciate you and your work David. :)

I have a bit of trouble with these Friday classes. Maybe I am doing them wrong, but I am not only not feeling a positive effect, I am actually feeling irritated afterwards

Even though I've done a little of this in the past I still find it quite difficult. A little more initial instruction would have helped.

Hard for me to rate it because I had a hard time following it. I didn’t know quite what to do. The terminologies are unfamiliar. I will try the Pranayama Yoga to wake up in the morning and see how that works out. I do seem to feel good afterwards.

Just finished a Kundalini class + thought a little extra Pranayama would compliment it nicely....it did. I love how energized i feel from the two and although i practice pranayama frequently i think ill use these classes a bit more...its nice to practice with someone. thank you.

I found this to be very interesting. I have never tried this before and it felt great!
I can feel my muscles beginning to stretch and be more flexible.

I sometimes lose concentration in kapalabhati but I suppose this will become more natural in time. Thanks for the refresher.

For the past year, I have listened every day for bird song as I move through my life, just as a reminder to listen. Today I am snowed in, and found my bird song at the end of this practice! Thank you for sharing that.

Hello
I had a rushed morning, a very busy week, felt so tired after work that I delayed doing yoga till late and then relaised that it was not a good idea to arouse my mind and body just before sleep. So I will resume tomorrow.
Namaste
